Thanks, we're continuing to make it better and better. The tank is clearanced for the Scotts tower and pretty much anyones tower. I myself run the new Scotts rubber isolated under-mount and there's plenty of room. We've even added additional clearance for the triple clamps to allow a tighter turning radius for those that ditch the stock clamps.

The tank offers significantly more radiator protection than the stocker. By eliminating the tank panels and adding additional angles to the leading edge, we've manage to stiffen up the radiator area quite a bit. Additionally, the side mounts are now lower and further forward to help support the tank wings in a crash. And just for the fun of it, we included additional clearance for the radiator cap so you no longer have to worry about knocking the reservoir hose off when you drop the bike. All good stuff...
