Mounting a WR headlight on a YZ
Posted September 18, 2010 - 05:25 PM
I can buy the assembly for about 200$ and according to the fiche it looks like there are a couple of mounting bolts on the lower clamp.
Is there enough room to drill and tap my existing lower clamp or does the WR use a special clamp?
Is there anything else that I should be aware of?
I appreciate your help, hopefully I can have the information I need by monday in which I will order the assembly.

Some simply bolt on, some slide into holes and bolt on to brackets on the top.

WR 250 / 450 Headlight Assembly
My WR (02 426F) has 2 holes next to the forks, the outer two in this photo (sorry, it is a little blurry)
The braket is shown installed in this shot.
Have you considered putting a WR Triple clamp on your YZ? With some checking I assume you could confirm it would work, and would have the mounting screws. On my year I believe they have the same size tubes. Assuming everything else would work, you may have to run a WR fender, but I bet they are interchangeable.
Here is an 06 WR450F Triple on Ebay for about 55.00.

The triple is obviously different on the WR than the YZ for the headlight mount. I think I'll just go with a UFO light or something that straps to the forks... Problem is now though is that my ECU is on the steering stem right in the front of the bike, I have no idea how deep these lights run into the forks... There are pics of the issue here;
