I would like to put all white plastic on my 07 WR 450, to make it look like the white YZ 450F. I figure I will need the following: front fender, radiator shrouds, rear fender and front number plate or headlight assembly.

I would also like to use a complete seat assembly, like the SDG complete tall seat.

Will the YZ plastic and seat for a 07 or newer YZ 450 work on my 2007 WR 450?

Has anyone done this?

Is there a complete seat assembly available for the 07 WR 450?

I really like the look of the white 07-08 YZ and think it would look even better on my WR.

Any info will be appreciated.

on a stock 07 wr450 the only pieces of plastic from a yz that will bolt right on is the front fender and the left lower fork guard . you can buy almost if not all the parts for a wr in white . I'm not sure about the headlight , have not seen a white stock shell .The yz rad shouds will fit if you use ether a yz tank or an ims tank.

I got YZ shrouds to fit, but one of the mounts under seat wasn't perfect. Looked pretty good though.

Acerbis do a all rubber black seat (X seat) bolts straight on.

You can buy the complete GYTR kit here in NZ (so I assume you can get it in the US). It comes with the rad shrouds, guards, headlight surround, bar pad, decals and seat cover. See this (now finished) local auction:

Ask your dealer.
