    You mean that this sits in a recess 2cm below the cut out of tank? I'm confused, that would mean you couldn't open it, and this is a part sold for 790 at dealers.

    Nice. Did Rottweiler list the weight difference vs the stock in the 790 and stock in the 890? Obviously you are doing it for the performance reasons too, but curious anyway given this is the lightweight thread.
