Any feedback on a larger tank for my 2006 WR450? Looks like Clark and IMS are the two main mfgrs. I've heard one has problems with leaky seams, not sure which one or if true at all. Also not clear from their web sites if I'll need YZ cowling or my stock WR will work with a little cutting here and there. I also installed aftermarket aluminum radiator guards and want to keep those in place. Any feedback would be great. Thanks
I have the acerbis tank for my 05, which is the same as your 06. I got to keep all of my plastics and my radiator brace.

Thanks for the pics, they help. I spoke with 3 shops that carry Acerbis. All 3 said their supply catalog (parts unlimited) stated you need 2003 YZ radiator shrouds to go with the 3.3 gallon Acerbis tank for the 2006 WR450F. Looks like the YZ shrouds aren't really needed. I'll post back if any challenges after I get the tank. Thanks again.
How did you make out with your replacement tank for your WR? I'm ready to do the same and am also hearing you need to replace the shrouds with the Acerbis tank which is contrary to what I'm reading here. Any clarification would help, don't want to buy shrounds if I don't need them.
