I've asked this before, can you raise your gas tank JUST A LITTLE, 2" to give that a bobbed out look? Would that make the bike MORE TOP HEAVY, unstable in turns?

Depending upon your tank mounting system, I'd say it's feasible. With my 800 it would only be longer bolts and appropriate spacers. Physics state that any weight, placed further from the center of gravity, with have a greater effect. Leverage. Unstable? I guess that depends upon the turn. Most Bobbed bikes I've seen have smaller than stock tanks lifted higher. Maybe they know something? Good luck! Let us know if you try it and what the results, pros and cons, you uncover.
