IMS Fuel Tank FItment for 2018 250 XCW

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for an oversized fuel tank for my 2018 carbureted 250 XCW.  It looks like IMS has 3.2 and 3.5 gal tanks, which both offer a fair increase over stock, while Acerbis only has a 3.0 gal tank, which is maybe just a little small.  The Acerbis 3.o seems to have good reviews in terms of fitment and impact on rider position.  Does anyone have any experience with fitment and  increased width and height over stock for either of the IMS tanks?  Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated.

I have the IMS 3.5 gallon tank on a 2017 XC 300.

You can feel that it’s wider, but it’s not obnoxiously wider.

Enough wider though that I don’t keep it on the bike unless I’m going for a longer ride. Then I’ll throw it on quick. I bought a second set of shrouds and petcock to make swap outs quick and easy.

With the 3.5 gallon tank and Lectron carb I was able to get 110 miles on one tank while in Moab.

I don’t notice the height difference at all.
