I haven't done it but I have seen it a few times. It should in theory be pretty easy. The little pins on the bottom triple clamp that the headlight shroud fits onto work the same way with the number plate. I think that it's just a matter of taking off the headlight and disconnecting it. I bet it takes about fifteen minutes.

I do it.... the holes on the bottom of the plate do mount up with the pins on the lower fork clamp... for the upper mount you will either need to fab up a bracket that will line up with the YZ plate mounting tab to bolt it on or, like I do, use two long zip ties and run them thru the tab on the plate and then back around the tripple clamp, (under the bars)... the other thing you will need to do is figure out a way to mount the ingition switch as it is mounted to the upper headlight bracket (07' +).

I had pics at one time but cannot find them right now, if I do I will post. I think the zip ties work great:thumbsup:

Thanks hoople!

Thats not gonna work for me though. The main reason why I asked was not because I prefer the MX # look (I'm indifferent), but because I'd make the transition to white plastics possible w/o replacing or painting the headlight shroud.

I did it on my 250f after a friend did it on his 450f.

I used the bottom bracket, then used zip ties for the top. didn't move anything and the computer was well protected. took about 5 minutes, and I cut the center triple tree mount off so it would go over the computer

I don't know... I took that off too but I do have a friend that runs a #plate with the odod/endurometer still on so it's possible for shure:thumbsup:

Your right, it's the easiest way right now to transition to white right now:prof:
