I was told that there may be a issue with matching the paint (on the new tank) with the rest of the bike. Hopefully that's not true. Has anyone heard this?
I may be needing a new tank. My self healing paints not healing. (Minor scratches)

Gents, they do have several companies that make complete tank covers in Carbon Fiber, for the H2 tank specifically. I havent seen one in person, but an option.

According to my dealer the 2016-2019 mirror coated spark black tanks are on factory back order in Japan.
There are none currently available through the European hub in The Netherlands with a 6-10 week lead time.
Maybe the US has stock but thatís what Iím being told here in the UK as a customer recently ordered one.
If anyone wants a mirror coated black tank for a 2015 H2 there is a new, boxed tank available on UK eBay :

A warning to new H2 owners. The point of gravity is a little different to some other bikes and the side stand on an H2 could be either have a little more angel or a little shorter which it doesn't. So when parking the bike it should be a little heavy to lift to the vertical and the bike should be laterally horizontal or slightly up hill when parking. Be warned, they are known to fall over.

So has anyone found a bodyshop or specialist that can actually follow the correct process & match the mirror spark black or mirror black colour correctly? Iíve not heard of paint repairs on the forum to date.

Yeah, the H2 has been known to effect gravity a little differently
