Default Gas tanks

     

Hi all I didn't know where this would fit in because it crosses all MX lines.

I am in the process of going white on my YZ125 and was looking for a regular size as tank for it. I didn't want or need the oversize tank. I came across this ebayer who will do a clark tank for almost any motorcycle in any color.

So YZs can have a yellow tank for the hurricane setup, black with black plastics etc.

even hot pink if you're a little light in shorts (if ya know what I mean ;o) )

here is the link:

eBay Store - Motorcycle Accessory Direct: Clarke Motorcycle ATV Gas Tanks, stock replacement and oversize desert enduro

Hope it helps.

very nice bike. now start saving so you swap in a white tank!

I just got done with my 125. New bushings and bearings every where, pro circuit exhaust, new blue plastics, new AMP'd graphics like my son's new seat, rebuilt forks and shock, new tires tubes, etc. I managed to squeeze in the Red and white graphics but I think if I go for the white tank and plastics, I may wind up divorced.

I'll give it a month or so and then go for it. I believe the old addage is correct: it is easier to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission.

Heard from a few people that the Clarke tanks are lighter then the IMS which may lead to a higher risk of cracking in a crash. I've had my IMS tank (3.7g) for about a year now, seems to be holding up pretty well.

Im thinking I like the hint of blue that the tank offers up right now. I was concerned about it being too white.
