My new project. IMS Oversized tank, FMF GYRT Titanium slip-on, Work Connection REM MX skid plate, O-ring Chain, 14T ctr sprocket, stock springs and valving with sag @ 110mm.

Next steps: Work Connection Longer Link, Dr D Eng and Rad relocation kits, BRP sub-mount with Scotts damper. Replace the leaky IMS oversized tank. Yeah, I'm like the third guy in my group with an IMS tank issue on this model bike. Leaky around fuel pump...attachicon.gif2015 YZ-inger.png


That's interesting about the leaking fuel pump. I have not had any issues with my IMS tank. I reused the original seal and didn't use any sealant. Hopefully IMS is working with you to resolve the problem.

Sorry for the repost, I updated my Photobucket pics a few nights ago to reorganize them and that broke the links. Since I had a few replies I couldn't edit the original. :facepalm:

Where do you run your fuel breather hose?

It just goes from the gas cap about an inch to the right of it and down through a little hole right next to the gas cap.  That's the way the previous owner did it, and it seems to work fine.

 

My bike has the Cycra full shroud kit, and it may give it a little bit more room, not sure.  I think it just goes to the front right of the gas cap in this internet pic, but I'll try to take one tonight if I remember.  But, this pic shows another way to do it.

Yep, agreed.  I've heard that the '14 is quieter than the 10-13's but with the Cycra shrouds it sounds like they did.  I'd agree with that, pretty much sounds like my '11 did. 

 

I don't have any yet, still getting used to the bike (read - don't want to see how slow I am  lol).  With my '11 I don't remember hearing anything but exhaust when watching my GoPro vids.

I like the stock shrouds I don't feel the girth hinders me and it looks sexy! But I rode my buds 15' kx450f and did notice it was more narrow interested to see what it might do with confidence on the bike . But mainly would be interested if it aids in power and response with the improved air flow. And I do like hearing the engine take a gulp of air when you crack the throttle

MXA says that they do increase performance, although I don't know how noticeable it would be.  If you get the entire kit, it uses one piece shrouds and side panels, which is nice.  I don't know about the newer ones, but I know lots of people said the the old side panels would break at the plastic welds or where the plastic bolt things held them together.  Mine didn't have the one piece side panels, I think I still have the stockers.

 

It does add a little bit of noise, but that crap doesn't bother me.  lol  http://www.mxa-digit...14?pg=122#pg122

 

Here's a little vid, too.  Cool product if you have a few $$$ burning a hole in your pocket.  They were already on this bike when I bought it.

Lose that little vent cap. They plug up and you will play hell trying to figure out why your bike keeps dying.

Just added a GPR stabilizer pro kit and IMS desert tank to the bike. Also re routed my fuel breather. Tank and stabilizer fairly easy to install. I have to remove the sub frame to get the tank on. But very stoked on the quality of the product.

*Note* when re routing your fuel breather make sure you don't drill the hole too close to the top. When you do drill the hole to close to the top the gas cap cover does not close all the way

Look like you have some mods. Have you tried aftermarket exhaust, and did you go back to the stock exhaust?  I've read that some people are doing that because they like the low end hit of the stock exhaust.

 

I got the full stock exhaust when I bought mine, so may try it out at some point to see how I like it compared to the Dr. D Ti/Carbon setup that is on it now.

Bike is completely stock. Just a remap to smooth out the power. If I buy a complete exhaust it will be only to lighten up the bike and maybe smooth out the power even more. This bike is so fast stock.

I have the dr.d system. it softened up the bottom hit and gave me more power up top which I wanted . Softning the bottom helped me ride smoother through the turns and more power up top now I don't have to short shift. If I feel I need more in the bottom I just pin it and unleash the beast or slip the clutch to get it into the mid . jmo
