Has anyone replaced their fuel tank with a larger one. I know 1.8 Gal isn't very much for trail ridding and the WR tank is only 2.3.
Will the WR tank fit ?
Dose anyone make a 3.0 Gal tank that will fit ?

The Clarke is a lot less $ than the IMS, and a very nice product. The best price I have found is at http://www.motorcycl...ssorydirect.com . Around $160 I think.

I have a clarke brand stock size to replace a broken stocker. I can't speak for the oversized tanks, but the stock sized Clarke is definitely much more durable than the stocker and the color was a perfect match.

Thanks Guys I appreciate the information. I am in the process of turning my YZ into the ultimate woods bike. Bigger Tank, Heavy Fly Wheel, Skid Plate, Brake Snake for a start.
