I'm thinking, if it only stalls out occasionally at idle on a cold air-cooled carburetted engine, it's probably running a bit rich. :lol3

Should be more than 500 km in it, I've gone as far as 485 but I haven't run this tank dry yet. :-)

It shouldn't have a reason to slide anyway and if it does, I'd probably rather have it slide than catch and fold in (and have the bike fall over). If there's any slope at all I'll park it...

The roo bars are clamped down there (just like the engine guards) so that shouldn't make a difference. The only place the roo bar bolts to the frame is in the middle, to the steering head.
