I've done this mod with no downsides to it. But, I have removed my charcoal canister. If it gets plugged with raw fuel, you'll cause your tank to implode, literally suck in. You also don't want to gas up to the top and park the bike in case of expansion.
Just get a guestimate of where the sealing occurs and drill below that. It is imperative that you take this part off of your bike before drilling, but I prolly didn't need to say that. Right?
I have an aftermarket cap and ring assembly from Pirate, which gives me even more room.
What was that middle thang?
