I know it depend on where and how one rides so all input is appreciated regardless of make of bike or location.
Get one of the new acerbis tanks (20l) or an IMS tank (19l) That will give you a range of around 350km which is enough for NZ. The stock tank is to small unless you carry a spare 5 litre can and that is just a PITA. I have a Safari on mine and that is too big really but it was brought for the TAT.
