Ducati had a bigger tank they used for endurance racing, like at Daytona. This tank is significantly larger. The above picture appears to be this style tank as the clip ons appear to be quite a bit below the tank top. I tried this style tank for one summer on my 916 when I raced it. I found the reach to the handlebars around the larger tank made it very difficult to lean off the bike in tighter corners. Sold that tank the next year. I highly recommend ETI fuel cells. The standard 748/916/996 tank comes in two shapes, the stock allows for use of the stock ignition key, the "corse style" tank uses the key opening for more fuel capacity. The RS version is only for the RS bikes and has a completely different mounting system from the stock bikes. The "daytona" tank is the larger volume tank that I speak about above. I hope this helps.

My question is why you would want it? if for collecting then yes hunt for rare race parts. If you simply want it for the look or extra fuel contact ETI my track tank is one of theirs and it is a nice part.
I have never filled it to measure capacity but see no reason it would not be more than oem.
I can measure it if you let me know where you want it measured. Also note it is not using the stock ignition so you would need to find a new home for that. Nothing on the frame needs modifications to fit IIRC.
I just picked up a tank for cheap on facebook marketplace to use on my project 748s, came in the mail today and it turns out to be full carbon. from the looks of it it hasn't been used in many years. it is in pretty good shape besides the paint but i want to make sure that i get it sealed and...
i'm looking to do a complete engine swap in my 02 998.
Proposed motor going in is a 2003 999s. - will this work - my research so far says Yes, but I'd love to hear from you guys
Items I know i'll need to rework:
Lower exhaust to clear deep sump of motor.
Coils ? can I ditch the 999...
So after what seemed like a pretty straightforward belt change on my 2002 998, the fuel pump won't prime. Also, the low fuel level light is on even though there is plenty of fuel in the tank.
The next step is due some voltage checking, but I wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts before...
