If it does hit, should be simple enough to take a heat gun to it and carefully mold the tank to clear.

Pretty sure the Clarke will actually give you more clearance than the stock tank. Otherwise, an aftermarket lower triple that has bolts oriented in a different configuration than the stock triple is another way to gain more tank clearance

It would be cheaper to buy another XR4 when you get here than bringing yours over. The cost is rediculas, up to $5000 aus. You could buy an XR4 road registered for about $1500 when you get here.

No, you don't understand, the bikes will have to go through ADR compliance through a RAW workshop which means it will need to have everything changed to Australian standards, tyres, lights, emissions, intake, exhaust.

My partner is from NJ & she has a CBR1000RR & we have been looking into importing it, door to door including all inspections & fees to NSW best price I could find was $5000.

I have five XR4's 2001 immaculate, plated cost me $1600, 1999 which had a damaged seat cost me $950 delivered from 1000k's away, 1998 model running for parts $400 two 1997 models bush bashers $800 & $500. Look around a bit more, they're there. Try 'Gumtree.com.au'

Look up ADR compliancing & RAW workshops, save yourself some headache

I have the same fork setup and run an IMS tank. It really depends on where you placed your steering stops. I never put stops back on mine and it barely hits lock to lock. It's on the to do list tho.
