Need to advise,
Going to order a IMS tank for my 2001 YZ 250. Want to go with a later model one so I can use the late model radiator covers
1) Will the factory seat work ?
2) I understand I might need to make some home made brackets for mounting the tank ? True or False
3) If anyone has done this, how big of a tank can I go with on the 250 and still have access to the plug ?

Dunno about the '01, but on my '06 with the 3.2 gal IMS tank, I have no trouble accessing the plug. Factory seat fit fine on my bike with the oversized tank.

You may need custom brackets if you don't get a tank specifically designed for your '01. Best to ask IMS about that.

Looks like most of that info went away when the new site format took away all the garage photos.
