I noticed the tanks on my 06 yz 125 and my 04 yz 450 have similar mounting hardware and dimensions. I was wondering if a fuel tank for an 06 yz 450 would fit my 04 yz 450 with minimum modification. Are the shrouds just different and will the radiator tabs be the same?

It won't fit at all, in fact.  The frame is completely different from that of the YZ125/250, and from your steel frame.

I see. I was hoping that the tanks were the same and yamaha had just made a styling change on the shrouds. I have been trying to find a used desert tank for it and the 06 seems to be readily available. The 03-05 are harder to find.
Thank you!
