How much wider is this tank than the stock tank? How much do the shrouds stick out past the seat? I am concerned that my knees might hangup.

It is not noticeably wider at the front of the seat but

there are 3/4 " spacers under the shroud where it bolts

to the frame directly under the gas cap so at that point it is at least 1 1/2 wider. It is not hard to see the size differences but I would rather deal with it being larger than pushing because I needed 10 more miles of fuel

Looks great....Do you have radiator braces?...and if so did you have to modify them to fit?......I have the IMS tank on order...should be here next week....Really hope my new GYTR rad braces will fit

No I do not have radiator braces on my bike, probably should though. In the other thread there was a post saying the braces had to be modified slightly.

I want one! That thing looks sweet! Doesn't look like a 45 gallon drum like the Clark tank that I run.

What are those worth?

I have the GYT-R rad braces and the IMS tank. No interference from either.

Good choice. You're gonna love the way the GYT-R rad braces mount up....no need to pull radiators....brilliant.

Only mounting trouble I had with mine was when I put on my Scotts stabilizer. Some of the mounts had to be tweaked because the front of the tank was raised a little for the Post mount.

Hey jksull,

Nice photes of your tank install. I have my IMS tank and now the question comes up, did you use new gaskets for the fuel pump and fuel sender when you attached them to the new tank? My bike is new but I don't want any fuel leaks.

I didn't and no leaks.

My bike is only 6 weeks old I had a good look at them when I removed the pump and sender unit, nothing stuck when removing them and very plyable so I reused them with no problems.

I took it for a ride on sunday 82 miles fast jeep roads and about 20 miles of pavement. I put 2 gallon in it when I got home and the light had not come on, Next ride I am goint to try to run it till the light comes on to see how much is left.

Before I get flamed for that, (you can pour gas in til the light goes off) but that is not much fun for me

It is nice not to have to worry about gas before numb but sets in. I hate when I am 20 miles from gas station and wonder if I have enough gas for one more site to see.

I finally got around to installing my clear IMS 3 gallon tank today. Overall it was a pretty easy job. The shroud fit wasn't the best. I did not use the 3/4" delrin spacers as I did not want to make the bike feel wider in any way(the instructions say using the spacers is optional). I really had to push to get the left side shroud center bolt engaged.

I'd use the spacers.....I did use the spacers.....the bike doesn't feel any wider and tank is much easier to R&R with them in place.

FWIW.

I did not use the spacers and i think it should be fine. You do have to bend the plastic a little but over time it will take that form. It gave it a light more flare if you ask me, just my 2 cents. Ride On

Here are a couple outside pictures

What is that donkey dick doing sticking out of your pipe? I'm sure it makes it quiter but must say not very asthetically pleasing.
