IMS Products, the industry icon for off-road innovations, is excited to introduce the new Husqvarna 701 auxiliary tanks.

With quick disconnects on all fuel connections making installation and maintenance hassle free, IMS Products makes it easy to fuel the fun. 

MSRP: $625.00
-Adds 2.5 Gallons to your existing OEM Fuel Tank
-Available in Black and Natural
-Retains low fuel indicator

I am actually planning on getting the 701 soon and holy heck, this is perfect!! 2.5 gals in the front...guessing that will help with road behavior at higher speed as well right?

Since the aft stock fuel cell can make the bike a little light in the front, something that you can feel when accelerating hard on the pavement, the extra weight up front very well might balance out the bike. Theoretically anyway! But, if you need that kind of range, it is what it is.

exactly what I was thinking! but light end front might be good for offroading! :) def will buy this when I get the 701 (if I end up liking it) CO has wayyyyy too much to offer and its surrounding states to not have a 701

Will it fit 2015 690

Hmmmm. The 701 didn't exist then and since it has a different engine than your 2015, there might be slight differences. I don't think IMS tested older 690s, so I'd bet they just don't know. I bet it could be made to work if you're willing to assume possible custom fabbing here/there. I bet it's not far off, but I don't believe it's plug/play as is.

Notice the tank(s) have their own caps and venting, are they separate?  will it drain completely into the main tank without roadside tip -o-reserve, or run up on a bank antic's ?  thanks, looks good

I think they definitely could've done a better job with the styling on the front of them. Also I'm skeptical of where those lower mounts bolt up to the frame. Alot of people who have crashed with the frame sliders or crash bars that bolt up there have frame damage from force onto the tabs.

I'm pretty sure a plastic tank caps would weight less.   Love the Look though.....

 

FWIW my IMS on the CRF450L has a plastic cap

Saving a few oz's on a 701? :excuseme:

Use Alum Billet Parts where needed, like axle spacers, and cut the cost and weight by using plastic where you can. 

If the kit was $25 bucks less for plastic caps, yeah, I'd buy it over the kit w/ anodized alum gas caps.

Looks pretty good. Would like to hear how they fare when the bike is on it's side. How "crash worthy" are these tanks? 

 

Anyone?

I'm betting just as good at KTM 790 Tanks down low!

Like anything in that area, most of the time the handlebars and footpegs take the brunt, but nothing is crashproof under the right circumstances. But, I'd bet IMS didn't put them through crash testing specifically, so I'd guess they'll hold up to "most" crashes, but someone at some point will prove that wrong.
