hey kirbi, I beleive that all tank manufacturers every once in a while have a bad bacth of workers and labelers, and drill guys

It seems they fix it but in your case it almost looks like you have a mislabeled tank

you might even have an xrl tank labeled as an xr tank

I remember reading various threads on that issue, and also a 4.7 versus 4.0 confusement on the labels etc...

In my opinion after having both the IMS 4 and now the clarked OEM 2.6, that both these tanks reputed be BAD fitting look and fit much better than your pics...

so it seems to be that you would be better off NOT USING IT and returning it for a refund or exhcange

***I confused you with somebdoy else I see your in texas, no questions send it back, get a new one!***

(you also might get lucky since you are overseas) and if you are mad enough on simply getting a NEW tank shipped at no cost for your issues. dont know Ive seen some threads where new tanks just get shipped and you end up with 2 tanks jajaja

anyways

good luck

SuperTrapp tuning

Was wondering what I would be getting myself into if I were to remove some
disks from my SuperTrapp. I have re-packed it already, but would like to reduce the bark some. The section of packing is not that big, so it can only do so much. What (in the collective experience) is least number of disks that work for you? Thanks.
