YZ SHROUD graphics are close enuf that they will work on the WR and in most cases, you will notice nothing different except a slight mis alignment on one of the bolt holes.

The YZF rear fender will not work (easily) on the WR and the shrouds will not work with the WR stock tank BUT....Acerbis is making a WR set in white... everything but the headlight, you will need to paint that white if you want it.

Acerbis white rear fender - IMS tank with YZF shrouds -

I bought a set of YZ450 numberboards to use on my '07WR, it did require some cutting and patching even but it was dirt cheap and looks OK

Can you post some close up photos of the mirrors and how you mounted them?

thanks for the comments, I got the mirrors off ebay , shipped from HongKong in 6 days, , they're alloy with panoramic mirror glass, they're well made, don't vibrate and actually work unlike some wobblers I've tried, they bolt right on - just skip the bar ends included, MOTRAX sells these in UK for over 30.GBP, here is ebay link to get them for 23.USD shipped:

WR graphics are not as tall as the YZ.
But close.

If those are the "dual star" mirrors (they look like them) good luck, I have been trying to get some for months. The company's web site is still up but no one is home:banghead:

I guess my post wasn't clear , this mirrors in flesh look quality and to me look better than DUAL STAR offerings above, I was dubious to buy from Hong Kong but there was little money to risk really and it was well worth it, I got my LED indicators for silly money from there too and they're brilliant

I just bought a set of those Mirrors for $19.99 free shipping, Thx for the link. I was the only one to bid on em', there are a lot of them on that site. No need to "buy now" just bid $20 on the first ones to come up for auction.

I'm quite happy with the new mirrors. Free shipping took 15 days from Hong Kong, so that kind of sucked.

Of course i broke one of the mounts 5 seconds after i got em', bad move on my part, got a little hasty and over tightened it. Other then the weld marks from my tig-welder they look and perform great. It's good to actually have mirrors that function. Thx again KlossWR450.:thumbsup:
