Hi,
I recently bought a clean, street legal WR400. It runs great, starts easy and is a good bike, but I noticed the fender was tweaked a little and the FMF Megamax has melted the numberplate on that side. This is the newest bike I've owned in forever, and the first one with a removable rear subframe.

So, I have a few questions.:applause:

How difficult is it to put things straight?:lol:

Is it better to disassemble, or can it be done on the bike?

To heat, or not to heat?

What is the best way to insure it is straight?:eek:

Mechanically, I don't expect it to be difficult, the devil is in the details.

What years and models will have a subframe that will work in addition to the standard year? Will the YZ/WR 426 models fits?

I believe up to 02. However, the YZ subframe will not have the tabs for the coolant recovery bottle
