I had the same problem with my IMS 3.3 tank so I cut my fuel line as short as I could. I have it come from the petcock, up and just over the chock lever then down to the carb nipple. I works now. If you run it real low you can stop, tilt the bike to the left and let the fuel drain over then hit it again. If your that low you are into it abou 100 miles though.

As for braces I went with the Unibiker braces. If you order them request the bracket for the IMS tank and it will work. These are the beefiest braces Ive seen.

You can get them right here at the TT store!! If you do a search the guy who makes them is a user as well. I e-mailed him directly and he helped me get what I needed. If you just make sure to tell them what tank you have the TT store will pass it on.
