    swapping parts, RT to R, R to RT

    Anyone have any experience/knowledge of swapping parts from an R onto an RT?

    Specifically, the fuel tank and seat. I wonder if the fuel tank and body panels of a R1200R can be mounted in place of the fuel tank and body panels of a R1200RT. I am going for the lighter look of the R on my RT to a new RS conversion.

    I have a Sargent seat set on my RT project bike and I also wonder if it will fit with a fuel tank from the R12R on the R12RT chassis.

    The tank in pretty different both in shape and where all the fuel fittings are located. I'd be surprised if it fit without a lot of work. The least work you'd get off with is redoing all the plumbing to it but I suspect its actually a bunch more than that.

    There was a movie one time in which I think it was Allen Arkin drove a BMW 7-series with flames painted on the side.
