Default Complete fairings plus tank cover

First off Im new here. I have an 01 F4i red and black. I laid it down last Saturday and am wanting to change the color to all black but i cant find any fairing sets that come with a gas tank cover and i hate painting. So any advice on where I can find a complete fairing set with tank cover would be awesome.

theres no tank cover on an f4i, nobody that makes them either. only option if you wanted to go that route would be to cover your tank yourself with carbon fiber or fiberglass, and either way youd have to paint.

The problem I have with it. Is what if you get something like the Repsol or Playboy fairings. How do you know what the tanks suppose to look like?

This was the legit Playboy race bike:



When I repainted my tank, I didn't want to deal with the stripes, but I did want to keep the mostly white look and add some graphics. So this is what my tank looks like:





The bunny graphics are photosensitive, so they blend in at some angles and really pop at others.

I think it fits the theme, even if the design isn't authentic.
