I am fortunate with a double door walkout basement to keep my baby in one of my spare basement rooms when it is cold, or I want to do some wrenching. I rolled it out of the room for the pictures.

To answer the question on the fender above. I am not sure this is a YZ fender. Is their a way I can tell? I will look for you if you tell me what to look for? I purchased the bike new, and purchased the Q4 pipe, AIS removal, skid plate, Accerbis hand guards, and the baja-kit at the same time. They did all the free mods, greasing, new air intake setup, JD jetting, and installation for $350; which was a good deal considering I got the bike for over a grand under asking price. She roared out of the dealer. The dealer had a WR250 on the show-room floor with the baja kit and this signal placement. Frankly, I do not really like where the rear turn signals are placed, but if they went to the rear, they would have melted with the Q4 exhaust blowing on it (I saw I bike it a prior post that had a flasher in front of the exhaust).

After riding this bike and laying it down several times performing (or attempting) various feats, I have come to really like the placement of the rear blinkers. They have never bent, or been touched. I have layed this bike down at least a couple dozen times (most of the time going up or down rocky hills). Now that I say all this, I will probably break one next time I go down (knock on wood!). I installed the Unabiker radiator guards and the IronMan sprockets. The radiator guards have saved me many times in the rocks.

I will bring her back into the basement this winter and grease her up. I am thinking of installing a zipty and accelerator pump for the heck of it. Don't know why because it runs perfect, so I may not, just a thought. But I like the thought of adjustment in case I go somewhere well below my current elevation.

On closer inspection of the 3rd pic it is a WR fender (note the blue "pocket" for the CDI behind the coolant reservoir). I don't believe the YZ fenders have that.

They were on the bike when I bought it. They are by Factory Effex.

SXP-
Nice ride! Did you go with a 426 rod when you did the 444 conversion? Also, what kind of tank is that and how much does it hold? Looks a bit cleaner and lower than my IMS 3.4 gal.

Thanks for the info...
Birdy

I shipped the stock crank off to Eric Gorr and he rebuilt it with a rod with a larger small end - can't remember what brand. But, that was a couple of years ago and I don't believe he rebuilds cranks anymore as he sold his crank rebuilding equipment.

The tank is a 3.2G Clarke.

Does any one know where I can get a license plate holder/bracket for a 2007 WR450F? I see a couple pix with holders but none on the 07 WR450? Would be ever gratefully for the direction.

I see your 07 WR450 has a license plate holder. I would love to know where you got it and can you buy just the holder, alone.

Thanks,
Mike

I was checking my bike out last night and found the tail light not working, but the brake light worked. I found a wire broken on the tail light socket. It was the original Electrex tail light. So I had to order one of these LED tail lights last night. I should have it tomorrow. :prof:

I have that one and the only bad thing I would say is mud has found it's way into the LED's. I think it got through where the wire penetrates and it's not easy to clean out. Maybe add some silicon

This is the one I use. It is definitely very durable. I know that for a fact :bonk:

But it is not very bright at all. If you are at all concerned about being seen, from behind, don't use this one.
