i'm looking for a stock yzf tank to fit my 98wr400. i have read all the reports on the ims and acerbis tanks, but decided that i don't really need the mileage (and if i ever should, i could remount the stocker).
anyone have any ideas where i could lay my hands on one AFFORDABLY. i wouldn't have a prob. going with the sdg seat, cuz i'm used to the concrete stocker, but would be overjoyed to just find a yzf seat/tank set.
any ideas on where to find one?

thanks,

Cost wise go with the SDG YZ seat.
For a stock YZ tank definately go with
2 Dad's Racing great prices.
Ph: 818-782-4600 Mark is his name and he does have an 800 # so ask him when you call and tell him Kirk referred you.

tanx.
is this a parts dealer, kinda like bob's, or what?
does anyone know where i could get ahold of any gncc pros to see if they have any? (most of them race yzfs, not wrs, and replace the stocker with an ims tank)

Why don't you just buy a Clarke stock size YZF tank?

Don't forget to buy the seal, when you get the spacer.

i guess you could say i am trying to "yzf" my wr... do the pre-cut background for a yzf fit the stock sidepanels on a wr? i know they have a little more curve...
ALSO: does anyone know of any of the pro-gncc riders websites?... i know that all of them that run yzf's use ims tanks and i thought maybe i could buy one of the stock tanks off of one of them...
tanx, again.

i'm starting to consider the 2.2 gallon clarke tank (stock yzf)... one question... is it actually the same size/shape as the yzf, or does it have the ramp on the front like the 3.3 gallon one i've been seeing in pictures.... i want a seat/tank flat as the yzf... and does their "blue" match the blue of the 98 yzf/wr line?

Hi Guys,
I just switched to a Clarke YZF stock-sized
tank and SDG seat and I am very, very. overjoyed at the outcome. It does not ramp up like the WR tank. The whole bike seems
anorexic now, which is a good thing!
I just wish Clarke had made the tank back in
june when I bought the bike
