New tank & seat
Posted May 30, 2000 - 04:19 AM
I installed a Clarke 3.3 gal tank & a YZ style seat last week. Results...GREAT!
Like everyone has already said before it is a very good change to make to your WR.
I wanted to try for a softer stock height YZ style seat so I ordered an IMS base & a Factory Effects seat cover & soft foam. It cost a little more, but I am very happy with the result. The seat is more comfortable than the stock seat & now the bike turns much better. For all those vertically challenged I think the bike feels a little lower, maybe it's not but it feels like I can touch the ground better.
I am very happy with the Clark tank, very easy installation. Everything bolted right up, nothing had to be modified. Bike feels much slimmer & easier to move around on.
Question for anyone with a Clarke tank. Is there any reason the switch to a right side fuel petcock?

Does anyone know the miles per gallon the WR gets on the average? I'm trying to decide if I should get the large capacity tank or the OEM YZ400 tank.. Thanks!

I average between 20 and 25 mpg on my YZ 400 depending on how hard I twist the throttle.

On fuel mileage 20-25 mpg sounds about right to me.
By the way I dealt with MX South for most of my stuff, they are great to deal with.
