I'm looking to reduce more weight off the R6.... one place I read is to replace the stock gas tank with a figreglass tank cover over a fuel cell, like this:

http://www.pro-fiber.com/shop/product/fiberglass-fuell-tank-gas-cover-for-yamaha-yzf-r6-2006-2007-/

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? http://www.eti-fuelcel.com/#

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.
