hey guys, my local shop ordered me yz450 side panels instead of wr450 ones. The airbox side is different and now i'm stuck with my 60$ preprinted numbers on my new side panels that don't fit. Has anyone drilled a hole into the airbox cover and made the yz panles work on the wr and do you have any pics? Any help would be GREAT!!! :)

Why did you put $60 in backgrounds on the wrong panels? Why did you even accept the wrong side panels? :D :)
I'd heat them up, and try to peel them off carefully and put them back on the backing they came on, then order the right panels and take the wrong ones back.

I put the right hand side panel on without problem. The left side should be returned IMO.

the right ide is on like yours but like i said the left side is going to need some work. This sucks, thats like $110 worth of plastic and stickers that don't work. I guess i sould have go the bike before i bought the parts.

That's weird. I got the right side panel for like $17 CDN and that's like $10 USD. :)
