Has anyone seen these tank slider/covers before?

My first post :P

Bought a Australian Supersport spec R6 few months ago, and of course on the second outing I had a failed (or succesful) attempt at dragging elbow :P

A resulting damaged but fuel tight tank has me looking at this:

It appears to be a complete tank cover for the R6 tank, similar I guess to the way CBR600RR tanks work.

Has anyone used or seen these before?

Nice forum BTW!

Interesting product. I just bought the ETI tank sliders, myself.

Also, post up pics of the bike, Mustard...

Re: Has anyone seen these tank slider/covers before?

Yeah I was lucky my tank didn't split or grind through, so hence getting this cover. It will cover the dents in the tank being a full cover and replaces the little airbox cover too. I guess it's like the ETI one but a full shell instead of just the sides.

This is the bike after the spill and still in the old owners colours and also up the inside of an R1 a few laps before. Still working out my own scheme. Need to find someone decent to help me with some graphics and tidying up my business logo:
