Any one have this trouble on their 650L. Mine split in the radius of the bend right in front of where the upper and lower parts are seam welded together for about a quarter inch. I had a plastic tank on it but the wear and tear had it looking pretty ratty and yellow. Was taking a 200 mile strictly pavement trip so I cleaned up the rest of the bike, repaired the dents in the metal tank and repainted it. I did not see the crack until a really nasty bubble appeared in my new based/cleared tank. :shocked:Took the trip any way as the crack up high just behind the tripple clamp, just did not completely fill up at gas stops. :thumbsup:
