Black IMS Tank

Has anyone had any problem with the Black IMS or any other black plastic on their bikes? I have seen alot of red and white plastic added to the 650 but not alot of black. I was wondering if there might be a reason. :)

I have read things about too much engine heat being absorbed by black tanks, not on the XR650R but the black stock tank on the CRF450R.

Scott Summers has a write up on the SRC web site.

I used heat tape on the bottom of my tank, never had a problem but I had some aviation aluminum tape, figured it was cheap insurance.
