05 - YZ front plate on WR?
Posted April 20, 2005 - 05:07 PM
My objective is to remove the headlight and tail light assemblies to save them for the future when I need them (i.e. abuse the cheaper non-lighted plastic).
I picked up the UFO rear fender from the YZ and it bolted right on. Good to go. I also need to replace the front head light with a YZ number plate.
The part the dealer gave me labeled "YZ" (UFO as well) doesn't fit.
Do I just have the wrong front number plate or is there a special mounting bracket I'm going to need to put it on?
The headlight assembly is attached with 3 screws - one on each side at the top and one at the bottom in the center. Does anyone know if there is a plate available that bolts on using these stock points? The one I got is not even close.
Secondary question: I'd like to keep my horn (its amazing how when you beep-beep at someone on the trail they get out of your way ). It appears disconnecting the headlight assembly has cut power to the horn. Did I just disconnect too much by chance? Or.. can someone give me a wire color to splice into to put power straight to the horn without going through the headlight?
Thanks in advance. I'm new here (bought the 450 five days ago and had a blast on it last Saturday) and have already learned a bunch by reading this board.
Can't wait until Saturday! Forecast 70 & Sunny.

I have designed and make a braket so you can use your yz number plate on your wr450. It is a quick disconnect and you can switch it out and back in a matter of 30 seconds with out tools leaving your stock brackets in place. It also makes it so you can leave your odometer on the bike as well.
I also came up with some brackets to be able to use a YZ number plate, but I would like to look at what you did. Do you have any pictures? I got rid of the stock odo and now using the Trail Tech. I also relocated the ignition switch by turning it sideways and mounting it down in front of the stearing stem.

Disregard the horn part - I figured out which wire I disconnected.. plugged it in and the horn works great even without headlight.
The '05 has a horn?
