They finally showed up. Got them installed last night and gassed up. All 12 gallons worth. The bike handles well on pavement yet, hopefully get on some trails this weekend. I have the SE .59 springs installed, and would highly recommend them if you plan to use these. White rear panels are on order to finish off the look. They are 25.5" wide, This is about the same width as the stock tanks and my SW crash bars installed. So figure about 2" wider on a side from stock. I'll be working on getting my SW bars modified to work w/ these tanks in the future. They weight in w/o the fitting and lights at 14.5 lbs. I have not weighed the stock tanks and front fairing piece to see how that compares. 6 gallons of gas in these tanks comes up to about the bottom of the coolant reservoir. (bottom of the tank window) It will caring the fuel very low for better center of gravity when you don't need all the range. They are not much wider where your knees are placed too, maybe 1/2" or so. Standing up you don't even notice a change. I have also installed an 08 SX front fender to replace my badly beaten up SM fender. The new design of these fender eliminates the need for the fender brace. When this one is toast I think I'll give the SE fender a try, I think out of all the ones I've tried I like the SE the best. "Added 12/28/09 for referance" The SE springs fit into the 04' "S" forks with out need to modify the hydro stop. The stop was the same diameter as the one in my 06' "S". With the SE .59 springs I installed a .850 spacer in the 04', my 06' took .410. The 04 "S" took about 750cc of oil to fill up 100mm from top.
