What mods has people done or is it best to leave it standard?

thank you in advance.
Althogh I haven't looked inside my own Gasgas tank for a while, what you describe sounds quite normal for most motorcycle tanks (apart from bikes with fuel pumps, Efi etc). The lower 100mm is for the "reserve" position of the petcock. When turned to "reserve", the pickup point is quite close to the bottom of the tank.
