Am I correct here ....pls inform
that the 2001 wr250f stator and flywheel
is the same item
as the 20001 wr426f stator and flywheel

and that I can slap them on my 2001 yz426f
without problems so I can get some
decent power for lighting

I may be wrong but from what I can tell they
are the same parts

Thanks in advance

It will not work. YZ and WR cranks are different. It is a pain in the butt to get good lights on a YZ.

That is true of the 450's, but not the 426/400. The WR426 flywheel is a physical bolt-on to a YZ426 when a WR stator is used. That was not the question, in any case.

the parts numbers are the same
for the wr250f and wr426f for 2001
I think it does fit

They are, in fact, the same. I have both a 250 and 426 in the garage, and, while floating the grounds on both, comparre them as well as the part numbers.

Birdy, what do you mean by "floating the grounds"?
