Here's a WR400F wiring diagram.  It doesn't show a fuse.  I had an early WR250F and it had no fuse.  I would put one in there just in case something shorts, in which case the stator would probably get hot after a while.  5 amp should do it.  98WR400F wiring.jpg

If you're running WR headlight/taillight a 5A fuse is a little small - or at least the WR450 headlight is 55/60W, so it should draw around 5A on high. Add in the tail light (another 2A or so with brake light on) and you're better off with a 10A fuse.

The Polisport MMX is 35W or a hair under 3A. If you're running the older style WR taillight (on top of the fender, not at the end), the 2A figure I gave is reasonable, so you might get away with 5A but you might not. If you're running one of the newer LEDs 5A would be plenty.
