I quite like the carbon finish with plain silver decals. Very nice. I've thought about doing the same with the db4, don't quite have the cash to splash around just yet Crying or Very sad

If it does have a fuel tap, where will it be situated as I cannot see it at a quick glance?

Many Thanks

Not many have fuel tap though , generally 2 quick release connectors under the tank, one per fuel line.

Smart. It will look better too. Having a fuel injected model all I have is the main quick release. Have had the tank off about 5 times (plugs, wire harness, etc.) never had an issue with the quick release. Great add on by Bimota

Hi my EF (!) has the cheepie screw in / out bayonet inline type tap on the main feed and which goes on to feed the side panel mounted tap but no quick release which is a bit of a pain. Both together seem to contribute to the fuelling glitches under hard acceleration sometimes when giving it a good high speed thrashing. Guessing I can get the said quick release joints from bimota as that would be a good place to start ? Looking to get a decent diameter fuel pipe and unrestricted feed to make sure the carbs are not being starved. Usual stuff, float levels etc all appear OK. Suzy RG500 used to do a similar thing I think. More of an irritation rather than a serious problem. Just now getting a chance to have a look.

Mine has one fitting similar to this. I guess the viton o ring is important.
