QUESTION-About the 4 gal tank from IMS

Has anybody had problems with the seat fitting this tank on the CRF 450X? I am having a problem with the seat base hitting the back of the tank but IMS says they have never had a problem like that reported and all of the molds are the same. To make the tank fit, I would have to notch out the tabs on the base of the seat and I'm trying to avoid that. I have a 250x with the 4 gal tank and no problems fitting that one. I'm hoping this is just a bad tank but I wanted to get some feedback first before I make a decision. Thanks

I just had the 4 gal. IMS tank put on my 450 X. I must confess that I didn't do the job - my local bike shop did it - but the seat fit just fine. They didn't have to make any modifications to the seat.

Thanks. I think I'll just have to compair it to a different tank to make sure I didn't get a bad tank before I hack away.

How do the shrouds fit with the 4 gal. tank? How much taller then stock is the IMS? And how much $?


The shrouds are part of the tank
