I'm about to decide on the IMS tank upgrade.
Can you please tell me if you had to do anthing different than the enclosed instruction?
Got any installation advice that might help?
Did you install your IMS over a set of rad guards? If yes, did you have any clearance problems / whose are they? How about the rad / air scoop cowls? Did you reuse the stock plastic parts, or buy aftermarket air scoop cowls?
I have UnaBiker rad guards and OEM air scoop plastic cowls.
Oh yeah, almost forgot...
Any problems with gas overheating / bubbling, from engine or other heat source? ...and, did you re-use the OEM fuel pump-to-tank gaskets?
I also have the Unabiker rad guards, but didn't put the OEM or any others scoops back on. I did have to trim my shrouds as per the instructions, but that does make the shrouds fit flush (as stock) so it's not any wider at the knees than stock. If you don't trim, they definitely stick out.
The other thing is the shroud bolt that's kind of in the middle of the shroud, about where the seat meets the tank. It's the one with the extended plastic washer thingy in the Unabiker kit. That bolt just won't reach or line up anymore. All the other bolts are in place, and it feels totally solid so I haven't lost any sleep over it.
No problems with gas overheating or bubbling so far. I'm in Washington state, it gets 80-90s here in the summer, so not super hot like AZ where I see you're from. Basically the extra fuel is near the cap, there's a bulge there where the stocker is fairly flat, and the tank extends forward more in the shrouds several inches each side. So yes it extends over the rads more than stock, but it happens to be the outsides of the shrouds where air is going to be forced over it while moving.
I don't recall on the gaskets. I definitely didn't buy any new ones, so unless the kit came with new ones, I'm still running the stockers.
