I cant even believe this. I smell gas coming from my 525 and see that it is dripping out of the gas tank. The front left hand side is leaking out of the shroud mounting hole. Of course I call the dealer and they tell me my quad is out of warranty. Has anyone else had this issue? I am thinking about replacing it with the IMS tank. Let me know your thoughts.

Your dealer should take care of it. He needs to contact his rep. Ktm is aware of the well-nuts in the tanks striping out. My dealer replaced mine. Took about 2 weeks. Got a fully assembled tank. Cap, petcock, and shroud brackets. Some dealers are stubborn about calling KTM. Good luck because a stock tank is very pricey.

I tried to get mine warrantied through ktm midwest in valparaso Indiana and they only want to return your calls if you are going to spend $9500 on a new quad. (She called my friend back 3 times in 2 days)I called over 10 times got 1 call back Lorie said that she never heard of the problem, whould call the rep, and get back to me. Nothing for 2 weeks, I left 5 more messages and nothing. If you are for good service don't bother calling them.

It was suppose to be here Dec 14, still waiting, but they gave me no problems. I would take it back and let them know your going send business else where, may help them change their mind.

I did call my dealer and they said they would call KTM and see if they can get a new tank out of them. If they do I will just sell it for what I bought the IMS for. If they know they are having issues with the tanks they should have a recall and replace all of them.

I received a call from my dealer today and KTM is going to send me a new tank. I should receive the IMS tank tomorrow they tell me so I will be taking pictures of it installed. I will also have the brand new stock tank for sale when I get it.

I got home early this morning and put the new IMS tank in. It fits great. I opted for the natural so that I could see my fuel level. It doesnt look bad if I say so my self
