think we are all in the same boat for a little while yet, everything is still in production stages and or back order'd, as of the tank my guess is its going to take some work making a bigger tank for these.

As much as I love having new bikes, It takes way to long for the parts to come out for them.

Only thing that you can get atm looks to be aftermarket exhausts

It may need to be a tank that incorporates the radiator shroud/air duct into the fuel carrying body of the tank.

Somewhere in past posts there is a pic of stewarts air box being modified . It also shows what appears to be a raised air filter, not a flat one. I assume its for more surface area. Anyone have any info on what kind of filter that may be? Sorry I can't seem to find the post...

I would imagine that it's a Uni air filter. Wait, L&M has a new air filter sponsor but I can't remember who it is.

All that technology and mass centralization seems like a wast with a tank design like that.

It's an MX bike, the tank is designed to carry the weight of the fuel near the center of the bike.

was the radiator protection you ordered the braces or the cage?

I seen a rocky mountain atv they had the cage and on the works connection site they had the brace's. I dont know which one would be better but looks like the brace's would be easier to put on.

Applied Has Factory Clamps sets for the new 2010 YZ450F in the stock 22mm offset.

They also tested different offsets with Doug Dubach and now offer 20mm Factory Sets. Doug used the 20mm clamps when he won the 30+ & 40+ Pro at the World Vet Championships at Glen Helen.

Both clamp sets are 1/2 lb lighter than stock!

I would say it would be a little while before the tank comes out and when it does acerbes will probably be the first.

It seems that they will have to make something thats includes the shrouds in the tank. There does not seem to be room for anything else.

There have been so many people saying one of the shortcomings of the bike is the placement of the fuel tank, and how it won't be any good for off-road. I thought thats what you were saying. Now I see you were talking about an aftermarket tank.

These bikes are designed for MX first. Other applications may need to sacrifice some of the design features to work (i.e. desert racing).

I would think FMX guys would like a bike with a very small gas tank..I can here them saying "why do we need a tank that holds 1.9 gallons?"
