I'm trying to find the entire highlight assembly from a 2008-2011 wr450

Every parts diagram I look at I can find the blue and white one but I can't find the all white one. I know they made it be used they produced a white bike. I just can't find where to buy it. Anyone know?

Nope never made white. Either paint it or get a 2012.

Well I feel dumb now. I guess all the pictures I've seen are either painted ones or really good 3rd party ones.

The 2012+ headlights have a different mounting pattern don't they?

Krannie has a 2012 on his and they are white.
They don't even make a stock type aftermarket in white. I used white plastic paint on my Supermoto.

2012 fits with a bit of fab 

 

Acerbis or Polysport might make a white one

If you have standard lower triple clamps the 2012 headlight bolts straight on to a 2007 to 2011 wr, no fabrication required.

 

You will have to change the headlight connector wiring though.

I used the 2012 mount brackets too.

I bought a new blue housing from boats.net for around $20, which doesn't come with the white number plate graphic, gave the plastic a good cleaning with paint prep/wax remover, and then gave it four or five coats of Krylon Fusion white.  It held up really well over a full season of desert racing (lots of brush scratching and a few solid wrecks) and has just a small amount of scratching/chipping on the front outer edges of the plastic.  Easily touch-up-able, which is what I will do when I change plastics and graphics later this summer.  So if you prefer the look of the 07-11, which I do, this is a viable and inexpensive option.

 

I also took some extra graphic material and cut it to add a little color to it, which also helps protect it a little.

Apparently you can get an all white WR headlight cowling, check out TT member smackit he has one one his which he got whilst visiting China last summer, & was maybe going back this summer & was gonna try & source me a couple, but my last couple of PM's have gone unanswered hope he wasn't blowing smoke up my butt, as we here in Australia did get an all white WR & a black model but the headlight, although very similar in profile & shape has a larger/ taller lens & a slightly larger/taller number plate/ top section which we call the ADR headlight for road going purposes, so if you try & PM smackit as well we might just make enough noise to awaken him again.
