Are there any after market tanks which fit with the same seat, or am I going o have to find both parts?
I presume the 98/99 tank is longer than the 00 then?

Yes, the older tank comes a fair bit further back. I managed to pick up a tank / seat from a '99 model so that I now have the choice. Depends what type of riding you do, but I definately prefer using the 8ltr tank/seat as you can get much further forward. Keeps running out of fuel, though!!!

I had a DR600 before the WR with jacked up suspension and lowered foor pegs. The height was great but it weighed in at 150Kg, which proved an issue in the deep Buckinghamshire mud.
I am a newbe with the WR, and I went out for my first ride on Saturday, and what a huge difference! I actaully managed to stay on it most of the day.
Good to hear there are other big guys around playing with these bikes.

Thanks for the info. I will get my pegs sorted. And it appears I have got my tank and seat courtesy of Salty.
Thanks a million.
