Aftermarket Tank

Any thoughts on after market tank for 05 xr650r - I need more than 70 miles? Lots of train/logging roads in Sierras - Clark or IMS?

This is a great site, lots of grat information?

I like the Clarke. Excellent fit and color.



I've tried both and with my experience buy the clarke, better fit and quality and from what i here color also, but i prefer natural. being able to see you fuel level while tearing up the trail is worth the look

Ditto on the Clarke. Had issues with IMS in the past.

I have a 4.6 IMS tank and like it a lot. I have heard good things about the clark tank. I will say that I have had a great experience with IMS's customer service dept. I had a high spped get off and bent my left IMS foot peg. One call and they hooked me up with a replacement and a lot cheaper than the originals. They also threw in a great IMS hat for me.

I also have the IMS 4.6 with absolutely no problems. Love the tank and think it looks good too. I had a Clark tank on a older XR and it seemed like a quality tank as well, but for my 650r I wanted the biggest tank I could get that still looked good. The Acerbis 7 gallon tank seems like a durable tank, but I can't get over how ugly it is.

Some bad PR about the ugly, pinholed finish on IMS tanks going around but they have taken good care of people on warranty claims. I prefer Clarke stuff myself, always top shelf quality and no fitment problems.

I have the Clarke too, and I love it :banghead: fit is flawless :banghead:
