I recently fitted a YZ450 tank to my WR450, the tank was a clean fit but the seat was a tad short (25mm short).This problem caused the seat to not latch under the tank retainer pin.To solve problem l had a modified tank pin made up that had a longer top section (futher towards back of tank) that enabled seat to latch firmly.The bike is a lot easier to move around on now and makes turning a dream.

The tank is a standard yamaha YZ450 tank, you should be able to buy one from your local yamaha dealer. And yes it makes a big improvment in steering as it enables you to get over the front of the bike better.
