Fitting to my XR650L was simple, including the L shaped brackets. I rode long distances in West Texas last weekend and was glad to have the extra fuel capacity.

The fit as far as mounting on the bike and the shrouds is fine. The main issue is the fit of the fuel pump where it secures in the bottom of the tank. Where the holes in the stock tank the plastic s about 1/2" thick, the plastic where the holes are in the IMS tank is only about 1/4" thick. The way the fuel pump is mounted and secured in the tank you have to have the required thickness for it to tighten up and seal. I was able to machine some spacer bushings out of some delron and fish them on to the fuel pump attachment stems using some wire run through the holes to enable getting the fuel pump to make up and seal.What a pain!!! IMS needs to address this issue and make the tank to OEM spec where the fuel pump mounts!
The supplied brackets spread the tank away from its original form which will in time fatigue those points. Without them the petcock hit the fins on the cylinder on the left side and oil line banjo bolt on the right. I wish I would have gotten the Clarke which I have on my other XRL. The supplied brackets were pretty cheesy too. I wound up having to make a better one for the right side as well. Not very happy. I wont buy another one.
The tank fit well and was easy to install. It arrived quickly and I was able to track the item.
Fits well....just needed to pull sides apart to utilize the additional brackets that fix the tank to the tabs on the frame.
I had a Acerbis gas tank that that started leaking four days before a big duel purpose ride I was going on. I ordered it on a Sunday and it was here on Tuesday. Riding on Thursday! Not only does it fit right on, I always had trouble getting the seat on with my old tank, no problem with the IMS tank. Only drawback to this tank is its a little hard to reach the choke on the carb. Overall I really like this tank and the way it looks and fits.
The tank looks good and is a durable tank for riding
I have a 2018 KTM 500 EXC-F Dual Sport that I absolutely loved.....mostly! There were 2 things I didn't like about the bike & they were both solved with my new 3.2 gallon IMS Tank. I didn't like the stock 2.2 gallon tank because I barely got 80-90 miles before the fuel light came on. I had looked into some guided Dual Sport Rides & they required a minimum 100 mile range between fill ups. So I needed a bigger tank. I also hated the transparent "off white" color of the factory tank. It looked dingy & faded next to the pure white side panels. So I ordered a 3.2 gallon black IMS tank from MotoSport who had a great price & was the only vendor who actually had one in stock! The tank arrived in a few days & fit perfectly! It was easy to install. I chose the IMS over Acerbis for 2 reasons, the Acerbis was only 3 gallons VS 3.2 on the IMS, & the IMS has threaded brass inserts for the bolts whereas the Acerbis has wood screws screwed into the plastic. The Acerbis also stuck up much higher at the seat junction & that could have been a problem getting forward on the seat to corner. The IMS has most of its extra capacity down low so you don't feel the extra weight of the additional gallon of gas. It is just as narrow as the stock tank too so no change at all in how the bike feels riding it. I've only filled up once since installing the tank & I got 126 miles before the fuel light came on! That was exactly what I was looking for! It easily breaks the 100 mile limit!
Everything worked as expected but I didn't get any stickers or calendar or a t-shirt would have been awesome.kinda looked forward to it.tank was shipped to the wrong address but it all worked out.
Purchased this gas tank recently and no issues with receiving product to putting on my bike everything went smoothly
