Hey all. I want to get rid of my headlight and number plate and go to a YZ front plate. Will a YZ front plate work? Im also in the process of putting on a zip-ty fuel screw and the Boyesen quickshot. What is the easiest way to set that up. I tried over the weekend. No go. Maybe Im intimidated or maybe its all the crap in the way. Any thoughts. Anyone near Portland that would help and I can assist and learn.

Also, Im not sure if my steering stem is bent. No hard crashes. I look at my top clamp and visually look at it straight. From the from my front will is pointed to the right. One advice was bang the wheel against a tree or wall. Any suggestions. Speed wobbles at high speed. Thanks.

I do know the YZ front plate will work, if you also remove the odometer. I'm not sure about the rest of the mods.

I'd prolly loosen up the triples and make sure everything is aligned properly....

I put a YZ number plate and rear fender on my 450, I removed the ODO and used my GYTR bark buster mount to mount my ignition button on. It will work and looks great! Good luck :banghead:

I put a YZ plate on my WR as well. I wanted to keep the odometer, so I fabbed up some angle brackets from some aluminum bar stock. I punched three holes in the front of the plate and used the mounting points for the stock WR headlight/number plate. I used the OEM bolts and inserts and it looks stock...SC

Loosen the fork pinch bolts, axle nut and axle pinch bolts. Hold the wheel between knees and alighn bars with wheel. Tighten fork pinch bolts, axle nut and pinch bolts.

YZ rear fender bolts right on as well. If you yank the battery and Estart crap a YZ airbox will fit too...more airflow helps that motor ALOT. Thought Id toss that out there. :banghead:

I have an 06 WR as well. Did you successfully remove the headlight and install a number plate? Will a standard 06 YZ number plate work? Also, did you remove anything else??

Lastly, let me know what success you have in relocating the speedo. Is is possible to leave on with a YZ numberplate? Also, pics would be cool!!! :thumbsup:

Thanks!

Does the aftermarket WR number plates not allow you to keep the odometer? You can get the aftermarket fender that works around the coolant bottle.
Look in Parts Unlimited. I think its around $50 for both. I don't remember what brand.

To get the fuel screw in, loosen the front and rear clamps on the carb, take off the rear carb rubber boot, then the carb will slide to the rear and out of the front carb boot. You can then rotate the carb to get access to the bottom of it to replace the fuel screw.

do you have any pics of this setup and what you did to remove all the WR components so the YZ plate works? I want to do this as well, but was hoping to see what it looks like beforehand. :thumbsup:

Does your bike have an oversized bar?
If not, you may want a new top clamp for adjustability.

I am not sure why you want to lose the headlight, but get rid of the odometer and put a trail tech on the bars instead. It has many modes and is easy to install.
