Seeing some of your shop equipment from previous posts, you might consider that as well.

This one is efi. On the carbed bike I simply cut the fuel line and inserted a T

Regarding the lowering of the tank that is an interesting idea. However the fuel cools the pump plus lowering it will put it closer to the heads with less insulation from the heat so I doubt you could lower it much
