Tripple clamps and plastics question

Are the rad scoops different on a WR450 04 to the same year YZ. I heard they were wider for bigger rads??

Yeah, I thought the tank looked different. I am after a Bob HAnanh Yellow kit for my 04 WR. I see One industries do one for a YZ426 02 model. I presume fenders will fit etc, but tank shrouds appear to be the problem. UNless WR 04 models are the same as YZ ones from the 02 model, (NO WAY, the dirtbike Gods would not be THAT kind!)
Am I alone in having the "Hots" big time for the retro yellow Yams??

The ID of the clamp is about 55mm (it measured 55.7, I'm guessing it clamps down to near 55) & the OD of the top of the forks is 53mm, somehow I doubt that that clamp is going to compress a total of 3mm worth of diameter. This stinks, I guess I'll be looking for another setup to get "big bars" on my WR now.

The "silver lining" here is that I called Applied Racing & talked to some guy named Jay, he told me to go to BTOSports.com & for $180 shipped I get a better Applied clamp made specifically for the WR in my choice of colors, & my choice of colors & bend on a set of Renthal Fat Bars. I guess I'll take the YZ Applied combo back to my dealer & get a nice stand or something instead.
