2015 yz-f plastics fit on the fi wr450f

9 posts in this topic

I'm not sure how you can look at both bikes and think this would work.

 

Maybe it's just me, but can't you tell by looking that these bikes have NOTHING in common?

The WR450 plastics are from the YZ250F, though I don't think much (if anything) is directly interchangeable aside from the fender.

No, they are from the WR450F, which uses a few frame spars from the 250F, and nothing else.

 

There is this new thing called Google, and several dozen platics manuf that can tell you what fits and on what bike, in about 45 seconds.

 

Yes, I am being condisending and a bit of a jerk........maybe some brain cells will come alive out there.

"From" as in, derived from, but not identical to, which I pointed out. Fenders swap, that's about it AFAIK. The WR frame isn't just 'a few spars' of the YZF frame, it pretty much is the YZF frame modded to fit the 450 motor. Even the original bolt holes for the YZF subframe are still there, though not used on the WR.

Rad shrouds share a part number.  The side number plates look similar but I don't think they fit cause of the different subframe.

The rear lower spars are shared with a new welded lower subframe bracket

The upper spars are shared with ALL new welded structures.

The cast spar that joins the to the head is not shared.

All the non-cast parts are not shared.

It is not a 'modified 250f' frame, it's a different frame.  You read the brochure propaganda, and believed it.

You cannot put a motor that weighs 35lbs more and 40% more power and use the same frame ' modified to fit the 450 motor'. Not unless you want it to flex like a KTM you can't.

The 2013 250f shrouds have the same part number, but no other year....

Nothing on the reverse motor bikes share with the WR's as there are nearly no common parts of merit.

 

Put the bikes side by side, and see for yourself.
