Been there done that and the feel all the better for having done so .!!!!
I Too have a “C” and wanted more fuel range and a more comfee seat .
I went the way of a std metal tank though for a couple of reasons
1. IMS tanks are not as UV stable as other plastic tanks makes.
2. For the money the extra 1.5 litres an IMS gives over a s/h “A” model metal tank is not good value.
I got a great deal off fleabay for a 2004 ish “A’ tank and seat.
The tank fitted no problem , however I did need to cut off the side panel mounts on it to allow me to keep my “C” side panels. ( not sure if the IMS tank will allow you to keep the C panels )
The seat on the other hand needed some pretty drastic surgery to fit it .
The rear mounts are in different places on the 2 models . on reflection it may have been simpler to mod the “C” seat to fit the tank and improve comfort how ever I wanted to retain the original.
The result is all I wanted 24 ltrs of fuel and a seat I can sit on all day .
Sorry Cant get the pics to upload . if your intrested,pm email address and i will forward them
