I want to replace my plastics with new ones. I have browsed through Thumpertalk, and yamaha-motor.com, but they only seem to be selling the plastics in pices, i.e. they don't have a "discount deal" if you buy all of them at once.

Thus the question. Where on the WWW can I buy a complete plastic kit for my WR450? - As I know people that are travelling a lot it doesn't matter if they would be delivered in the US, Australia or Europe. I (and my Yamaha) live in Iceland.

Acerbis at http://www.acerbis.it/ sells everything you need, including a rear fender with a tail light mounting holes. The "complete" plastic kit comes with radiator shrouds, side number panels and a YZ rear fender. You do have to buy the WR style fender separately and use your existing tail light assembly, however. The headlight plastic is available from Yamaha and it is very cheap, $10+/-. Acerbis is very high quality and looks exactly like factory plastic. Polisport http://www.polisport.com/ is another option, European company also. They do not have an exact WR style rear fender available.

Thanks. I have been looking at those options and I'll probably buy an Acerbics plastic kit off Ebay for 100 $
Then I need a graphics kit, I want the original look, thus it seems like I have to buy that from Yamaha. That will cost me more than 100 $
And then there is the rear fender (25 $) + the headlight plastic. I have found those for example on http://www.motorcyclemall.com - an authorized Yamaha dealer. Note, they sell the headlight plastic for 40 US $, not 10 $ as you expected. (Do you know of a cheaper option).

So, complete plastics with original looking stickers will cost me close to 300 $ - shipping + customs not included.

Try these guys for your Yamaha parts

Good shipping deals for me here in Canada but if you know people travelling through the US thats going to be your cheapest option.
