Big tank wanted in UK

9 posts in this topic

Anyone got a large® capacity tank with the shrouds to sell or swap for the normal 2000 WR400 model in the UK?

The shrouds fit on both the '00 8 ltr tank and the 98/99 13 ltr tank. However, you will need the older seat to go with the bigger tank - the '00 seat will not fit with the 13 ltr tank.

Mike,

Are there any after market tanks which fit with the same seat, or am I going o have to find both parts?

I presume the 98/99 tank is longer than the 00 then?

Not sure about the aftermarket tanks. I'm sure someone must have covered it if you check the archives.

Yes, the older tank comes a fair bit further back. I managed to pick up a tank / seat from a '99 model so that I now have the choice. Depends what type of riding you do, but I definately prefer using the 8ltr tank/seat as you can get much further forward. Keeps running out of fuel, though!!!

Sounds like a great idea.

I had a DR600 before the WR with jacked up suspension and lowered foor pegs. The height was great but it weighed in at 150Kg, which proved an issue in the deep Buckinghamshire mud.

I am a newbe with the WR, and I went out for my first ride on Saturday, and what a huge difference! I actaully managed to stay on it most of the day.

Good to hear there are other big guys around playing with these bikes.

Andy,

Thanks for the info. I will get my pegs sorted. And it appears I have got my tank and seat courtesy of Salty.

Thanks a million.

John
