I just picked up a '00 WR400, plated and supermotard conversion done ... fabulous bike and a blast to ride, but I am still slightly shameful of having gone blue and was looking to change the plastics. This is my first foray into dirtbikes since an 89 KX500, so I am not clear on what Yamaha models have interchangeable plastics with the WR. Does the same year YZ plastics fit, or later year WR426/450s fit? It seems easier to get the YZ plastics in other colors ... almost everyplace I find WR400 plastics they are the stock blue.

The right hand side panel (in Australia at least) is different on WRF/YZF 400/426's. The WRF RH sideplate is wider to clear the larger WRF muffler. '98-'02 YZ rear guards will also fit, but you'll obviously need a different tail light if you go that route.
About the only thing thats identical is the front fender and side panels.

P.S. You may want to rethink the black scheme, holy crap my bike looks ultra dirty after a 1 hour MUD FREE ride. I think you said you made yours Super moto though? The black clean is really sharp.

"Yamasaki?" I think I ate something in a Japanese restaraunt last week called yamasaki! The next day wasn't pleasant.
I must say, a bright green motorcycle looks cool. If they made that color for the WR, I might actually pick some up. It's unique, that's for sure A Yamasaki?

The shame of going blue decreases every time I ride it
