IMS Five gallon arrives downunder

Sorry to bring this up again, but my dealer has finally got the IMS tank in

Can someone please confirm the maximum amount of fuel they have got in theirs?

And any tricks to installing them?

Thanks in advance

Cheers Alex

Hey VB,

Check out this thread . . . . .

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=220242&page=6

Hoder's post #90 seems to cover most of the little tweaks that may be needed to fit the tank to your bike.

I'm still in procrastination mode & haven't yet put the 5-gallon tank on.

Pic of rear tire

This is the rear tire.

At this point I plan to ride mostly on the road so I'm thinking of switching to SM tires. I'd appreciate any advise if you think it would be worth the trouble expense to change.

Welcome to the group
If you raise the forks up in the triple clamps to the third notch it will make the bike handle better for pure street riding. I makes the front feel more planted and quickens up the steering making it more responsive and fun . I can't give you much in the way of advice but, looking further ahead, through the turn, helps you carry a better line...

I can't outride the Pirelli's at this point, but if I get to that point I might consider the 17's. The main advantage imho to getting the second set of wheels is, you can then have a more dirt oriented tread for the dirt...you might be better of spending the funds on riding gear or accessories for the bike...

Dan, which Perellis are you running?


....


getting into rims, tires, spokes, hubs, sprockets and rotors gets expensive, unless you find one of those special deals. Prior to that type of cash outlay, I'd try a set of Avon Distanzias. You may be pleasantly surprised just how well they stick.

MT90 AT's

Dan @ Motoxotica told me the SM wheelset is available from Husky for 850.00. Then he also sells the wheels complete with Rotors and Sprocket and Tires for around 1400.00 I think the chain may come with the package as well...I might consider extra wheels in the future but I really just want to add to the stable...

Just put a 100 hard miles on with the 38 pilot. Its OK here at sea level. The interesting thing is coming home I put some gas in it to see how its doing. Put two gals in it! If this mileage is confirmed by more and longer test my range with IMS tank will be 250+

In looking at the maps of Copper Canyon it looks like we will be getting up to 7>8000 feet. It will be rich up there.

So if a 40 and 38 pilot work better than a 42 why didn’t JD put then in his kit?

Total Electrical Draw

I have a TE 610. What do you estimate the total power requirements to be with everything running except for the starter? Alternatively, how much extra power could be tapped withour ruining the electrical system? The reason for the question is whether the stock charging system could handle a 55 watt headlamp and two 35 watt accessory lights. I recently rode in the mountains after dark and I felt like I was riding blind with just the 55 watt headlight.

Many thanks,

Jack

On my ride this Saturday I averaged 50mpg or better for a backroads street ride...I am using the stock setup for the JD Kit except for one bit that Dan had changed out for me, I think the leak jet iirc...I am also getting a small amount of pop on decel and the plug looks fine. These results are at an average of 6-800'asl and 80-90degrees...Edit: I also am running a 16T CS.

It should handle that load fine. I have run my Heated Liner at 100W plus the 50W bulb in my Tecate with no issues.
