Lightspeed has one for an '07 WR450 that might fit. It's a CF glide plate/case protector combo the extends from the top of the stock glide plate. covers the front of the frame, and the front of both cases. I'm not sure why it wouldn't fit a YZ, but it isn't listed for one.

In the event it doesn't, they do list individual glide plates and case guards.

Location of the mounting tabs/nuts on the frame are different between the YZ and WR. Compare the pic above to the pics below:

That makes sense. That wasn't evident from the other picture I saw of it. :banghead:

But, Lightspeed is listing one for the YZ now, too.

Definately try the Hyde Racing skid plate, I have one on my 07 and love it, dosent add to the engine noise either. Made out of resin plastic like the ktm hard parts. Have one on my 250 for 2 years now and holding up really good.

If the Hyde is made at of the same material as the KTM hard parts one, than what is the difference between them?
