+1. The bikes were very nice! I especially liked the fairings and tower arrangement. That seat pan was cool too. They share a lot of attributes with the new Meca kits in that regard (relocated airbox, small fairing).

I do remember It wasn't the tanks fault per se, other than Safari designed them too close to the pipe, though they recommend to use a low pipe. So, two-fold problem and it sounds like the FMF pipe will alleviate that.
