As long as you have a feedheight of a foot or 2 your good. ;)
only reason for the pump is the high mount of the carbs relative to the tank.

Excellent, I was figuring/hoping so.  Thanks!

Today was messy.  Trying to put together one pair of rear sets but need a new shift lever.  Got a good clutch master cylinder together and figured out which front brake master I'll use but need new levers.   HEL brake and clutch lines on order.  Some more carb parts on order too.    I started chemically stripping the tank to see what I have.  Failing liner in the tank.  I'm going to call around and see if a radiator shop can dip this thing.

I had a hard time finding anyone to mess with fuel tanks. Ended up doing it myself both times. MEK strips red-kote pretty easy, might break down a couple other liners as well.

The good thing about the YZF tanks is there is a massive plate underneath you remove to get the fuel pump out. Makes it easy to get in there and remove any crud.

Heck yes it does. First tank I've had like this. It should make it easier when I have to re-coat it too.

I also found a pinhole in the top of the tank.  Looks like it should be an easy fix.  Doesn't look rotted and there was no dents under the paint.

I haven't used MEK before but it's cheap at Home Depot.

Its NASTY stuff, be sure to use it outside and a fan/respirator and some long gloves come in handy

So....I received the hydrasonic cleaner and it was bad.  I filled it up and turned it on only to hear a crazy noise like it was going to explode and electrocute everything nearby.  Definitely not working so I shipped it back this morning.  Pisser.
