Aren't 05's and 06's the steel frame. I found this used skid plate for sale http://www.powerpart...skid-plate.aspx It says it will fit 06-09's, but I thought the 05's and 06's were the same. I am wondering if the skid plate would fit my 05.

Well it looks like i misread and this is actually for a YZ. YZ's have an aluminum frame in 06, and WR's in 07. Correct me if im wrong, but the plate will not fit.

Yeah. thats right, YZ 06 and the next models have the aluminium frame. instead WR's which use the aluminium on 07' 08' 09' models. probably the skid plate will not fit on your bike.
