Seeing this thread pop up again prompted me to check my tank again. I've had the redesigned tank for a while now and it looks fine. My dealer confirmed the new part number when they installed it and it obviously has a larger radius on the offending corner.
Are you sure you have a new tank or is it an older production tank?... 2011 bikes could have been built earlier than the fix happened or with older inventory.
