Anyone out there with a 3.7 gal Safari tank AND a radiator guard? If so, which brand? I've looked at Moose Racing but their model doesn't work with anything besides the OEM tank.

Appreciate any input.

I'm running the Safari tank and a Force Accessories radiator guard (see http://www.forceaccessories.com.au/P.../FA001YA09.htm) with no problems.

That's a very helpful link. I had considered Flatland also. Thanks!

Hey Dave, it looks like Force is the way to go given that there are no fit issues between the guard and the tank. Thanks!

I bought a flatland racing skid plates and a Rad guard. I put both on . I used water hose washers to take the buzz out of the skid plate. It works but the plate still directs some noise of the motor upward.
I had the rad guard on before I installed a IMS 4.7 gallon tank. I took off the guard bcause I noticed the guard was cutting into the tank. Not sure if I will twist the guard so it doesn't rub against the tank and reinstall it.

With the 4.7 tank the rad appears to be a long way in there. I reinstalled the stock guard over the rad. I guess better than nothing?

mine just touched the side of the tank so i cut an old heavy duty MTB tube and zip tied it to the radiator guard

i think it changes with the amount of fuel and temperature as it seems to expand and contract

I would be buying one ASAP if they ever do decide to make them.
I love my little bike, but would love it even more if it was a four fiddy.

I hope not, now that I own a WR250R, I don't want my bike's resale value to take the hit it would if a WR450R was available.

Flatland racing fix.

Just to let others know, I believe I cured the buzz from the Flatland Racing skidplate.

The issue for me was the contact between the furtherst back part of the plate and the underside of the bike. I put two nylon washers per bolt as spacers in order to give some distance between plate and bike. The very rear of the plate now no longer touches the bike. This is the only thing I've done with this plate, no spray, no foam, no liners. After a check ride, I don't have any of that terrible noise and I can hear my motor just fine.
