I have one but I would need to check out the condition and send you some pictures. Ot will take me about a week to get to the shop to check it out. Still can't drive with this repaired knee.

RAZR, MXC tank is good, but your EXC seat won't fit quite right. I ditched the IMS 3.2 tank that came on my bike in favor of the cooling fan. I went back to the stock 2.1 gallon and added the rear 1.1 gal tank by Baja Designs...I'd still like to find an MXC tank for longer range trips, 4.6 would be great.

Fits good enough for me. I bought MXC tank used, and it came with the seat to match, but it was for the older bikes with the wrong mounts, so I'm using the stock EXC seat. Little gap, little problem. Protects the rads too.

I've got one for you. It's the older one, also. It, too, came with the seat, which is useless on the 05+ bikes. $40?

Would the seat and tank fit an 04 EXC? If Razr doesn't want it, I'll take it!

as of now im shopping for a 450 / 525..
It appears the 450s are much more popular than the 525. If i can find a 450 in decent condition, it isn't too expensive to get it to a 525/540 is it?

No, but unless it needs top-end work, i wouldn't worry about it much

i was sort of set on a 525, as i do like long stroke low end thumping power instead of aggressive peaky motors, the 450 has the same stroke as the 525 so they would rev at the same RPM at certain speeds?
I could be wrong

I had that pic saved on my computer already, didn't realize it was yours. A pic with the black tank would be cool too.

I'll take it if you think it'll fit on my 2004 EXC?

or if there would be little fiddling with it.

The tank will be fine, but the seat may not fit. The seat I got with my MXC tank had the two aluminum tabs, whereas the '07 EXC seat I am using with the tank has the single bolt from the bottom, but there is the small gap, which I don't care enough about. See my picture above. That is the gap people are fussing about. You should be fine, and at $40, I'd grab the tank.

Question on steering dampener. On my 07, it looks like there is no room (flat spot) for the dampener mount on the frame. The weld goes all the way up to the metal seal below the triple clamp. I just installed a damper on my friend Deb's bike, she has an 03, and there was tons of room on her frame for the mount.

Anyone else have a similar experience?

Also, anyone know where I can get a headlight guard? Can't find any for sale that fit. Got one from baja designs, it's too big.
