using YZF plastics on a WR426?
Posted July 07, 2008 - 08:22 PM
I have a 2001 WR426F, i want to buy new plastics but i can only found black in the YZF plastics.
I want a mx rear fender, and i want to continue to run my stock tank for the extra capacity.
I just need to know which side panels, radiator shrouds, and fenders will fit.

YZF fenders (front and back) fit fine - trim rear as needed.
A neighbour just bought a WR250 and he got some YZ125 2 stroke plastics given to him from a friend - fenders are a direct bolt on as well.
I believe the left side plate may be a bit fatter on the WR, but do not know for sure - maybe look at pictures that were taken from the back and compare.

With the stock WR tank?
And has anyone ever just trimmed their left sidepanel to fit with the catch can?

As far as I have read all 98-02 yz & wr 400 & 426 use the same shrouds as far as bolt up.
98-99 400 shrouds are different than 00-02 426 shrouds. That's the angle of the radiator tab mounting thingie. All else is the same.
Yes, I have trimmed a YZ side panel to clear the catch tank hoses. The trim lines are molded into both the Acerbis and Polysport panels...just cut on the dotted lines.

I got my '01 WR with the stock plastics and i replaced it with all new YZf plastics from UFO and a new Clarke YZf tank.
