Just put on first add ons and haven't even rode it yet more than a football field. Switched from the stock 1.5 gallon tank to the IMS 2.4 gallon which I LOVE highly recommend if your going for a oversize tank this one really flows with the bike and looks like it's supposed to be on it. One thing I will add is that there is a slight gap where the front underside part of the IMS tanks don't sit flush with the body like the stock tank did about a quarter inch wide and to solve this I bought black foam weather stripping from the store and cut it and stuck it to that area of the bottom side of the tank and it completely solved the issue and it looks like the tanks is seated flush with the body now. Also threw on a works connection hour counter while I had the tank off. Any questions on either let me know.ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1381396306.776976.jpg

Looks good. And I agree, the ims tank looks like it should be on it. Looks a lot better then the original one. Take plenty of pictures of it while it's nice and clean. It won't stay like it for long! Haha
