Check out the finished product. I have always liked the yellow graphics and when I saw the new 50th anniversary edition YZ I almost bought one but then I decided to save my $ and convert the trusty WR.

Actually it is a kit from One Industries that is made for the YZ426. I had to find a yz tank and seat and the rest was history.

Yes, it is a 2002 WR426. I did not powder coat the frame yet. All I did for the time being is tape everything up and paint the frame where it is visible. Next winter I will strip it down and have it powder coated.

It turned out exactly how I was hoping.

I paid $179 for the graphics kit which comes with the plastic fenders, number plate (not using) rad shrouds and seat cover. I paid $69 for the head light assy and $35 for the LED tail light. $40 for the new side cover number plates and I got the YZ tank and seat from a fellow TTer for $130. I painted the blue tank yellow with some plastic paint which next winter I will probably go ahead and buy a yellow tank but it was not in the budget this year. If I were to total it all up with shipping it was around $500. Small price to pay for such a great improvement. No more white crease marks on the plastic either.

WOW, that is the best looking WR I have ever seen. I want to do that so bad to my 04 WR450 but am regreting tearing it all down just to paint the frame black. Great job there!

Looks great, you need some new fork guards with the retro (hurricane) graphic's on them. Would really finish her off.

Where did you get your LED T/L ?
