Ive been looking for a desert tank for my bike, combing craigslist and such. Ive found a few deals for like 01 yz426s and what I am wondering is will a desert tank for a yz400 or yz426 work on my 99wr400. Ive searched and found a little info that hints i will need to change my seat to a yz seat but other than that what should i be looking for that will fit my bike?
Im looking in the 3 1/2 gallon range.

When I had my '99 WR400, the hot set-up was the oversize IMS YZ tank with the YZ seat.

The stock tank/seat setup was horrible. It was like having a watermelon between your legs. The IMS YZ tank for the '98-'02 400/426's is about 3.5 gallons and with the YZ seat, a lot more comfortable to ride.

Yes, any YZ400/426 tank will fit your wr, but you MUST use the YZ seat. Ergonomics will be much better...
