Have 2 09 YZ 450's. Has anyone installed a wr airbox in a yz? The side access was so much easier when I had a wr. The other advantage would be the routing of the breather hose.

Anyone????
Gray, is this even possible?
Once you have changed air cleaners on a WR, the YZ is a major pain in the butt.
Don't know why Yamaha didn't use this style on the Yz's.
The other advantage would be the routing of the breather hose. The WR has the hose routed to the air box boot. This would cure the possibble but rare ocassion of sucking in water and dirt.

I know about the left number plate, but didn't
think the subframe would be different. I'm sure Gray will know.

There you are, there. What's so tough about changing a YZ air filter, exactly?

you have to get a wrench, and take off the bolts, and move the seat....

i can see about better protection against water though

It's not overly difficult but it's old school. The side access is the way you should have changed an air filter many years ago. When I bought my KTM 300 in 05 I thought "finally". My 07 WR 450 also was a brease with the side access air filter.
The same way I felt when Canondale reversed the intake and exhaust. Now Yamaha with the 10 model. Finally! I was
waiting for this design for years.
It's all about inovation and simplicity.
