bigger gas tank for WR450
Posted April 25, 2003 - 06:24 AM
The next question is if anyone knows of a 6 gl tank for the wr450?
I am looking for about 10 gls of capacity. I need mad range and am hoping that something can be modified to work with the wr450.
What kind of race mileage are you guys getting out there with the 3 gl tank?
Any input is much appreciated.

My street bike has a 4.5 gallon tank. I can't imagine a 10 gallon tank ever working on a WR450.

Their in lies the problem. This has to be a race worthy set-up. I going to be riding this bike in the Dakar Rally in Jan of 2004. It has to be able to hold up against 5000 miles of rocks, whoops and 100 mph desert racing. Has to hold up against just about anything and everything that the world can throw at it. I wonder when and if Acerbis would be willing to custom fit one for the WR's. It is about time that they start thinking of the blue machines once in while. Thanks for the input.

I have not heard good things on the IMS 3.1 gallon tank and I feel I can carry a 1/2 gallon strapped to the fender or fanny pack. I need at least another useable gallon to make it worth buying. Thanks for your evaluation and recommendation for BRP.

What kind of mileage do these bikes get in race conditions?
Thanks for all the input.

I talked with the people at Clarke just this morning and they said maybe they will have their bigger tank in another couple of weeks, but I know it will be only 3 gallons or so. I know that this is not what you wanted but it's the best I can do.... Sorry
