What rear fender is that and is the brake light plug and play?


The rear fender is made by UFO, they call it "Enduro Rear Fender" for the WR450F. Not plug and play. I had to splice/solder the Yamaha connector to the UFO wiring.

Light mud. A bit of simple green will take care of that!

I picked up a lightly used 2003 a couple years ago, only had a few scrapes and paint was worn off the frame a bit when I got it, now after two seasons of smashing against Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee rocks and trees it looks a little battle worn.

I really like the looks of the steel frame over the alu ones, no good reason...

 

Just picked up a 2008 YZ450f in mint condition that I'm fixing up for moto duty. I have all new plastic (to switch it from white to blue) Might give you a run for your money when it's done!
