I'm thinking of upgrading my older carb engine (98 bike) with a newer FI engine.  Will I have any problems matching my current tank to the newer 1000cc DS engine? 
You will need to swap tanks and the seat to a 2000 or newer combination.

I'd recommend steel over plastic due to capacity.

Thanks, but what are the problems with the old tank?  Are there Clearance issues?  One fuel line coming out of the carb tank two out of the FI tank, is that the issue?  I'm just wondering if I can overcome the problems with ingenuity, a welder, and a hammer laughingdp.

The Ducs use an internal fuel pump rated at ,I think, about 80psi and a pressure regulator on the TB.

You can use your old tank/seat if you use an external pump and can fabricate a return into the tank....and fit a filter capable of handling the pressure...and a pickup screen to protect the pump from debris....

Which is easier?   Grin

Thanks Ducpainter.  This is sounding like an expensive hassle.  Another tank plus chucking my Corbin seat.  My 98 monster has an external fuel pump so it may not be a big problem to replace it with a pump that meets the specs, but fabricating a return.  Oh well, it was an idea.

well, they are the same diameter, same 5 bolt patterm...so two out of three ain't bed!

then we just need the little leg that screws into the shelf of the tank to be the same...of and the locking mechanism too...

aaaghhhh...It'll never work!

It frickin works! a fuel cap off a 1098 goes in....I now have a hybrid - part Monster, part 1098....sure it's a small part but still.

actually the 1098 (new) cap was made with just standard alloy whilst the monster from 2003 had a heap of brass fittings in there! I'd previously heard/read about Ducati changing/degrading bolt quality in 04.

here's the 'evolution' of my very stock 1000s - there is a post in there regarding the cap - for you to use (use big sheet of white paper and tweezers when doing the cylinder swap)

Ok even after reading this great and informative thread I am not sure if my tank bike combo I am thinking of doing will work.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

So will a 2000 M900 Dark tank (not that the color matters) work on a 2001 MS4?  I am trying to find out before I try and put my old dented M900 tank on the S4, so that I can paint the current S4 tank and not miss out on any riding!!!!

Thanks for any help.

The earlier 2V tanks won't work on the S4.

Interference between the tank and either the battery or the vertical head.

If you can get an '03 or newer steel tank that will work.

Now there is a thought!!  Cool thanks for the idea, after seeing how good Scooby's looks as a dark though I have some thinking to do again.  Thanks again for the help Scooby, and DucPainter.

Anyone know what I'd need to do to get an '06 S2R plastic tank to fit on a '02 900 frame?

New brackets?
Fuel pump?

Will it even fit?
