Indy, I agree with you. I don't think overfilling the frame tank would be the answer as proposed in an earlier post. Makes me think, though, about how an external tank would work if it sits higher than the frame tank. How does the engine know how high an oil level to keep in the motor? I am also
Good question... That (could) indicate that an external oil tank should be mounted low, lets say at the same level for instance as the crankcase. Lots of questions...

Now the trick setup would be like a Buell and partition off the front part of the alum swingarm as an oil resivour.

I've found a NASCAR oil filter that is 2" diameter and 7" long. That plus a cooler should give me plenty of oil.

I found this interesting oil cooler on a german website.
Seems very high quality. There is a picture for a XR600 and a KTM 620. They mention in the text (I know, it is in german ) that there is an universal kit for 159 euro. What do you guys think ? Would this be a suitable solution ? I would think to mount it like they do on the pictures : rather low, so that the total amount of oil in the bike is now higher, but it gets only to the same level in the frame.
Otherwise, absolutely no usable info from an ATV dealer. He could not tell me if an oil tank from an YZ 450 ATV would fit on the WR 450. Any of you had better luck in getting answers ?

There is no reason why it wouldn't work well on the Yammys. You'd have to customize some oils though.

Still not a solution found for the oil cooler thing...
I just picked up 2 different coolers off ebay. $5 each...both look new. One is off a ZX6 and the other is off a hawk. Got them both cause wasnt sure which would fit best.
