IMS oversized fuel tank installs for MX/Dirt bikes are fairly straightforward IF you have the right parts on hand… We started this project assuming the stock fuel pump hardware (retaining nut and petcock/connector) would work with the new tank. Well, the IMS tank is roughly 2-3MM thinner than the factory tank so the hardware does not work.
So that can be a bummer, but otherwise this tank is awesome! You barely notice any difference on your knees and if you only put 2.5 gallons in it, the fuel is actually held lower so the center center of gravity is actually better. Great product, I just wish RockyMountain ATV/MC would state the the tank needs extra hardware to install that is not included.
If you are looking to do this install, definitely do yourself a favor and just buy the parts first, you can return them if you don’t use them.
