Why the hell would you spend $4k on factory tanks when you could put the aftermarket 10g units on there for $1600 ish.....and gain a ton of usable capacity and durability. Not to mention it would add value to the bike

Who the hell wants to ride a stock bike? With the exception of one or two little parts everything that needs replaced there is an upgraded component for. To me, this looks like an opportunity to upgrade the bike and maybe have some coin in your pocket after doing so. Or I guess you could spend all that money to just have another stock bike
