Versys 650 2011

Hey, I've just started riding and, on recommendation from a friend who's been riding for ages, went with the Versys 650. I don't have much to compare it to (apart from the Honda CBs in the learner course), but have clocked up a few miles and passed the learner's test (which I think surprised a few of the guys there with smaller bikes). Glad to be here!

I took the fairing off the other day, just to see what was under it, and I liked the look. It's all back on now, but just wondering how I'd go about replacing/disguising the ugly coolant tank if I went forward with the modifications..?

Thanks guys.

I've searched for alternative coolant tank set ups. Would there be any technical issue with option 2 in the attached image? Basically the pipe that draws the coolant (x) doesn't work with gravity like in the default setup...
