I did the tank bolts in the 4 days I had between buying and taking on a 1200 mile OBCDR ride. they are a slightly better design, but as long as you don't let the stock ones get loose to let in some slop, they are fine.
At 1700 miles your filter should be fine. You may want to take along some filter skins if you are using the evo airbox lid.
three of us went on the trip, the oldest being an 08 with 10k miles and original fuel filter, none of us had a single problem.
oh, change the seat and put in super heavy duty tubes.........
