I would go with the 12 instead of the 13 unless you really need the extra gas.  I have a 00zr500 with the 13 gallon tank and its kinda wide and rubs your knees.  It can get old on a long ride.  I'm thinking of putting a tank pad on this year and see if that helps.

I put on a 13 gal. last year on my 99 Zrt800, the only problwm was the metal brackets at the the front(right below the bars) was a little narrow.  But they will fit, just heat the metal up a bit a lightly tap them with a dead blow hammer.  Just be careful you don't bend them to far, and don't put your tank in when the brackets are hot  


People do complain that the tank is to wide and high, but if you ride like me it won't bother you.  I sit at the back and stay like your riding your couch.
