I did exactly this to my WR426.... and believe me it's not worth the hassle, you're better off sourcing a frame from a YZ426 or AC Racing over there in the US.
The frame itself will bolt straight on. However, the two seat supports have to be removed. The seat cross bar, all the mounting tabs for the seat, rear mud guard, airbox and the rear exhaust mounting have to be relocated/fabricated/rewelded.
In the end mine worked out OK 'cause I have the skills and equipment.... but trust me, don't go down that route unless you're really prepared !
Hope this helps.
