If its the same puller for the YZF 06 and up, you can use the one for a CRF450, Ive had an 06 and 08 YZF and numerous CRF's, Ive used the CRF puller on all of them.
I wish you were right but unfortunately they are very different, I borrowed my buddy's for his 06' YZ450 and it no workee:prof: but you are right it's the same application for the CRF's...
The WR puller is 33mm diameter, the 06 & up YZ puller is much smaller.
The 07' WR puller will also work on YFZ quads and Gixers, neither of which I own:rolleyes:

You'd have to wonder why Yamaha would change such an insignificant detail. Is it just to piss their customer's off or what?
The WR has a heavier flywheel, it's part of what separates it from the YZ. When they went to the Al frame they also went to the external magneto so it changed in 07'... I'm cool with it now but when all my parts were out and the top of my motor was tore apart on a Sunday with out the right tool to put it back together... I was little upset
It's all good and the rest of the 07 - 08' owners here, if they read this post will know that they need a different puller than the YZ
