Translucent IMS tank for me with raptor petcock. Check ebay for these as the raptor crowd seem to dispose of oem units in favor of aftermarket shiny chrome. Rotated the carb fuel inlet pipe to the six o'clock position. Now a 10-12" fuel line loops nicely behind the carb and up to the inlet tucking cleanly behind the frame member. Also allows ample room for an inline filter, briggs & stratton if you prefer.

IMS tank for me with the little in-line filter removed and filter that you see in the photo added- to date, no dramas with fuel supply (carby inlet elbow left standard) or anything-all good

TANK PAINTING?From time to time, the idea of painting plastic gas tanks comes up. The bad news is that aftermarket tanks use plastic that is pourous, and allows tiny amounts of fuel vapor to escape. This vapor will eventually lift paint (and vinyl decal adhesive) from the plastic, ruining the finish. There is a method for dying translucent (natural) and some colored tanks from inside and outside, described in this ThumperTalk thread: http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=611365


ACERBIS TANK? If 4.9 gallons ain't quite enough for you, but the Aqualine Safari is out of reach, and you don't mind doing some fabrication, the Acerbis 6.6 gallon tank might be what you want. Originally designed for the '92-'95 DR650's, it can be fitted to the current DR with a little work.

Eakins- One came on the stock fuel line on my 2009...

I use an IMS 4.9 clear with the IMS petcock and stock fuel line and filter. So far the only problem I have had is the gas cap. Called IMS and they sent me a new one (emailed them a copy of my purchase reciept and pics of the disinigrated rubber)

If I remember correctly- the IMS petcock has a screen (don't know if I would go as far as to call it a "filter") when in the "ON" position, but nothing on "Res". Might keep that in mind if you use it. I try not to let it get down that far. I can go about 225 miles on my DR before needing reserve.

Getting the plugs out is a pain with the IMS. Thankfully it isn't a 2 smoker!

i think the difference is i used one of those larger round filters that are shorter front to back. the large flat platic area where the inlet & outlet are located distorted overtime. i'm wondering id the cone shape filter body is stronger because of the shape. i'm gonna try that setup you have and see how it works. not sure what happened to my hose shealth part.

i also have the clear ims tank and use their supplied petcock. i did buy upgraded oring at napa when i put it together. i have zero issues with the petcock. works great. i just looked at my petcock filter through the tank opening. it's 1 long filtered supply tube with different pickup spots for on & res. so the whole thing is filtered. curently i'm filtering with that filter and the carb line one but not have a major contamination to deal with. i would really like like to elminate the carb line one as it is amazing small on constricted and i can see how it could clog. that inline filter you have is a good one. i also plan on using one of those profil filler hole sock filters in the future to catch debris before it ever goes in the tank. i'll be doing alot of riding in mexico and buying barrel gas so that is a necessity. that would give me filer hole filter > ims petcock filter > inline fuel filter...no way any debris is getting in that carb.

my cap is in good shape so i must have gotten a newer one. i'm gonna use the acerbis cap asap so i can lock it in mexico.

i would not even consider changing plugs with the tank on. i used iridium plugs for long life and used a torque wrench to install. i know for a fact the bike will run with 1 wire disconected. tbob and i were camping and drinking and he pulled the plug wire and bet me my bike would not start.
the look on his face was priceless when i told him it's dual plugged.

sure it bolts up, but the hose puts angled pressure on the end of the filter.
over time mine filter has a nice bend at the end from the pressure & probably engine heat. i saw that and yanked it before the filter finally cracked out. ymmv. it's to tight of a bend needed in the hose for the space and the filter takes it in the end.

maybe the full loop or moving the carb inlet is the only ticket.
Good picture here- I borrowed it from TrophyHunter on the big DR thread.
Molded gas hose from the carb, right angle filter- no pressure, no bending. It's a good set up.

why does it look like the carb gas inlet pipe is pulled out from the carb and about to fall out? isn't the flange on the pipe suppose to be flash against the carb body?

I'm with you on that, eakins. I just checked mine and that flange sits right up against the carb body.

Flush on my 07. On closer inspection of the picture it looks like the one in question used to also be flush. You can see a faint mark from where it sat originally. Went back to look at my carb again and the carb body looks slightly different where the inlet pipe goes into it on mine. US thing?
Is that even a BST carb?
