I have an 05 wr450 with unabiker radiator guards. I just bought a used acerbis 3.3 gallon tank and it will not line up without removing or modifying my frame guards. Does anyone have any idea which desert tank would work on my bike with these radiator guards?

No tank, without modifying the guards.

You should get rid of those unibikers anyway, and get Mohard or Moose cage guards.

So did you cut a notch into your guards?

I actually bought these after seeing them installed on your wr. If I'm not mistaken I looked up the mohards and they only had them listed for 07+

Mine are all hacked up.

Now I have oversize radiators, and they will probably have to go

So did you cut a notch into your guards or what approach did you take?

If you are wind up not using the tank, I would be interested in purchasing it from you.

:thumbsup:  I haven't gotten around to trying to make it fit but I'll keep you in mind.
