Is this the YZ450 Camshaft part number for my bike?

I have a 2006 WR450F and want more power for sand driving, I was told i can just put in a YZ exhaust cam, I went online to yamaha and got this number off an 05 YZ450, can someone verify this is the proper one I need for my bike, and will it swap out using my WR timing spec?

5TA-12180-00-00

That is the correct location but the Yamaha USA site lists 5TA-12180-10-00....maybe for USA only? :ride:

the 06 yz number has the 10 and the 05 model has 00 in the part number, what is the difference and which one should I USE?

Get the '05 YZ cam as too many things changed in '06...SC

Sorry Off-Topic.

Assuming that you are riding a WR using a YZ cam with yz timing. Does the timing chain wears off faster than it should be? :applause:

Thats why i was thinking of going with the 05 one, Just want to make it is all good, Has anyone here put an 05 YZ 450 exhaust cam on their 06 WR450??? so i know forsure it will all be good?

No. The WR uses the same chain as the YZ, and all the sprockets are the same pitch.
