    try for a week, feel like it only 6 little, but not 7 little. is ok la, can let me run for 3 day(240km), but i may top up petrol every 2 day, that make me no pressure for the fuel.

    Are these kind of modifications allowed? Able to do it on other bikes? Whats the FC of a sniper?

    it just change to bigger's tank but not spare tank, should be ok,
    so far, the shop say only for sniper because it is a ready product, not modify,
    and my FC for sniper : <90km/h is about 53km/L, >90km/h is about 45 - 50km/h

    No sir, just because it's a ready product for direct replacement doesn't makes it legal automatically. The safer side that should be referred to is "original product made by maker made for that specific model".

    I am not sure if this modification is allowed, because it seems to have issues like cg might be shifted, fire hazard in an accident, etc. Better call the authorities and ask directly.

    Dun always believe what the shop says.
