Anyone from down under. I read where the WR450F used in the Australian safari has a 6 gallon fuel tank. I want one really bad and have emailed 10-15 people and have had no response what so ever. Supposedly the tanks are made by a local canoe company called Auqaline. If you have any suggestions or know someone who might please send me a line. thank you

those tanks are normally custom made for the teams and racers, by going to a fabricating place they may be able to make you one if you take in your old tank so they can mould off the back of it.

I saw a wr450 at the motorshow in Brisbane earlier this year and it had the 35 litre fuel tank on it.
Try contacting ballards http://www.ballards.cc/
for info.
It looked very well designed but I don't know who made it but the guys at Ballards should be able to help.
