Sorry to hijack, but how did you fit your tank vent tube and your handlebar pad? I have a new triple and Fatbar -- the vent won't fit where it goes stock with the pad on there...
SV, I had the same problem with my vent tube when I fit my Applied top clamp & fatbars. What I ended up doing was taking the end of the hose that went down into the steering stem & saftey wired or zip-tied (I can't remember which) to the left side of the frame's headstock, I don't remember what exactly I tied it to, but I think there was some holes or a bracket or something there. Whenever I need to fill up I just pull the hose that's now attached to the frame off of the little plastic valve near the cap, that way I'm not fighting a twisted rubber hose (mine will actually tighten the cap back up a bit if you let it go). I can take a pic of it over the holiday & post it on Monday if you want.
