I have a desert tank on a 2004 WR450 and need a stock tank for riding track. Will a stock 2004 YZF450 tank fit a WR450? If so, what radiator shrouds will fit?

Just one additional note. You will have to modify the YZ seat to fit by carving out some of the plastic and the hook from the seat pan. The YZ uses the traditional hook that goes under the frame at the front of the seat and the WR uses the two hooks on the sides in the middle. When you are through the seat will be held on by the button on the tank and the two bolts at the rear. I've been running this setup for several years and have yet to have the seat come loose. My guess is an '05/'06 WR seat will fit w/o mod since the stock tank is very similar in shape to the YZ.

Thanks for the info, PBD. I guess I found a WR450 stock tank, so I'm going with that, but thanks for your help.
