A big improvement for the YZF would be to get the mass centered lower. Very hard to do considering the tall 5 valve head.
Good luck, If there good I'll take 2.

Electronic solenoid hydraulic auto clutch master cylinder that is on the clutch perch and has a small electronic board mounted in front of the triple clamps that reads igintion pluses (rpms) and activates the solenoid ( lever) as needed to keep from stalling. This allows you to adjust the minimum rpm on your board and release rate to avoid harsh clutch action. The beauty of this system is that for the cost of about $500. you could easily switch it to your new bike with a new slave cylinder mounting bracket.
If you want to stick to fabrication I would start with small usefull aluminum parts like:
Rad guards, clutch covers, frame guards etc. and if you cant find a competitive edge in that market. Then here are some more ideas:
Try doing a rear aluminum sub frame for tall bikes that lowers the seat 2" without losing suspension travel. Us short guys are out there and the bikes just seem to get taller every over the years.
Serrated clamping surface bark buster handle bar mounts that dont spin and actually fit the contours of fat bars!
Off road home wheel balancer that you spin by hand and an electronic load sensor read out the diferential load. Stick on weights package that would be purchased on a regular basis.
I got more if you need them!

it would cost you less to get a AL YZ, sell the motor and wires. then swap your WR motor into it. then sell the WR chassis.
