KTM Tank on an XRR?

Crazy question but has anyone ever thought about or tried to mount a KTM fuel tank on an XRR? I have a sumo setup for my pig and for the road the stock tank and shrouds are really dated. Looking at some of the KTM frames they have a single backbone like the Hondas and I'm just wondering out loud if this might be feasible (with some modifications of course.) Anyone own both an EXC or similar and an XRR that could eyeball it? Some of the smaller Acerbis tanks with even the built in shrouds look pretty good by comparison.

I know it's absolutely NOT a functional mod and I'm fine with my dirt setup with my Clarke tank but a little sleeker street setup might stop me from adding a 5th bike to the garage

Fire away...Scott
