I thought the stock pumps had a valve in them to prevent flow or did you put an early model faucet that doesn't have a fuel stop? Those older faucets I heard would allow the fuel on a full tank over ride the floats or push past a leaky float and fill the cylinders with gas

With the hose off, squeeze the tank and see if you can hear any airflow from the cap. If it is, try to disassemble the valve and use the moose valve. I know it's irrelevant but the 950's stock caps used to need a flapendectomy to prevent just such an issue.

Speaking of 950's, I filled mine up today with 11.99 gallons after riding for nearly an hour while the light was flashing

Show Off! My SE holds around 3.5 gallons (My aux is reserve reserve). But when I get my 30 ltr Safari, plus my aux, plus 5ltr in each Wolman bag....

Interesting thread though because I don't want this to happen to me. Hope you get it sorted.

Does it require a canisters time?

Have some longer range goals and considering these. Does it require losing the evap canister? Also, I have the stock exhaust still and was wondering if there are issues with fuel boiling.

Yes, the evap canister needs to go, because these tanks replace the upper fairing also.
I have Akros, and the tank gets very hot by the fan, but I've had no boiling issues.
We have very few 95+ degree days here in Oregon, though.

Just make sure you route the vents down past the motor, mine dump into the skidplate. When you hit the brakes, the fuel sloshes forward into the vents. I found out the hard way which is probably why my jacket is no longer waterproof!
