There are 2 sorts of IMS one for the Corbin and one for the stock seat. 19.8-20L. That looks like it is for the stock seat as it has a metal thing-a-me.

Oi Locky,

it's definately the IMS but can't tell if for a stock seat or corbin.
They vary a bit in capacity. Anything from 18l to over 20 litre.
Someone filled his up with really hot water, put a push bike valve on the
breather and pumped it up for more capacity. A true way of finding the
faults in the tank where the material is thinner...hahaha
Regards from Tassie, Andree

I was under the impression that there was only one IMS style tank and that Corbin made 2 seats for the DR .. one for the stock tank and one for the IMS tank.

Cobin seats are rigid and cannot bend to fit the IMS tank like the stock seat.

I have two DR650s, one with a stock tank and one with an IMS tank. Each bike has a corbin saddle and they are different depending on the tank.

cheers

Only one IMS tank and that is it.
(Corbin make 2 seats; one for std tank and one for IMS)

Nominally 19 litres but they go from 17.5 to 20 litres and up to 23.5 litres if you give it the hot water treament

OK i got the tank worked out, now that i am a DR owner, what are the plastic things on the frame for, is it to stop my Trousers getting dirty. It may be the reasion as the bike was used as a commuter in Sydney so it may have been ridden to the office. Think the first thing i will need is a back tyre as the canvas is showing, got there moneys worth from that one. Locky

hey all.

got some questions.
on the carbie, whats the microswitch on the throttle that only clicks at WOT.


also, i got the new tires on the bike, its still got that vibe in the rear end, chains pretty slack, not tight anywhere i dont think.
i thought maybe wheel bearings, but i cant get the wheel to wobble, and neither could the parts dude at the suzi store this arvo.

any ideas?

Let another dr owner ride the thing and get a second opinion or ride the beast till the offending part falls off.

Mine used to vibrate, make funny noises and spit oil at me but it had 100,000k's on it.

The microswitch is something about a "Wheely stopper" I removed mine but felt no difference.

Maybe your rear end wobble is caused by wheel balance? I balance both front and rears when I do my tyres.

Yeh I asked for balancing but apparently you can't. But what about the spoke weights. Anywhere in brissy that I can get that done. Haha wheelie stopper huh. Never stops me.

Is there a dr owner southside of brissy that can take mine for a spin, otherwise I'm just gonna ignore it.
