    Tank swell..... isn't that swell.



    Noticed some time ago that both fairing tabs were busted due to what I assume can only be the ever so popular tank swell issue. Also my ignition key cylinder seems to be off center also.

    Kept telling myself I was going to just lengthen the tabs with some fiberglass resin and live with swollen tank, but hadn't gotten around to it yet.
    Then this happened....
    Fairing blew off doing 80mph on interstate, bounced off my face before landing in the middle of 5 lanes, and then was ran over by a large truck.
    Swell.
