Light Switch

I purchased my 04 WR 450 used, so don't ride me for this one.....

Is the WR supposed to have a light switch or not? Does it depend on the year?

My headlight is on all the time - is this an issue or how it is supposed to be?

Where would it plug in if it had a switch at one point?

I took my headlight off (avatar), and there is just a simple plug on the backside that comes right out. a switch does not come standard on any WR. But you can certainly purchase one. Ask cgun, he's got one i believe.

Not true,

All the earlier WR's had light switches.

I am not sure when they stopped including them, but my 01' certainly came with and has one.

Apologies, I didnt clarify. I was referring solely to the newer WR's. my mistake.

I found a site that sells "replica" switches. It states that it is a replica of the WR 250, 426, 450 ('01-'03) switch.....I guess '04 was the first year withough one.

What would be the point of removing the switch?

To save a couple bucks and a few grams of weight.

Hey punisher660 , what's the website that has those replica switches?

I purchased a yamaha switch for $6 at my local dealer.
