Hello nimiz1

The plastic welder idea just wont work !

What kind of damage did the tank sustain ?

These bikes & exhaust systems get so hot ,the idea of any kind of fuel leak is best

avoided.

Buy yourself a new tank .

Thats what i think.

Good luck.

:D

Do you guys remember the video of the WR 400 burning. The person was a TT member who "fixed" a leak in his plastic tank. As I recall it held for a while....I remember him being threatened with the bill for the entire fire as well.

Dont repair this tank unless your willing to risk your bike, your self, or others in a fire. The used wr tanks never sell for much.

Won't a tank from a WR426 fit as well, could help find more tanks on Ebay. I'm sure you will find one cheap with a bit of patience. Worst case is you will need somebody to ship it overseas for ya. It'll cost a bit, but much less than $700 US I hope.

I doubt he meant 700 USD considering new clarkes go for $170 USD, $530 for shipping? Wonder where he is in the world.

When you need parts, like a fuel tank , just post your needs here on the forum and/or go on e-bay. Don't do like Bamster though... and check the countries to which the seller is willing to ship! :D Sometimes, you'll see people willing to ship worldwide. My WR is full of e-bay junk and stuffs I've bought from TTers.... seat, tank, pipe, bash plate...

My father went to Israel once. From the pictures I've seen it must be a terrific place to ride a dirt bike.
