Is there an advantage of using the `00-`01 number plate and fender?

I think the '00 number plate is a little more square, maybe a little bigger area for numbers. I think it looks a little better than the older version.

I was refering to the mounting of the YZ number plate not the headlight. I've got the 'oo triple clamp too and switch back and forth between the headlight and YZ number plate.

you can use the small headlight bracket that goes on the triple clamp (the one with 3 holes ) to mount the YZ number plate.
Fix it to the triple clamp using one of the holes in the bracket, then using an adjacent hole, mount an 8mm bolt on the bracket and use it as as post/stud to fix your number plate. The bolt has to be about 40-50mm long.
Hope this doesnt sound confusing, as it's very easy to do

Unless you can get OEM cheaper, I'd personally recommend going with Acerbis replacement plastic. The quality is absolutely top notch. And, you may find a variety of colours that WILL set your bike apart from all the other Yamahas.
No, I do not work for Acerbis. I work at a nuclear power plant .

Take ONE of the small headlight mounting brackets (the ones that have 3 holes in). You will find these on either side of your triple clamp.
Mount an 8mm nut and bolt of about 40-50mm long onto the bracket using one of the un-threaded holes. You should now have a small bracket, with an 8mm bolt sticking out of it.
Next...using the other un-threaded hole,in the bracket, mount the bracket onto the middle hole in the triple clamp (the threaded hole meant for the top fixing on the YZ number plate), with the 8mm bolt facing upwards.
This should now give you an 8mm stud, that is offset the correct ammount to fix your YZ number plate to.
I used a UFO brand plate.
