IMS Tank leaking after 4 months

6 posts in this topic

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...

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.
