Just spent hours reading threads on Clarke and IMS tanks for my 07 WR450. I see that the Ims is the most popular for the WR's. Does the Clarke tank fit the WR? On there web site it says only fits YZ's?

I have an '06 which I fitted a Clarke YZ tank to. Clarke said I needed to change to YZ radiator shrouds & the YZ seat to fit it so bought a SDG seat from them & shrouds locally. Bottom line was my standard WR seat fitted & YZ wouldn't as the YZ doesn't have the battery. WR standard shrouds fitted also. May not be much help for the '07 but the lesson I learn't is ask others first don't rely on Clarke. I paid for a seat I didn't need. :thumbsup:

I chose the IMS for my 07 because of the seat thing. I'm really thinking about switching to the acerbis 3.3 gal. It isn't that much extra fuel, but I like the way the tank protects the radiators.

I got the IMS tank because it fits with the Scotts Damper. At the time I was reading that the Clark did not fit with the Scotts.

Not sure about the Acerbis 3.3 and I am not a fan of the shrouds integrated with the tank as I don't like the way it looks. YMMV...

But if you check Clark tanks on websites it says "YZ-F 250/450* (2006-08) - Clarke 3.2 gallon tank Includes a new plastic cap, uses stock seat, shrouds and petcock. * will not fit 2007-08 WR 250/450 models" !!!

This is why I am confused I want to run the Clarke tank but can anyone confirm they fit??!!!
