Also if I run it to almost empty then refill I would let the pump run a second or two before starting as well. No starting issues

4) It is a very well manufactured tank and it gets the job done but hard to say its worth the price. Its crazy expensive.

5) my perticular tank allowed a 5" rear stretch

one piece of advice if you do decide to stretch and redo your rear suspension is save a lot of money, make a budget...then double it because you will spend so much on little things like bolts that add up
Appreciate the info, I'll try and explain #1 a little better lol when the rock got picked up in between the tire and inner fender it crushed the sheetmetal near the fuel filler neck hose and I have had issues since then. (When filling up at certain pumps it cuts off immediately and I may have some type of vent leak because I have a grease like stain on my frame and hoses, but it doesnt smell like gas )

Here is a video I found that is similar to what happened, except my rock was maybe 1/4th of the size:
