2007 WR450F New Owner Help
Posted January 26, 2008 - 08:28 AM
I must say thanks all who post and reply. You have helped me make a good informed decision: I purchased the 2007 WR450F instead of a CRF450X.
My friend rides the Honda, and it's a nice bike, but after riding them both and putting them next to one another, I chose the Yamaha due to it's build quality, looks, smoother power, and the little extras that come stock (wave rotors, big bars, and foot pegs). It sure looks nice in my garage.
I had the AIS kit installed by the dealer included in my purchase price. I won't be doing any performance mods until I get used to the power (I'm comming off of a 2005 TTR250, these are not even on the same planet).
I would like to purchase a plastic front disc cover (white or blue), also some Acerbis type hand guards with the alum bar inside. I'm not sure of the style of mounting (triple or bar). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry if these are repeat questions, I tried to search but couldn't find what I was looking for.
Thanks for your help!!

The spider is not available for the WR's at this point, it shows part numbers for the yz's only. Anyone else know different?
Does anyone have pics of handguards on the 2007 WR450?
Thanks again for you help.

Thanks WRC. What did you do with the bar pad? Does it fit with some trimming?
Anyone have some product hints for removing the sticker residue left on the plastics and swingarm after removal of those hideous dealer advertising stickers? I tried Goo Gone and Krud Cutter, they both worked okay on the plastic with a lot of rubbing, but I don't want to polish my swing arm.
Thanks for your help.

Thanks SXP. That's exactly what I'm looking for. Looks real nice and protected. You mentioned you 2nd the CYCRA hand guards. Do you have them installed on your 07 WR? If so, I would love to see a picture if you get a chance. Did you alter your bar pad?
Thanks for your help guys.

I ditched the bar pad. Here are a couple of pics I had taken for some other reason, but you should get the picture.
