WR450 gas tanks-IMS v Clarke
Posted October 16, 2008 - 08:38 PM
What is everyone using for a larger gas tank on their 2007/08 WR's?
Have had a bit of a search and seems the Clarke is well received, has anyone got an IMS? The Clarke has more capacity but does it make the bike feel to big/top heavy?
What is the quality of each tank, does one fit better and is better finished/made.
Any feedback is appreciated and post any pic's...

Ims use yz rad shouds . or not all your bolts will line up with the wr ones . But it also makes yz graphics fit your wr.
2 If you use the stock petcock it faces the wrong way . I just got one for a 06 wr and put it on to fix this issue..

here's a pic with a more stock blue look.

I'm still a bit undecided on which way to go but I am leaning towards the clarke due to the fact that you can still use the original radiator shrouds.

I also did the factory backwards petcock and would agree that it's no more difficult than stock to turn off and on.
I'd buy the IMS again tomorrow!

The only thing I didn't like about the IMS, and I really didn't like it, is the front mounting setup. I hated the idea of having to deal with that bracket at the front of the tank. Oh yeah, and the deal about having to run YZ shrouds. Other than that, it looks like a well made tank.

Does Clarke make a model for an 03 WR450? Their site only has a model listed for the 07-08's.
I have a Clarke 2.8 on my '06 WR450 but bought the YZ tank which was code No 11442. The link below shows the 11442 being for 2003 - 2005.
Clarke advised I need a YZ seat & shrouds but on the WR '06 they used YZ style shrouds & the WR seat fitted without any mods.
Hope it helps.
P.S The Clarke tank has been great & I swap from the std to the bigger one regularly depending on the ride & no fitment problems.
Cheers from Oz.
