Ims Tank

Well after buying a black ims tank, I thought i would write this.
The tank out of the box looks very well made, Then that is where my problems began.
The tank fitted fine so i thought till i went to fit the honda nose cone nine is red. I removed the 4xJ fixings and then tryed to get it to bolt back in place with the 6x fixing bolts. Things fitted fine the right side. It was the left side that gave me problems. The tank on the left side as been made slightly bigger than the red trim that covers it. As you can see in my photos the fit is poor.
I did have contact ims and sent them the photos and there reply was thats how it fits not as good as the stock tank.

see the big gap top right side.


this is the front clip that should fit in head light housing it dont.


close up of gap around lamp


bump to left side where tank is to big



right side great no problems


and fuel tap pushes against housing now


so my review
Tank looks great not fitted to bike.
Cost is over priced due to poor fitment.
I think ims made there mold, Tested it on a bike found that did not fit, And did not correct the mold.
customer service not great took long time to reply to my emails. and then to be told it is supposed to fit that poor.

I would not buy another ims tank, I would not recommend this tank to any one that wants a nice fit.

I had the exact same fitment issue's with mine. It really didn't bug me all that much, I sort of expected some fitment misses. I did take the tank back off and open up the mounting holes on the fuel valve with a round file to have the fuel valve line up correctly. I felt the constant side ward pressure on the knob may have caused problems down the road. I would have been nice to have it fit perfectly though.

Nice to see you ride but it's kinda hard to make this informational when you can't even see the XX lol

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

I have the same issues but did not fit the seat either . Now it sits on the shelf after one race as "my gift to the god of speed".

Baxter, what about the seat wouldn't fit? My seat actually fits a little better than stock, a tighter fit.

Mine didn't fit either at first, but messed with the metal tabs and I agree that it fits better than stock

The seat when first fitted was about 11/2" of the tank and the rear plastic pins on the seat base would only just align with a good shove. After playing with the metal tabs got it to within 1" of the tank but the front righthand side of the seat kept jumping out of the tank tab. The left was great fit. I know I can fix it with some time and Hot water and new mounts but it is not a priority at the moment.
