I just bought a 2006 rc51 with a dent in the tank. I am new to the RC51 world. have had 8 other sportbikes.
what years tank can i buy that will work on my 2006?
I would like to get a stock tank but will open to getting a black one also.

Physically, all the fuel tanks from 2000-2006 will interchange.
There were a few tanks from the first two years that developed leaks near the hinge weld joint.
The 2002 to 2006 fuel tanks didn't have that problem.
The 2005 to 2006 color schemes were black, so you could either look for an '05 or '06 tank, or buy an earlier one and have it painted to match.
