I don't.

I have an extra fuel tank, and I have never noticed a detrimental effect on bike handling from having it-- even in mud or sand. I have noticed it's saved my ass a time or two.

I have also noticed my bike could benefit from the added travel of an S-spec suspension, if only just for the half-assed cattle guards & railroad crossings we have around here.
