Please do get a pic. I'd really like to make this fit better. I'll look into adding a spacer tonight when I get home.

Look for 2 brass rectangular fittings on the top of the tank, mine had these and its where the rail that came with the tank goes.

Cya in a couple hours.

Ah, right. Mine fit like crap too. I had to bend them to get the plastics on. I've had IMS tanks on a couple of bikes and the fit was terrible on both. It's too bad there aren't many alternatives. I haven't read too many problems with the Safari tank, but it's a lot more expensive and I don't like the idea of the secondary fuel pump... Oh well.

If you still need them, this is the rail I've been referring to...



...and a closeup that you can just see the washer that stands the rail just high enough to slip the plastic on...

So I'm having a bitch of a time getting that nut off. You're supposed to bend up those tabs, and I'm not even getting close. In fact, I think I'm just mashing it in even more. Any advice? Should I just forget about the tabs and go nuts?

If your tank fits better than this, can you with post or pm me a picture so I can send it to IMS?

Just for clarification: I have made sure that the side clips are in place and slotted into the panel; I've made sure the front and rear brackets are in the correct position; I've made sure that the rubber pad under the tank is sitting correctly; I have not put the heat tape on the new tank; the panels align perfectly with the stock tank.




Mine....................

I haven't removed my WR's front sprocket yet, but those peened nuts are used on lots of import car axles, and for those, I just pry the peened part out as best I can and then undo the nut. I think I read that you took the chain off. You'll never get the nut off without the chain and rear wheel in place. You'll need to put the bike in neutral and have a helper stand on the rear brake while you break the nut loose with a breaker bar or impact gun.

The chain is on, think I need to get a breaker bar then.

Don't try to unbend it, just put a 27mm socket on there and unscrew it, the tab will pop out under the pressure of being unscrewed.

New Mt43's, tubes, chain and sprockets

Hey guys and gals,

Long time reader, finally settled into a wr250r from the sport bike world. Have ATv background and love the dirt.

Decided to go with the mt43's front and back. Already have rim locks and going to order heavy tubs (maybe ultra heavy, haven't decided that yet). To help with gearing going to a 13 49 set up and buying a 14 also. 14 for the long hauls and 13 for the mountains here in Colorado. 13 49 with the mt43s should be ~13 47 with stock tires and then the 14 front will put me at 13 43 stock.... At least this is the idea, please correct me if I am wrong

Question I have is will a 112 link chain work with this set up? Any problems anyone see with this plan?

Thanks!

A screwdriver - just bend the tab back. It's the easiest thing you've never done

Where is your axle adjustment block sitting, towards the end or in the middle? Reason I ask is because I know the mt43 is a fat tire and shooting to have it set farther back to the rear of the adjustment for more clearance on the mud guard. Thanks
