IMS Tank leaking after 4 months

I put a IMS tank on my 07WR 450 about 4 months ago and was pretty happy, besides the tank yellowing at the top already. Then last night I woke up the the strong smell of gas in my house. I had not been on my bike or worked on it for weeks so I thought it was from another source. As I was walking around the garage I saw a puddle under my bike and then noticed gas leaking off the skid plate:eek: AS I looked up I saw it dripping off the tank.

I plan to call IMS to see what my options are at this point, I hope that it was just a bad apple....has anyone heard of a tank leaking like this?

no major crashes...

Yeah, but where is is leaking from? Is it the petcock gasket with the tank, or has it cracked, or....?

You just might need a new, better petcock gasket. When I got an IMS tank for my 05 WR450, the petcock gasket leaked right away. I cut a new gasket out of some rubber sheet material I have, and no problems since.
