The fit is great and the plastic is tough. I highly recommend it! You do have to lean it WAAAAYYYY over to use all the fuel. I dont see that as a problem though...I think of it as security (harder to run out of fuel?).
As for the ride with a full tank...I've never ridden the bike with a smaller tank...so I know no better.... I dont feel it adversely effects the ride at all...For me it's worth it for the extra range...I go about 130 miles before I fill up.

Anyone have pics of the 3.2 mounted? Don't really need the 4+ but a little more than 70 miles would be nice on the street.
you can see pics of the 3.2 on an XR650R if you go to the IMS web site. But other pics would be nice, as well as anyone with pics of a 4.6 mounted to the XRR would be great as well! Thanks guys..

It's all a compromise. Somebody let me know when you figure out how to get 4.6 gallons in a tank the size of the stocker.
BTW, my 4.6 actually holds 5 full gallons. I guess they "relax" a bit over time.

Wow, that tank looks big. I'm thinking more of the Clarke 4.3 Gal. The dementions are probibly about the same, but it does not have the over-hang above the seat. That looks like it could be a nut-breaker when hitting the wrong bump.

I do switch to the stock tank when I know I will be doing 50 mile rides for a few weeks but most of the time I ride with the 4.6. I purchased a fuel valve from Honda so both tanks are set to mount to the bike with no hassles.
I admit that there are many rides where a 3.3 gallon tank is all that one would need. Maybe someday I will find a good deal for one on E-Bay and snap it up.
