ER-6 fairings and tank

Anyone ever look at setting up a V with ER-6 tank, plastics, fairing, etc?
Just kinda curious if it could be done without lots of "fabricating."

If I remember correctly, the er6n/650r tank does not have a hole for the fuel gauge float that the versys has. That might be a problem. Maybe you could just leave it off, but then you'd loose your fuel gauge functionality.

Hmmm...I've ridden a lot of miles in my time (27+years of riding) and never owned a motorcycle that had a gas gauge. On top of that, my V shows 1 bar of fuel when it still has 3 gals in it (which makes it pretty useless imho.) I've only run a street bike out of gas once (and go figure that it was on the freeway in Vegas in August and that my wife had been into my wallet and took all my cash AND my debit/credit cards). So...tell me again, why would I need the V's gauge? LOL

Thanks for an informative input though!

What would it take to adapt the ER-6 chin fairing to the V?

Thanks JD. Thats some interesting info as well. So basically the 09 and later tank should bolt right up, but the seat will be pushed back a little. Looks like 1/2 inch or so.

Ever since my girlfriend got an ER6-N I've though about trying to install the chin spoiler on my V. I'll have give it a try the next time I know she'll be gone for a while.

It would be easy enough to fashion fiberglass cowls for the tank to cover up those nasty brackets in order to retain the V tank....but what about the headlight setup? The ER has a pretty neat little fairing up there.
