8 posts in this topic

Just got a top triple clamp for my wr The pro taper techs said a 04 YZ450 top clamp would work NOT!! and now they cant give me an answer on what will work.Does anyone know what will? maby a clamp from another bike that will cross over and work on my 04 WR450. Not worried if the top clamp wont bolt up the light and all that because all that crap is comming off.Turning my bike into a WZR450.Thats a WR450 on a diet

On the rear fender part: The Yamaha YZ fender will have to be cut out for the subframe overflow tank mounts. Aftermarket rear fenders already come cut out.

ya,starters gone. don't miss it at all with the rekluse :thumbsup: after i get my renton ti coil spring i'll be down to 246 wet w/out gas. after that there is no other way i can lighten(without sacrificing any protective devices) unless i go to the 05 swingarm and titanium fasteners,but thats a little over kill. i don't believe the swingarm swap is just a bolt on either:cry:
