New tanks.... up/downsides?

I love my 990. I am however getting/am very frustrated with the short range. This was true before I added the remus pipes. But not while getting 20 to 25mpg it's redonculous. A 'touring' bike that can only go about 125 miles between filling.

Very intrigued by the bigger tanks. Weighing the pros and cons. The only cons seem to be $$ and added weight of having more fuel on board. Maybe in addition to a non-factory look.

Are there any other major negatives? Are there rattles, etc? Is the fit and finish solid looking up close?

thanks.
