I didn't even notice it until I took my 8gs in for new tires. Yes, I live in the brutal desert 10% humidity if your lucky it's only 100 today heat. Tank is on order. Sad part is that a fellow service customer was in for the 2nd time on his 1200GSA and it's failure to start. Towed in twice. They replaced the fuel pump once and were going to replace it again. He has 700 miles on the bike. Ouch!
