I'm interested in a YZ fender with the tail light mounted underneath and the small mudflap looking deal. Very similar to how the KTM mounts the tail light. Has anyone done this? Any pointers on parts and installation? :)

I have a YZ fender on my 99WR400. Bolts right on. As for the light setup, try http://www.thumperta...TML/000168.html
In the DRZ section, under technical, at the bottom.

You could always just buy a universal brakelight and mount that upside down to the fender.

Hey Bryan:

I got my taillight/plate bracket from Baja Designs and it mounts as you describe on the YZ Fender. Nice tight package.

I bought the kit, but they should sell just the tail light. If your interested and they give you any flak, I can order a replacement and tell them I broke mine.

If you would like to see a picture, let me know and I'll post one.

I don't have it, but John in
Granite Bay has this exact setup. check profiles and send him an email. I am sure he can help you with what you are looking for.

I've got the exact set up. Acerbis YZ rear fender (alittle trimming needed) and an Acerbis taillight assembly. Be careful there are two tailight assemblies, look at both, one is almost exactly like the KTM.

I've got the YZ rear fender with the KTM tail light and extension. I bought a rear fender for a 400 E/XC which came with the black extension and tail light assembly. later sold the fender and got a little money back. instalation is pretty simple. the extension fits nicely within the underside of the fender. and wiring the tail light is very simple and straight forward, and the whole assembly can be attached with some wood or plastic spacers and some screws. I'm actually using some washers which have rubber bonded to them to give the assembly some flexibility. i have a picture here which shows it but it's not properly secured. if your interested i can send a better picture just let me know...i believe Owen's, yellow WR has the same setup..check out his picture as well.
good luck

I sent some photos last night, did you get them?

I just replied to the e-mail you sent me, but it looked like your wife's address.

Let me know if you would like a re-send.

Got em. My wife changed my email profile to her name. Her work PC went on the fritz and she's sending work related email from my machine. Thanks for the help and cool photos.
