I've got a Clarke tank on my '96 YZ. Everything bolted up as it should, and there isn't a noticeable difference in plug access. Hope this helps.

Today i noticed that the gas tank on my 01 yz250 is cracked! the cracks are near the top of the tank where the middle of the three radiator shrould bolts go. it is cracked on both sides, and each crack is about 2 inches. It appears that the crack has come about from me getting forward on the seat in corners, but i am quite upset since i dont believe i have put that much pressure on to break it.

so here goes with my questions:

1. i have heard about cracked tanks on YZ-F's but has anyone had it happen on the 96-01 YZ's?
2. Does anyone know if i will be able to do a repair?
3. Has anyone tried the Clarke stock tank? at $165, they are a lot cheaper than OEM....are there any other manufacturers of stock tanks?
4. will an 02 tank fit the 01?....if i am going to fork out some cash, i may as well make mine look like an 02!

thanks

bruce

ps. if anyone has a tank for sale then please let me know!
Im kinda new to this but i recently bought an 01yz250 with a bad tank and i really didnt wanna spend $250 for a new 1. So what i found out is a 93 tank& shrouds will bolt rght on with slight modifiction, had to use a bracket to lower the seat catch and it worked flawlessly in case anyone is wondering.
