Is it possible to put a new yzf fender on a 03 wr450 ?? Or newer wr fender as well. I'm looking at getting the look of my bike refreshed and just wondering if it's possible.

So I ordered an Acerbis 2012 WR450 front fender for my 2011.  The bolt holes do not line up at all - front/back/side spacing is all different.  I could creatively wallow it out with a drill bit and make it work, but I ended up re-ordering it in a 2011 (going white).  Krannie, did the Polisport 2012 WR450 bolt right up?  If so, I wonder why the Acerbis bolt pattern is different.

Cycra makes a 2012 fender with the old style bolt pattern.

Good to know! I ended up relocating the holes and got it nice and straight (and returned the 2011 to RMATV). But if I ever crack this one up, I will definitely go Cycra. Thanks a lot.

It's possible if you are willing to cut the new fender to make it fit. You will also need to drill/ make new mounting braquets to secure the fender to the bike, as it will not bolt right on to the existing mount locations. I did the same thing with my 01 wr426...

Thanks guys, sorry I haven't been on in a while. I ended up just purchessing a 2010 yzf450 fender and drilling out the holes, no cutting was needed. All in all I am happy!!!ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1389651920.489649.jpg
