Well, did you come here for help (that's what men do) or did you come here to complain (that's what chicks do)? :D

Krannie,

I have the first generation clamp that has the dual bolts for each bar mount. The profile of mine is different and has less outside edge to it. It cleared the stock tank and also clears the IMS 3.2 tank. It lightly contacts the Clark tank at full right turn but not as bad as the newest generation seems to do. I had filed mine at the rear bottom edge to prevent the contact. It wasn't very much. You should be able to do the same, albiet a little more. There seems to be a lot of extra beef on the outside edge of the new version. I would probably not worry at all about filing yours since it is even thicker in that area. Here are picks of mine as a reference to what I did and how my first generation clamp fits with a IMS 3.2.

Read my original post. I was not asking for help, or complaining, yet I got both help and complaints. Why is sarcasm so greatly misunderstood on this site? Geez..

Just on the XRR, not the lowly, XRL. Anything works on that bike. Have you tried one of these for your steering damper yet?:
