Yup it's prettty easy.

I used an Acerbis YZF fender from an 04 YZF, I THINK years 03 - 05 from a YZF will fit an 05 WR from memory.

When you get the fender all you will need to do is drill out holes for the tubes to the coolant catch tank and a couple more holes to clear frame brackets.

The places to drill are clearly marked on the Acerbis fender and it slotted straight in. The rubber grommet that keeps the tubes in place on the original fender can be swapped to the new fender after drilling.

Looks cool as **** too!

Acerbis makes a yzf style fender for the wr that bolts on with no mods.I can see if i have the part number laying around somewhere.

I used a UFO YZ rear fender off a 2005 on my 2006. It had markings to cut out for the overflow tubes etc & I then fitted a Acerbis LED tail light & mini indicators directly to the fender near the back of the seat.

Works well & cuts the weight, just gotta work on my weight now.:thumbsup:
