That's a good capacity ... should add another 70 to 80 miles to the DR650 range over the IMS and perhaps 175 miles over the stock tank. Lets hope the Acerbis design allows the tank to drain fully so that ExTRA Gas can be used!

Part of the problem with the IMS is not all the capacity can be used.

The Acerbis has two petcocks, that's a good sign.

I wonder if that Acerbis will work with a Corbin seat.

More than likely, it'll work with a Corbin for the stock tank, not the IMS version...

I would guess just the opposite. That bend is really close to the IMS

It cannot be used unless you tip the bike over to the left side and drain the right lobe to the left, then it is available. If the Acerbis does have drains in both lobes, it may not have the same issue as long as the lobes are higher than the carb inlet. For me, the IMS tank has as much capacity as I will realistically ever need and the cost savings would cover nearly a half dozen full tanks of gas (1500 miles?). Plus, the IMS capacity adds as much extra weight as I am happy to deal with. However, I have an IMS mounted on my bike now and do not need to consider its replacement so for me it is a moot point. My requirements may well be different than many other DR650 owners, of course.

Fuel line routing



My first attempt at a picture. Not the greatest lighting, but you can see how the fuel fitting on the carb is at the 3 o'clock position. Gives a straight flow from the IMS tank to the carb with no low spots or tight turns.

Highway Dirtbikes Start/Kill switch

This is the new start/kill switch. Way better design and way more durable than the OEM setup at less than half the price. You need a momentary switch for the starter and an ON/OFF for the kill switch. Just cut the wires off at the old switches and splice in the new switches and you are done, takes about 15 minutes to install.

My favourite grips

But only because I haven't been able to source any ProGrip Rally foam ones over here

Tim, thanks for the pic. I had forgotten about it. That looks way better than the 9 o'clock twist. Would you post it in the index, topic #8? It will soon be lost in this thread.

That is a very nice switch assembly. FWIW, my kill switch is momentary, I can't forget it and wonder why the bike won't start. And when you're over in the index, post that under electrical controls.
