I have often run Aerostitch tank panniers standard size on my XR650R over my 7.0 gal IMS tank in addition to a tool pack lashed under the headlight on lower triple clamp. I have never had any overheating problems. With this set-up I am always on easy dirt/gravel roads. The lack of knee space is slight inconvenience until you get used to it. I also had Precision Concepts set up forks with new springs and valving for all the extra front end weight. Here is info on panniers:
