IMS 07 YZ450 tank onto 07WR with no mods!!!

Went to put mine on today and found the same thing. Seat wont line up to get the bolts in.
Dug a little deeper into it and all you have to do is fit 2 washers under the seat locating pin on the tank. The flat black washer thing.
By lifting it up about 3mm, the seat will slide on and everything lines up perfect. So don't go cutting your seat up as some have suggested:eek: no need
Hope this helps a few people out. You do still need the YZ shrouds though

Fancy shmancy gas cap from Project 321. (this one actually came off my XR, a blue is on the way:busted: )
You will need a longer fuel line. As you can see in the picture the fuelcock is way forward and the original fuel line won't reach

I used a fuel petcock from a '02 WR 426 and put it on the IMS tank so the outlet port is in the right direction. It was pretty cheap from the dealer. WR Dave.
thanx dave. I will definitely check out this option
xmarty is that a 3.1 Gal?
The air box vents, where did you get them from?
I made them at my garage
Do they make a difference in power?
I don't know yet. I just rejetted the bike last night. I'm gonna take it to Doves Springs next week for it's maiden ride. (bought the bike 2 weeks ago)
And what do you do when you wash the bike to keep the filter from getting wet?
I will have to figure that out as time goes (never washed the bike yet). I'll start by being very careful. If that doesn't work I may have to plug/tape them off:banghead:
