From the petcock I ran 5/16 id tube (Honda!) to the fuel inlet again following IMS instructions. This matches the diameter of the stock YAMAHA tubing but it's thicker wall. This is a long route under the carb and around the air filter hose and lines up nicely with the carb nipple.
In both cases the supplied tubing was too short to make it. My guess is that the YZ installation may have fewer hoses and crap in the way. Anyone think ¼ inch id tubing is small for the 450? If anyone has a better fuel tube route please comment.
I'll take some pictures tonight and get them on the page shortly.

I plan to defuel it and add tank marks starting at 1/2 gallon, then 1,2 and 3 gallons with accurate volumes.

How about that ridiculous fuel line spout on the WR450 carb? My 400 spout rotated around, this thing is pressed in or something. It really makes fuel line routing suck, and it brings the gas line up higher than the bottom of the tank. It sure would be nice to pull it out of the carb, twist it around 180 degrees and re-insert it. I don't know if it's possible. I almost started to do it last night then got scared. I sure would hate to screw up my carb.
Is this possible? has any one tried it?
I like the way the tank mounts are molded into the tank insteady of being bolted on like before and on the stocker. Looks cleaner, and the tank bolted up beautifully.
