I got mine from Powersport Grafix (ridepg.com)
They made the templates and offer several designs.
Talk to Matt, he's very helpful and the grafics are first class!

The Aux tank is somthing that I "whipped" up last spring. It holds exactly one gallon. It's made of aluminum and is not at all in the way of anything. I had a couple of requests to make additional ones, but I really never thought too much about it.
The most expensive parts are the fill cap and the billet fill bung. The fill bung ended up costing me about $80. The rest is built out of 3 1/2" aluminum conduit. Lot's of time cutting fitting and welding, but I enjoy that.

I had a car body shop take care of the whole thing so they specialize in painting plastic. I will let you know how it holds up.

Number Plates.... nightmare

Just look at the plate for the Spanish Moto.... as compared to the German plate I took off.

It just fits between the winkers of the xchallenge... although I have shaven a little off to avoid rubbing and damage to said winkers.
