I would think you get an extra 65-75 more miles out of the bike with the tank. I however dont think they are all that flattering

I thought the 3 gallon looked almost exactly like stock. The only difference I've seen from pictures posted is the top where the cap sits is slightly taller.

Anyone know of a good quality aftermarket tank worth buying? Or does no one make one yet? I really would like a little more range with the x.

i get 75-80 miles before the light comes on, and get to about 90 before i fill up. and never burn a whole tank at a time. thats more than enough range for me. im never that far from a station though.

I usually fill up at 70 to 75 miles, the thought of uncovering the fuel pump scares me, especially since mine is an '08.

I also got an '08....
What's the problem with the fuel pump when you fill up at over 75 miles?
Curious to know actually :hmmm:
The '08 bikes had a fuel pump failure issue that the newer bikes seem not to suffer from. It has nothing to do with miles riden, I just prefer to keep my pump submurged in fuel at all times because that helps keep it cool. I have no evidence it wil save the pump from an untimely death but a cool electric motor should last longer than a hot electric motor.

Thanks for the info ;)

More than a few people there have the IMS tanks. Pretty sure the bugs have been worked out and the only aesthetic issue is that the gap between the seat and the tank is a bit bigger than some people like.
