Thanks a million to RFM for shooting out a near perfect composite tank to me. This was the major casualty in my wreck for sure.

**Update- I weighed each tank to compare them and I'm pretty sure that the plastic tank was not more than 3 lbs lighter than the steel tank. Steel was 14.5 lbs and the plastic/ composite tank weighed in at 12. All in all I would rather have the steel tank as it is MUCH stronger in a crash and magnetic tank bags rule.

Now all I gotta do is make my fuel tank from my steel fuel tank work in the composite one and I'm money. Here is the bottom of the metal tank before I removed the fuel pump.

And here is what it looks like on the inside with the pump removed.
