3.1 gallon tank for what model bike? and a stock petcock from an 06?
The IMS model# for the 07 WR450 is the same as the 06 - 07 YZ450 which is 117327. The stock petcock off of the WR will need to be turned around to fit the new IMS tank. This puts the on/off handle on the inside, closer to the head. You need to get a petcock off of a 06 or older (a steel frame model) WR which will correct this.

These bikes come from the factory notoriously lean on jetting. See Indy_WR450's post in the link to get a good starting point for jetting.

Where did you get your 06 or earlier petcocks? Dealer or other? Cost? I just ordered my tank. Plus all white plastic from UFO (except light)! Now I need graphics.
I was lazy and just put the 07 one on since I didn't realize the issue until I was in the middle of the install. I told myself that I would get the other one later but since it wasn't leaking I have just left it alone. A few years ago I had a problem with the IMS tank leaking at the petcock on my CRF450. Returned the tank, sold the bike and got the WR (not because of the tank issue but because of the green sticker issue)
The gas goes on when I unload the bike and off when I load it. Not too much of a big deal.

Based on what is happening with OHV parks in California, I'd highly recommend disabling [AIS] it rather than removing it...SC
+1 on this one. I'm seeing more and more threads about law enforcement checking for intact AIS systems . Apparently, they have pictures to compare different models.
I threw mine away. I wish at least I kept it.

I just installed my 08 BLUE IMS tank on sunday, new YZ shrouds are on the way. I tried to get the WR shrouds to fit and no dice. Yes the tank needs the petcock off the 06 or 05 models. No leaks, filled her up last night, 3gal+. The next thing is to get a new carb hose because the stock one is preformed and seems to be a little too close to the barrel for me. I didn't remove the AIS because of the local cal BLM crap that's been going on, however I installed the kit...... Just pluged up the hoses. I love the blue tanks, Hey I'm all blue. My 05 is the same, blue IMS tank........
put up a pic of the bike with the blue tank on it
