Fitting a YZ Fender to a 2006 WR
Posted July 16, 2009 - 02:51 AM
I ask because on some bikes the weight of the light can make the fender bend on hitting a big bump and the number-plate/light unit gets eaten by the tyre.
Not a pretty site.
The YZ fender seems quite strong but definitely not as rigid as the WR original.
Is it likely to bend, do I need to fit a reinforcing strut of some kind?
Thanks as always for your feedback…

i did have the baja designs led brakelight and license plate holder...it basically hung below the tip of the fender.....after awhile it seemed to droop a little and would shake at lower rpms'.
so i fabbed up an r1 light to fit and stuck the plate up against the back of the airbox. works great!

So some holes had to be cut in the new one
And some heatproof tape added where it goes over the top of the silencer:
Once fitted it was fairly rigid but not as firm as the original so I added a strut:
Not pretty but its completely hidden under the mudguard
And now I’m happy!
