What tanks will fit a 1975 DT 400 #1
HI Guys, it as been some time since i posted. Been working on some Huskys and Generators. Anyway, I'm starting to look for a tank for the two 1975 DT400s I've got, the two I have are rotted pretty badly. Will an aluminum MX400 or 250 tank fit? And does anyone have something that is in reasonable condition that they might part with? A couple of pics. Thanks Chris

AS far as "fit" the 74-76 the 250/360/400 DT and MX tanks should all fit just fine. Some of the YZ tanks may, but I have not tested them.

IF it isn't one thing, it's another.

Are they all the same size? And shape? I just want one in aluminum that is the right shape so it will look like a original steel tank, but won't rust out. Thanks Chris

They are all very similar, with the 74 having a unique flip up gas cap.

For aluminum, you’ll want the 75 MX or possibly one of the YZ if they fit. Note the Aluminum tanks use a male-thread screw in cap unlike the enduros. It is the same cap used on the 77-78 DT 250/400 models. There is a cool billet cap available aftermarket for these tanks as well. The steel MX360 also uses this cap.



They can be found at: www.oldskoolmx.com/Yamaha_Parts.html

IF it isn't one thing, it's another.

Thanks for the 411 Mako, I bought a couple of 75 mx tanks off ebay. A 400 and a 250.Nice caps, I'll probably get a couple. Sounds like they will do the trick for these scooters. I forgot i have a thread for these "1975 DT400 rebuild". I'll start posting on that thread for the rest of the build. If you could move this to that thread, Thanks Chris

I haven't brought the dt400 out of storage yet, so when i do I'll check the fitment. By the looks of them next to a steel tank i think they will be close enough. Yeah I can't lay off the old Huskys, got 6 !:Buds In the middle of a 71 enduro 360c 8 speed now. Takes about 2 yrs to turn a destroyed bike into what you see there. Thanks for the compliment.:) Chris
