The main reason that I put this tank on is so that I could use the YZ seat. I think that the Clarke tank is only about .1 gal. more than the stack WR tank so its really not much of an upgrade size wise except for the ability to use the flatter YZ seat. I have a buddy with the same bike running the IMS 3.4 tank in "natural" and it shows more yellowing than mine but I also don't think that he is as careful as I am and I'm pretty sure he doesn't drain the fuel. It seems like a good tank but requires you to move the petcock to the other side. I also noticed that IMS not only sells the 3.4, but also a 4.0. Might be worth checking into if you need more capacity. I can get 110 or so miles out of my 3.3 Clarke depending on the conditions. Don't forget about the Acerbis tank also. Have only seen one on a WR 450 but it was a nice tank.

I am not a huge fan of the look of the clear tanks, but functionality wise its the best hands down. And the more I have it the more I don't mind the color. If I had to buy one I would go clear just for the sake of being able to know exactly how much fuel I have on long dual sport rides. No guesing is better than pushing down the road!!
