Anyone know if the 07 WR gas tank will work on an 08 yz 450? I had an 07 yz 450 and now have the 08, I would like just a little moe gas for the day. I dont ride track just trails. Dont need a lot more, just a little extra gas for the longer ride.

if the ims 3.1 tank for the 07 yz450 fits the 08 yz450 then i would say yes a wr 07 stock tank will fit. the reason being is many 07 wr450 guys are buying the yz450 ims tank (this requires them to run yz shrouds as well). so if you run a wr450 stock tank then you will need wr shrouds too. i hope this helps

The WR tank will probably fit, however, if the same pattern holds true of the aluminum framed models as did with the steel frames, The YZ seat will not fit the WR tank. Clarke has a "2.6 gallon" (actually holds 2.8) that is not as bulky as the larger IMS, and I run mine with one of these most of the time. The tank is quite slim for its size, and is not at all in the way when you ride.

i believe you are correct...some one might want to check part numbers between the two seats. i do know however the 07 wr seat worked just fine with 07 yz tank

Which makes it a nearly $400 mod using OEM parts, as opposed to $180 for the Clarke tank.

I havnt ridden an aluminum framed wr450, is the bike just as slim as the YZF is between the legs?

Doesnt the wr tank only hold like 2.2 gal or something like that?
