Colour is unimportant. I will repaint it anyway. With respect to the previous few posts, which tank versions do you have? Also, how much do you want for one?

Nice catch! Correct isn't so important per se since it's not going on a BMW bike anyway, but I do think the OEM look is much nicer. Appreciate the feedback.

Awesome, thanks!
Do they all contain 24 liters as indicated by the specs I've found? I mean, if it's the same tank for all those models it probably does, just want to be sure.
