Screw on cap. IMS now makes them so that all other original hardware can be used. So, from top, everything still looks stock.

Do you have one yet?

 

When I called IMS they told me no screw cap tanks will be made for the YZ450 series at this time, only dry break.....

 

If you try and order it on their website it is an option, but when you click on the option it says 'product not available'......

Maybe I'm unsure of what im talking about. My dealer is ordering me one. He has one on his 250fx, so I assume he knows what he's talking about. He actually gave me a 2.9 gallon tank that fit, except it was for a 450f, and didnt leave room to get the battery and stuff in.

I will contact him tomorrow. Check status and if and when i get it, I will post pictures.

You guys ever seen anything like this? The chain link rivets is different (hallow) and is scrapped on both sides. This the only link with this. I was going to clean it and lubricate the chain again when I spotted this.

That's just the rivet link.

Did a fork rebuild and swapped out the leaky seals for some SKF ones.  Won't get to try them out for another 2+ weeks though :-(

Very typical with the stock entry level DID chain.

Acerbis makes a oversize 2.9 gal tank for the YZ250F that people have been putting on the other models (WR, YZFX 450)

It requires relocation of all the stuff you see under the seat, a smaller battery, and a new battery bracket.

http://shops.hookit....allon/4254.aspx

 

IMS makes an oversize tank too, but currently it is only Dry Break, and requires cutting and modifiying the removable seat section, effectively screwing it all up (cosmetically) to fit the dry break piece.

When you get to the page, you can choose options dry break or screw cap, but the screw cap option is ' no products found'

https://www.imsprodu...SizeSet=2.5 gal

 

I called IMS in August andt they told me they had no plans to make a screw cap tank for the WR or FX 450 models in the known future.

 

I hope I am wrong...

Just Order protections from AXP Racing ! www.axpracing.com 

Radiator braces look like a real strong cage by 3 fixation points.

The skid plate looks to cover well and also the radiator hoose  :thumbsup:

I think you didn't check the system :) It's fitted all around the radiator . One aluminium part fitted on against the frame by both radiator fixations. Then 2 tubes to fit the big side which will fit behing the radiator. 

1 : it form a real cage and strong (not as Work connection) , 

2 : it allow to keep the original air deflector so I think it's a good time spending :)

You were right. Nothing exists to use stock seat and gas cover combo. So, I'm going to use the dry brake combo, and deal with results. I have to have the extra fuel, so I'll have to deal with this minor issue. Oh well....grrr

I have the IMS 3 gallon and it works great. Looks OK but does not use stock shrouds so does not look as good as stock. It does the job though.

That's the only skid plate with good water pump coverage.
