You need to drop the exhaust and heat sheild. Then you can fit a standard centre toroidal tank. Filler is a pita. Drop the bumper off and either cut a lump out the rear crash bar or remove it completely.
Water is a bit of a pain for the reducer. Use one of the oil cooler water pipes. In and straight back with two straight couplers. Switch grommet is in the left under the scuttle. Relatively straightforward conversion other than that.

Well. Personally I would go for a multipoint system. As turbo reducers on single point systems are notoriously hard to get right.
Sorry for the confusion. Maybe I should have read it properly in the first place :lol: :lol:
