The fuel connector was hardest part (pull down on orange thingy and press blue buttons on each side to release) I took lots of pics -pm me if you are interested
I just put in the IMS 3.1 a few days ago and didn't remove any of the cables or hoses going to the tank. Unbolt the pump, swap the gasket, and put the pump back in.

I've got the 4.75 IMS and I love it. I enjoy having plenty of gas and IMOP the tank is well balanced on the bike. I love getting over 200 miles/tank too.

I thought about the 3-gallon one, but I figured for the same money why not get the max bang for the buck. If I want to ride with less gas I can always not fill it all the way full.
I appreciate the advice from everyone - especially yours GSBS & BlueLghtning!

I used the "Advrider" discount code and got the natural (?) color 4.7 gallon IMS tank. Hopefully, this version without color added will enable me to visually check the amount of fuel in there which seems incredibly useful.

Damn, I'm spending a lot on this *** **** machine!

Oh well . . . while you can . . .

Ride safe, ride often, enjoy it,

RS

Best not to think about it, just enjoy your machine and mods. I'm planning on keeping this one a while so I'm happy. Now if it would only get warmer!

You can see the fuel level on the natural IMS very easily.

I have zero complaints out of my 4.7gal. It was one of the very first batch and its holding up well.

Does anyone here want my K&S lifetime air filter for the WRR/X?

$20 shipped. I'll include the filth with it.

Edit, K & N, not K & S.

I went with the 3.1. The 4.7 is just massive and has more potential to go bad.

  • The place I bought it from emailed me and said it will take them 2 or 3 days to get them before they can ship it to me.


  • I'm hoping I'll get this in time and be able to install it before our group ride in two weeks.

I respect your opinion. The 4.7 works perfect for me with increased range. I originally purchased a 3.1 but sold it when the 4.7 arrived. Completely satisfied.

Any recommendations on a cheaper slab tire? I have a couple of quick high mileage trips (about 5k miles total) this summer planned that are mostly slab and see no point in burning up my knobbies. Hoping to find a rear that I can get over 6k out of.

14,000kms and counting. Still useable again this summer. Great tire for everything except the real slick stuff

IMS 3 gallon - New tank with my new pump

Good point about not having to disconnect things when you install the new tank. I had to because I installed a new fuel pump. I am one of the lucky ones with an early 08 model. Died at 3000 miles.
