I am no electrician / electronics tech, but it don't sound right to me.
Call me an imbecile!

Try searching in both the WR4xx and YZ4xx forums using 'flywheel weight'... the advice you may get from the search may be the opposite of what you are looking for (i.e. info about putting a heavier weight on a YZ), but you will figure it out from reading...

i ride a WR so i may consider converting to YZ
just like you.

So I would imagine if you wanted to use a yz flywheel ( I have a spare) you would have to use the yz stator ( I have a spare one of those also).
If electrex can modify a wr stator to work with a yz cdi maybe they can modify a yz stator to work with the wr cdi. That is if any modification is necessary. Call Electrex. Im bettin that they would know the answer to your question.
Another thought. Maybe you can have your wr flywheel lightened by a machine shop. I have heard of this being done on other bikes like tt-r 90's.

I have tried both ignitions on the 400 with the wr cdi. They both work.
You will need a stator to match the rotor ie wr/wr, yz/yz.
Both plug into the wr cdi and work.

there is another option. DUAL curve CDI's they offer both yz and wr ignition curves which can be changed on the fly (while in motion) takes 10 mins to install no need to change rotor, stator or flywheel and have the best of both worlds, there are a few manufacturers vortex, wulf etc. im using an original vortex on my bike at the moment the new model has a 10 map selector switch and power/traction handlebar switch check em out at www.vortex-performance.com.au

have you or did you attempt to adjust the curves to suit your modifications.eg wr curve works best with wr mods, yz with yz mods, another curve for another mod.would you change heads pistons inlet exhaust etc on a high performance car engine without re-setting your distributor advance to suit the mods?
