Tried to fit the WR IMS tank/seat that fit my 98' WR400, and later 02'WR426, to the 03'WR450. No way... Different seat length (longer in 03') and a revised position of the saddle post on the tank nixed that $ saving plan.

It should be possible, but will require a lot of work and $$$. There are some that have done the new YZF set-up, but it requires the tank, shrouds, seat, subframe, airbox, side panels, rear fender, and minor frame modifications. Possible exhaust mods too.

I decided it was cheaper to go to a Zipty fuel tank and YZF seat. :)
