Converting my 99 WR400 to YZ450F body Kit - Project in Progress
Posted June 09, 2011 - 11:01 AM
He's giving me all this for 200.00 : full plastics kit in good shape with all bolts and hardware, sub frame, air box, aftermarket oversize blue yz tank (still not sure if it's clarke or IMS), and the complete seat.
I know this conversion IS possible but will require SOME modification. Anyone who's gone down this road care to offer a brother some helpful insight and warnings about which problem areas with fitting to address first?
I'll update this thread after I get all the goods next week and begin the tear down/rebuild process. (I've seen a lot of threads on here about Wr-YZ conversions with many years but very few pictures come of it.)

Thanks for the info man! I have read many posts in the YZ and WR forum indicating the areas you mentioned but not specifically for my WR400 to the '03 YZ450 components, so... I appreciate the rundown. It sounds like you've done this mod yourself? got any pics?
I won't have my parts until next week so I'll upload some photos to help others out. Like I said I've seen LOTS of posts about this idea for various years of conversion but FEW pics of before, during, and after shots. My goal is to make it the thread finally gives visuals.
