I bought a Baja Designs baja kit for my 2000 YZ 426F and found that I now need a WR stator ($250+) a WR Flywheel ($250+) and a CDI unit ($not sure). Is there another route? I did contact a company with an external stator like Baja Designs used to sell. Any input would be appreciated.

All the above are reasons I stick to riding in the day..
I looked into the baha designs and then I thought even with the lights, riding in the sand dunes (which is where I ride, at night would just be too hard to judge and ride, all shadows too easy to fall off I was thinking) If it was flat then OK in fact that would be fantastic...

Is that for the WR426 stator/flywheel? Great prices!

Ive been on the dunes at night, in a Yamaha Rhino, and it is insane. Completely different than the day. Luckily, I wasnt driving and had a vet who knews the dunes like the back of his hand driving. It was crazy though.

WR flywheel and stator will be the cheapest way to go. You don't need to change out the CDI. I did the mod w/ keeping my YZ CDI and it worked just fine. You will have to float the ground though. There's lots of info about that if you do a search. Good Luck!

Hey all,

I had somewhat of a unique situation, but long story short I had a Baja Designs dual sport kit including external stator. I crashed (before I could find an appropriate skid plate) and the stator was severely damaged causing a huge oil leak. Since that stator costs $500, even Baja Designs suggested to go with something else for a repair!

I used the info in this thread...and especially the link to the Electrex site with directions for redirecting the ground...and I installed a 2001 WR Stator and flywheel on my 2002 YZ 426. It worked perfectly and it really was not very difficult. All turn signals and brake light work. headlight seems to have just about the same power as when Baja Designs system powered it. I highly recommend this conversion. Just make sure you have a buddy around to hold the tire while you torque the crankshaft bolt back on!

OH! Buy your parts from TT store. You will save nearly $100 from a dealer. 2001 and 2002 parts have slightly different part numbers, but both will fit any yz 426...2001 parts are cheaper!

Im having the same problem and I think the only solution is that I need a cdi box for a 2001 wr because the wr didn't come out until 2001. My mechanic said the yz has 4 coils goin to the engine and 2 to the electrical. The WR has 2 coils to the engine and 4 to the electrical. so unless there is a stater that will put out enough power for the electrical and compatible with the yz cdi box were kind of screwed.
