Best tank?

Recommended Posts

Finally talked my buddy into selling his quad and joining us guys who ride without training wheels on bikes. We all dual sport ride on KTM's his new bike will be the first Suzuki in the group. He's getting a 2005 DRZ400E. I suggested the first thing he does would be to remove the steel tank, wrap it with bubble wrap and store it on a shelf. We ride tuff trails and crash alot. Which aftermarket tank fits the best? Or are stock "S" plastic tanks easy to find? Are the seats the same? Any advice on tanks would be nice. Like I said...Other than the 1974 Suzuki 185 we have this is our first crack at a Suzuki.

i think you've got it backwards. the "S" has a steel gas tank, the "E" has a plastic tank. If he is getting an "S" IMS and Clarke both make excellent tanks that are $180-200.

Yep my bad... Anyhow...Will either seat work with either tank? Does the shrouds from a steel tank fit a stock or aftermarket plastic tank? What about gas caps?

The IMS 4 gal comes with gas cap the shrouds are built in and hold fuel. Yes the seat fits. Cant say how the clark works, but have heard good things. Me, I like the extra range of the bigger tank, the extra weight does not bother me.

I like my Clarke 3.9 on my "S". It fits well and no problem with the stock seat. It is a little tight around the rad cap but I'm goona take care of that with a little shimming. Buy it through the TT Store here and you'll get a better price than anywhere else...even better than directly from Clarke. Good luck... :)
