IMS tanks

I contacted IMS, they are taking orders now for the tank, they said march hopefully.

My bike is going nowhere due to the snow, so that works for me.

Me personally, I avoid these threads. I made my choice with the Honda, and a lot of people chiming in have never ridden the bikes in question.

Has anyone tried dropping the forks in the triple clamps? I find the bike is a bit slow to turn for my liking.

For me the best thing about the CRF is the seat height, it's just more manageable for me. They may weigh the same roughly, but the CRF feels much lighter. And the CRF seat is much better.

I want to replace the bars on mine, can't decide on 11/8 or 7/8. I won't be riding it hard off road. All the ram mount balls I have are 7/8. Did you have any issues with cables etc?

Thanks

the bike has an electric fuel pump located in the gas tank. That may make a plastic tank harder to makefor the bike. Or maybe not.

@black comet

I think the simple answer comes down to how tall you are. The Yamaha is skyscraper tall, the Honda is going to have a much lower seat. I am 5'10" and found the Yamaha to be too tall for me.
