The previous owner installed the current clubmans and they seem to clear the tank reasonably well. I'm honestly not sure if that is because they are wider or what. My intentions are to use clip-ons eventually when I put a GXSR or R1 front end on, but that's at least a year from now. I still need to work out compatibility issues.

Thanks for the heads up!
