Just realized your from UK, and said "Speedo", meaning your bike probably actually has a speedo, unlike mine, which just had a trip meter....making everything I originally had typed here pointless.....

You want a speedo drive? By me the bypass for the speedo drive, and you can have mine off my WR400. I imagine the front axle and wheel are the same.
If you simply want to dump the trip meter, and the cable (I did and went with a hour meter), you can without a actual "bypass".
I simply tossed the cable, but kept the furled "nut" (it's not a nut, but you know what I mean) that screws onto the drive on the hub, plugged the open end (where the cable used to come through) with epoxy (careful not to get any on the threads), and screw it back on the drive. Viola, instant plug.
Tossed the sh*tty trip meter and mounted a nice little hour meter from Yamaha to the trip meter mount instead.

As far as the eliminator goes, I think that the YZ uses the same wheel and they have a spacer instead of the speedo gear. Check with your dealer.

Otherwise the wheels are the same and the yz and wr spacers are interchangeable. The speedo drives appear to be the same in the parts catalog up to '06. The brake rotor changed in '03 and up, and is thicker with a larger diameter.
