Hey guys i have a 2003 wr450 and my stock original fuel tank got little stress cracks in it and leaked.

However i brought another second hand 2003 tank and one ride later it has done the same thing.

So what i am asking is does anyone know where i can get a standard new replacement fuel tank.

I do not like the look of the safari tanks and want to keep that MX look not enduro look.

OR can anyone tell me if you can fit a newer tank to the 2003 model WR450?


So if anyone can tell me where to buy new fuel tanks for the 2003 model please.

.....Both electric-start WRs have had their seat heights lowered 10mm via a slimmer and shorter seat, fuel tank, and radiator shroud combination and shortened shock (by 3mm). The 450 lost an additional 10mm with a slight repositioning of the head tube on the frame, resulting in a 20mm reduction in seat height.....
