just bought this fellas kit off eBay a few weeks ago....
Even ALL the way up here in Canada with customs and that crap,it only took just over a week to get here and was like a hundred bucks with shipping,
haven't had a chance to get it welded up yet but i was happy with what i received..
it comes as what you see it the pics up there.

Dropping the tank would be the safe thing to do...

Yes, you have to drop the tank, and wrap a water soaked rag around the hoses and wires to protect them in order to weld the repair plates in. Besides, you have to drop your tank anyway in order to replace that rear cross member in the frame.

I did it to mine, and it took me about 4-6 hours per side to complete the repair.
