'07 WR 450 - Plastics Compatibility?
Posted October 30, 2007 - 04:04 PM
Does anyone know what the plastics compatibility is between Yamaha's? Can I run YZ rear fender, etc?
The reason I ask is because I'm looking for the Yamaha retro plastics (Yellow/Blk/Wht) and haven't found them for the WR...

My search didn't return any relevant preexisting threads...
Actually, there's quite a few threads addressing this issue, including a portion of the WR FAQ, it's just a matter of learning how to phrase things properly. It takes time to learn the nuances...
The YZ rear fender will fit, though you may need to do a little bit of tweaking, but not much. The shrouds won't without a tank change, and the side panels will have issues due to the airbox access. Since the '07+ are such a new generation, not much has been posted regarding the specifics of swapping the body pieces, except for the rear fender. Be a hero, buy the stuff and let us know. If it looks like it won't work without major modifications, send the stuff back before you take a hacksaw to it. What's the worst that can happen? You may be out a few bucks for a week or so until you can get your refund if it doesn't work out, or it works and you're in business. If you didn't want to spend money on your bike, then your first mistake was starting to read the stuff on this board ...SC
