Difference between Clarke and IMS XR250 tanks?

Recommended Posts

It's getting time to replace the aging Clarke 4.2 gallon tank on my '93 250L, and was wondering if anyone here has first-hand knowledge of whether the IMS tank is any slimmer than the Clarke?

Thanks,

-Bob

I have both IMS and Clarke to fit '96 and later XR250s and XR400s, the IMS is somewhat less bulky and a little slimmer, the Clarke holds slightly more gas.

I'd get another Clarke. They are just a better tank than the IMS. Both myself and a friend got IMS tanks that leaked because the surface that the petcock mounted to wasn't completely flat. The Clarke I got for my XR400 was perfect.

I had quality control problems with my last ims tank and won't buy another. Their customer support is also lacking. I've bought 2 clarke tanks in the past and it's night and day difference in quality and tech support....they're cheaper too. Acerbis also makes an excellent tank
