i have the original tank with me. but i painted the original side covers. altough my gs is 2011 but the tank which i gt painted was a new tank of 2012 model. got it from my cousin. but even if i had to get the original tank coloured, i would have gone for it because these things does not matter for a 3 years old bike. and i will get the same amount if i sell it with original tank or this tank, so better is to make the bike look better and enjoy till i have it. the rear tyre is dsi 100-90/18. no affect of acceleration and consumption but it made the grip amazing. no slip issues on hard braking now
it is paint brother. i got it done for 1800. but the matte gs in the given link is superb. thinking to give these guys a visit. but go for wrapping if your bike is new. 3500 rs is not bad for the whole bike. but keeping matte colour clean is a hell of a job. my gs is 2011 april model brother.
