Does anyone know if the 2006 yz450 plastics will fit the 2002 yz426 ??????? Found some awesome graphics but only for 450f.

You can make it work, but it is not a direct bolt on. There are a few posts and a sticky that address this issue.

But I believe that you have to use all of the 450 plastics to include the tank and seat when doing the swap.

'Fraid not. The '03-'05 stuff can be adapted, but even that is a piece of work. Check Common Threads.

The '06 shrouds will only go on an '06+ tank, which won't even come close to fitting an '02, unless you go with an '06 frame, but then.....
