What in the blue blazes is this off?
« on: June 01, 2017, 03:18:56 PM »
Was sold to me as YZ250/465H, but she don't fit. YZ125G is my best guess, if not earlier.

The mounts look similar to my 400D tank and the position of the fuel tap looks similar, but on the wrong side.

Yep, no idea and no help. Sorry.

I was thinking it looks like my old YZ 250D tank, but I've sold it so can't check!

  The 2 circles under the tank there will tell you the year and month the tank was made

  Which might narrow it down a bit ... one has the year with an arrow pointing to the month

   I'm not much more help than that  ::)

The white tank is my spare yz 250 h tank, marked 1980. The blue is my split IT 400D tank (why am I keeping it?! ) the 400 doesn't have a date mark

Date code says 9/1980, sorry. Probably should have mentioned that lol
Either way it doesn't fit my IT250J, so it's not much good to me. Once I figure out what it's off whoever needs it can have it for what it owes me.
