It looks like a nice install but I think you just effectively and dramatically reduced the amount of CFM into your air box....

There's lots of guys here that have put YZ fenders on their 07' and newer WR's odd that it's such a mystery... Good luck, the bike looks good so far. What color plastics are you using?
seems like in my case it turned into a mess i posted that thread about the fender issue but dont seem to get any help. As i mentioned in there, i went to the dealer and bought a OEM fender for 06-08 yz250/yz450 thats what it says on the OEM yamaha genuine sticker. So i assumed 250 and 450 are same and wr 450 is differemt and only takes a 450 wr fender... id love to hear from some of the guys with 450WRs with YZ fenders and if they can confirm that the YZ450 is wider compared to the YZ250 ... or maybe yamaha did sell me a 250 fender but on the package it says 250/450 as a mistake.
i even double checked with them when i returned it. I do want to go back now and actually look at the actual bike to compare...

I will have a wr450 and a yz 450 rear fender off here in the next couple of days , I'm just waiting for my new rear wr fender to come in the mail .I've got a new white yz rear here now. Do you want me to snap some pics for you ?
yes if you dont mind. Im mostly interested of the measurement ofi the bolt mounts on the sides, because the "YZ450" fender that i got from yamaha the fender was about 1" narrower

I have the yz one here . The front two by the air cleaner are about 6 15/16 inches apart on their centers and the the two that come in from the sides are just under 6 1/2 apart . do you still want pics?
i believe the top holes are 7-8 inches apart on a WR... the dealers keep telling me one thing but i keep seeing another, they said subframe on 08-09 is different or something, compared to the older YZ but yet the YZ fender i had before are 06-08 and i know for a fact now that the YZ250 and 450 are same width... i meassured the 08s in person... so i dont see why the 07 WR450 is about an inch wider??? and i dont see how some people bolt up YZ fenders on the WRs unless they fabricate some sort of brackets? or they put YZ fenders on the older steel frame WRs???
i would love to see a 07+ WR450 with a YZ OEM fender.... someone show me that it can be done?
