I have had an IMS tank for every quad I have owned exept my Raptor for obvious reasons and I must say that this is by far the worst mould they have made. I understand the initial rush to get a tank for Wayne but three years down the line they could have improved it. I have spent at least 4 hours in totaol trying to get that red front nose cone to fit properly, I have removed the tank at least 4 times, played with the electrics,Plastic welded pieces on, cut pieces off and done about as much massaging as any sane person can, but I still have exactly the same result. Maybe, Maier of someone could actually make a new nose cone that fits the IMS tank!

Again thanks for the posts. I had to take a few minutes to read all of them to figure this product out. I was thinking about getting one but now that I look at the fit and associated issues afterwards I may not. All these posts were worth my time to read over before my purchase. Still wish IMS would correct their error and produce a tank that fits. Tell them there is no rush this time around, give them a year to develop a new one.

IDK for sure but I'd guess there's not enough demand for the 700xx tank, for them to even consider new R&D at this point.

I understand there is no demand but to put out a product that is of questionable quality, leave it out there and not fix it (or care) makes me wonder what other problems they have with their products. I am pretty new to this forum and type of bike but I just want a tank that never has to be filled....... Nuclear power for example. Very dry sense of humor here Folks no harm intended.

I would not question the quality of the tank at all, it does what it is supposed to, add extra fuel capacity and does a great job, just the fit is not the greatest, I would't call that a "quality" issue. Of course, I am more concerned with function then looks, so maybe that is why the fit doesn't bother me. Remember, IMS is trying to fit almost five gallons of fuel where there used to be only a little over three. If it was that easy, Honda would have done it themselves.

I have IMS tanks on one of my 450R's and my 250R. My 250R fit perfect, but I did have to do a little fender trimming on my 450R, but I was also using Maier plastics. Have a few other IMS products also, as far as I am concerned, everything they make is a quality product.

I agree with M_Quick, I am sure IMS has not sold to many of these tanks. Future sales are probably not going to be there either, especially if Honda never makes the 700XX again. Not worth their investment to develop a new mold, they would never get a return on that investment.

Your right and I spoke out of turn on quality. They do make a tank that holds the extra fuel and it works well according to the other posts. It's just the cover issue that maybe needs to be re-worked. I guess cost is a major factor if there was a demand for the product. Now if the tank was colored, red, black, blue or white. I am sure they have them out there. For now I will settle for what I have and not complain about outside factors. After all that tank helped a few professional racers win Baja competitions. As for me I'm not a professional rider, I just ride a few hours and stop.

The nose plastics do not fit all that well, but you can get all the screws back in where they are meant to go.
To someone that does not know a trx i would be surprised if they noticed anything thats wrong.
Do you want to have a much extended range, or stand admiring your quad?

Keep the old tank then when you sell it you could always put it back on ?
