I guess these look ok... but I really like the bikes that look well used. You know, scratched plastic with scuffs on the engine cases. The cockpit should look clean, but real bikes need a few dents in the rim.

I'm usually too busy replacing broken parts to worry about replacing the ugly ones.

yeah but you wouldn't buy one like that off the showroom floor for new price would you?:thumbsup:...lol.

Does anyone know where one can get white plastics & a grey black seat cover, (YZ colour scheme) for an 07 WR450?

I note that Yammie have taken a cue from ol' Henry Ford; "You can have any colour you want, as long as it's black" ... 'cept here it's blue :thumbsup:

I believe the radiator shrouds are different on the YZ450 :ride: , else I would have made the changes already!

My 07 WR450 is street legal, (except it's rubber :thumbsup:), so the move won't be neccessary :ride: however I do want them plastics!

I wonder if those kits will be available for sale from the Australian dealers, that would be a nice opportunity to switch colors on my bike.

I see that IMS only make a 3.4 gal. tank for the 02-06 YZ250/400/426 ... and only natural or blue :thumbsup:

Does anyone make a black or white one for the 07 WR450?

Perhaps a dumb question, but...the '06+ YZ rear fender doesn't fit the '07+ WRs??

The real challenge is the headlight cowl. I would love to see some of the Australian white ones show up on Ebay, or be imported into the States.

Polisport supposedly has the 07' - 08' WR rear fender in Blu, White and Black... I just asked my parts guy to order me one in white but have not heard back from him yet.

Good luck with that head light cowl, I have been searching for a white one for a long time now. Even that Aus White Lightning Kit looks like it has a different headlight:excuseme:

Anyone had any luck with the so-called plastic paints holding up to off raod abuse?

So I sent the link to the Polisport white rear fender to our race team manager / parts guru and he said that the website is only good in Europe and his Polisport distributors in the US could not get it so he started checking with his "people".... Acerbis has one :rant: Just released apparently, still not on their website... he ordered 5 and they will be in his shop in a week and a half. I don't know how many guys on our team want to white out their WR but if you want one and can't get one thru Acerbis yourself, PM me and I can put you in contact with my sponsor.... I am sure they will ship as needed.:thumbsup:

Still no luck on the white headlight cowl :ride: I run a YZ #plate but would really love to have that white headlight cowl with the red back grounds and #'s, pull the headlight out of it and race it, that way everyone would know they just had their doors blown off by a WR :lol:
