Awesome, that is super clean. My in house MSR bottle is too small in diameter. Order pending.

Also carry a 5' clear plastic siphon tube, you can take off a side panel and store it under the faux gas tank cover above the airbox (along with a 19" spare tube for your tire inside of a Tyvek bag (free from the US Postal Service)).
