Can the lights be taken off a wr and just leave the Estart?

I ride mostly fire roads and old train tracks (long since taken up, and are now kept nice by the snowmobile clubs) but my best friend races and has got me great connections with the Yamaha dealer who owns the local track, aswell as a vasyt network of...farm market stores... Made many a million running them, so I can't make fun of him too much So anyway, with these connections the owner has given both of us keys and permission to ride on the tracks whenever we want.
BTW, before someone calls me a lier, this was a couple years ago, I don't ahve a bike right now.
SO what I want to do is get either an 05 WR450 or a left over 04. But the only thing is that I love the feel and light weight of the YZ, but mostly think lights look stupid. This way I get the benifit of the electric start and the 5 speed tranny plus I get to lose atleast a few pounds of plastic which I know I will crash and break within a week anyway. So I want to ditch both lights for YZ fenders and a number plate. But what I was wondering is how much difference in wieght this will give, because I am pretty sure that most of the extra 25-30 pounds is probably the starter and 5th gear. But even if there isn't much weight benifit, atleast it will look more like what I am used to riding.
So will YZ plastic (most importantly the rear fender and number plate)fit on the WR or would it take extensive modification to make it work?
