Default Bigger fuel tank

Want to put a bigger fuel tank on my iqr 600, I'm leaning towards the 10.5 gallon tank just because I really dislike the way that 12.5 gallon tank looks. Just thinking if I don't do the 12.5 I'm likely going to regret it. So my question is does anyone have the 10.5 gallon tank and have room on the back to somehow carry a fuel can? If so could I see pictures?
Thanks

I went with this one http://jspowersports.com/img/snowmobile/600rr_tank.jpg

Did not lose any tunnel space.

The difference is more looks, either one you can't fit anything between the crossover hose and the tank

Ether tank looks like shit. If your worried about "looks" keep the 8.8 and strap a 5gal to the tunnel when needed. It will stay on good when strapped properly, but that also isn't going to be appealing

I built this cause I hated the look of the 12 gallon tank.

I plastidipped the back on my 10.5, really changed the ugly factor. That being said i would never run an 8.8 again just for the simple fact its just not enough fuel. I wouldnt mind seeing a 12.5 with the back half blacked out if anyone is willing to experiment
