Clark tank or other options?

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone have a picture of an '03-'05 450 with a clark 2.8 tank? I would really prefer to stick with the stock unless the 2.8 is "low profile".

Also, does anyone know of any external tanks that will mount to a 450, like a number plate tank?

I ride mostly track but when I go out to the desert my friends like to go on looong rides so I only need something for about 10% of my riding time...

The Clarke tank fits really well on the '03 YZ, I had one.

I too only used it for the 10% of the time I really needed it. I'll see if I have a picture of it on my bike. The sides don't stick out any farther than stock and the top isn't very much higher at the filler neck.

Here's some pics of my '03 with the Clarke tank. Not exactly studio shots but hopefully they'll help give you an idea of what the tank looks like.

I was very happy with it and I'm kinda picky about how big and heavy my bike is. (I don't like WR's.) 2.8g was enough for me but not too much. I had a 3.4g Acerbis on my '00 and I really didn't like it, too big and more fuel than I needed.

I'm waiting for a Clarke tank for my '06.

If I hadn't stumbled onto a barely used IMS , I would have bought a Clark. I like the fact that it covers none of the side of the engine. The IMS drops so low on the sides that it causes hose routing difficulties, and sets a crossover line very close to the exhaust pipe.

I can go about 70miles at 7000 feet (leaner jetting). It's not heavy or obtrusive at all. I love it.
