What do I need to make this Fuel Tank Cover work?

Now, what do I need to make this work? Isn't the stock gas tank one giant piece, or does the top half come off somehow? So what type of tank/fuel cell will I need in order to make this work?

I appreciate any thoughts/insights.

Or one of these?

Re: What do I need to make this Fuel Tank Cover work?

I've seen some bikes with fuel cells 'covered' with this, but the only answer I got when asking about it was "I bought it like this".

Or am I wrong and it's just really one giant tank protector as mentioned above? lol... and I'm confusing this with a custom 1 piece lightweight fuel tank.

Looks like a cover to protect the tank and nothing more.
