im looking for a graphic kit for my 2009 wr450 and the only one i can find is on effex and it says for wr450 05-06. was wondering how different the plastics were and would it fit. I can't seem to find 09 graphic kits anywhere, think it'l fit?

the plastics did change. If they list them for a 05-06, then chances are it's for a steel framed bike, which has a completely different style of shroud. Yours should pretty much fully cover the fuel tank, where-as the 05-06 shrouds only protrude from the front of the tank extending over the radiators. So, unfortunately I don't believe they'll work for you.
