How much are you thinking you will end up spending? The reason I ask is because (I know you dont want an off the shelf kit) there is a kit available that is the best I've seen out there from a company called sicass racing, with the all LED upgrade its about $430.00 but it is turn key......no wires to cut, everything plugs right in and is very easy to install. I have one on my 08 wr450 and it looks and works awesome!


Hey motomanny, can you post a photo of your ride please sir. I'd like to see how the sicass kit looks mounted up. TIA

That picture is exactly why I am going to use some rubber
cut down to bolt the license plate on. Probably either rubber
from a tire, or maybe one of those large heavy mud flaps
like seen on semis. I figure that will be stiff enough to hold
the tag, but flexible enough to move during a get off.

I'm gonna put mine on top of the rear section of the fender and more straight out. anything under gets killed. I've done this a few times already ...... the rear tire will grab whatever it can, trust me! one big jump and .....

I have seen the plate mounted inside the rear fender kind of at the back of the air box. It's not exactly legal but you wont knock it off, then again you wont see it once some mud finds it!

I am going to post pictures as soon as I can chip, I cant do it from this computer because I am at work and loading the picture sharing program will afford me a but chewing. My shift is 72 hours and I'm on the last 24 so once I'm home I will take some good day time shots and put them up.

IMHO this is the best plate mount you can buy...its small, light and out of the way...not to mention its cheap 36.94 bucks from oemcycle.com

Compared to the baja designs plate holder, it doesnt flop around :lol:

that my friend would be the new fender style of the 07+ WR's :lol:

and crashed...well i dont think anything is fool proof...i looped my XR and ripped the whole rear fender off (didnt loose the plate as i unbolted from the fender!)...so no matter how you bolt your plate on what good does it do if you loose the rear fender in a crash :worthy:

If you have this many questions about a fender design
that is now 3 years old, then you obviously do not have
the same addiction I do with ALWAYS looking at the new
bikes. Hence the reason for my latest 09 WR450F....:worthy:
Man I wish I wasnt this addicted....:lol:

I think being involved with the baja 1k sounds like a lot of
fun, and a lot of work all wrapped into one.
This year you will have to do it on your own bike though....:banghead:

I have found that nothuing lasts. Just get it together to pass the inspection. I have the B/D light/bracket on mine. It hasnt broken off yet, many crashes. I think its the only thing left from my d/s that still works.

Does anyone know if a WR450 will kick start if the battery is disconnected? I am assuming no since there is no circuit from the stator to the coil. I would like to put a key-triggered relay inline with the battery.
