IMS 07 YZ450 tank onto 07WR with no mods!!!

Did a search and found people have been fitting these tanks with a few mods either to the seat or spacing the rear mount on the tank to get them to fit properly onto the WR's

Went to put mine on today and found the same thing. Seat wont line up to get the bolts in.

Dug a little deeper into it and all you have to do is fit 2 washers under the seat locating pin on the tank. The flat black washer thing.

By lifting it up about 3mm, the seat will slide on and everything lines up perfect. So don't go cutting your seat up as some have suggested:eek: :applause: no need

Hope this helps a few people out. You do still need the YZ shrouds though

Cheers:thumbsup:

Pics????

I just put mine on (part#117327 ) It is listed by IMS for 07 both the yz and wr. If your going to put it on the wr you will need to use YZ radiator shrouds too.

no sweat. I'll do it in a few...

Here's a few pix of my tank. Black IMS tanks for the 07 are on special order basis at this time. I'm sure that will change soon as time goes by.

You will need a longer fuel line. As you can see in the picture the fuelcock is way forward and the original fuel line won't reach

You won't need a longer fuel line.....just turn the petcock around....it will be more difficult to turn on/off, but works just fine.

I used a fuel petcock from a '02 WR 426 and put it on the IMS tank so the outlet port is in the right direction. It was pretty cheap from the dealer. WR Dave.

xmarty is that a 3.1 Gal?

The air box vents, where did you get them from? Do they make a difference in power? And what do you do when you wash the bike to keep the filter from getting wet?

thanx dave. I will definitely check out this option

yes

The air box vents, where did you get them from?

I made them at my garage

Do they make a difference in power?

I don't know yet. I just rejetted the bike last night. I'm gonna take it to Doves Springs next week for it's maiden ride. (bought the bike 2 weeks ago)

And what do you do when you wash the bike to keep the filter from getting wet?

I will have to figure that out as time goes (never washed the bike yet). I'll start by being very careful. If that doesn't work I may have to plug/tape them off:banghead:
