I have ridden with the IMS tank on my 2001 for a couple of years and I love it. #1 it allowed me to put on a YZ seat and #2 it gave me a heck of a lot more gas.

I thought the stock 2001 WR tank and the Zipty or IMS were within .1 gallons of each other. :)

My 4 gallon IMS holds less than a gallon more than the stocker. My stocker holds just a splash under 3 gallons. I didn't have a graduated cylinder to accurately measure the volume but it's close enough. If you're buying a 3.1 or 3.3 for the extra volume only I think you're wasting your money.

I just bought the Zipty to put the gas weight lower. Wasn't aware of the 4 gallon tank, not that I want or need it.

I am humbled, Master Hoss. :D I never considered the lower center of gravity factor. :) I needed the xtra gas. And, of course, the xtra floatation is important too.

Actually my desire for the Zipty started with wanting to get further forward on the seat... then a friend brought to my attention getting the weight lower into the bike. :)
The most noticable change was how I could squeeze the tank better between my knees because it was skinier.

On the zip ty tank watch out for the muffler clamp. As the tank settles the hot sharp edge of the clamp can rub a hole in the bottom of the tank. Just loosen the clamp and turn it so that sharp edge can't touch anymore.
The tank/yz seat combo improved the ergos of the WR a lot.
