Curious to know if anyone has calculated miles on reserve for a Clark tank?

That's what I did, carried a 5 litre jerry can, that is, when testing the reserve.
The issue of reserve has more to do with the design of the fuel tap and it's compatibility with the tank shape. I believe that the Pingel fuel tap is commonly used on Harleys. For a given fuel tap design, a long flat tank will have a greater reserve than a tall narrow tank, simply because there is a greater volume of fuel at a shallow depth.
The answer is a longer primary intake tube.
Does anyone have a contact at Pingel, I can't find anything on the internet?

Are you IMS tank guys dumping the fuel trapped on the rt. side of the bike over to the left. I don't know how much gets caught there but it may make a difference.

My IMS tank should be here on Monday, so anyone have any suggestions? Anything I should do or keep an eye on when installing? The IMS must come with a petcock? and it needs a better O-ring and the vaccuum line plugged?

The petcocks lately should be good to go. I got mine last year and they had a batch of bad petcocks, which they've since replaced with good ones. Also, you shouldn't have to worry about the o-ring. Just take it out of the box and mount it on!

Just got my IMS about two weeks ago. Was leaking after two days. Don't even waste your time, get the o-ring.

IMS ships with a bad rubber gasket for the petcock. Both of mine were eaten by the gasoline as was three others that I know of. The fix however is easy.

1) go to hardware store and get a square of good quality rubber that can withstand gasoline.
2) use crappy IMS gasket to model a new better one from rubber sqaure.
3) throw away crappy gasket.
4) install new gasket with petcock.
5) ride hard, longer with IMS tank.

Install

How does (2) side cover screws and (2) bolts sound? I reckon it would be quicker to fit the seat than place your post.

Enjoy your comfy ride

The petcock that my IMS came with already had an O-ring groove machined into it, so it was as simple as installing a proper O-ring instead of the gasket.

Regarding the IMS fuel Petcock.
IMS sent me the wrong petcock when I purchased the tank last year. They wanted Me to drill out through the 2 holes in the bottom of the tank, making 1 Large hole to accommodate for their mistake.
I said No, send me the correct 2 pipe fuel petcock w/ the correct gasket.

The did finally admit to me that they were out of stock on the proper fitting petcock and it would take a couple of weeks for them to sent me the correct one.
I advised them to OPEN another box and take one out and sent it to me, or send a call tag for their tank. I had the new correct petcock in 3 days after that phone call.

--Heres a Pic of the incorrect petcock they tried to push on me. it was crap compared to the 2 pipe petcock I finally received.

Is this just a trip to the local auto store to get a o ring that fits? Or is there any specific info for getting one.

Getting ready to pull trigger on the IMS soon.
