05 WR 450 with YZ number plate

7 posts in this topic

Anyone take off their stock headlight and put on a number plate? I hit a tree and broke my light and have decided on a helmet light so I can use it on all my toys and would like to go with a number plate but also keep my trip meter.

I have a YZ number plate on my '05, but I'm not using the stock odo. I'm using a trail tech computer and had to modify a bracket to connect to the YZ number plate. I might have some detailed pictures somewhere, but I have to look if you want to see it.

Its looking like I will need to take off the ODO, will it detach in a way I can reassemble it easily?

On my 2004 i did the same thing by hittings a tree. I ended up using a cycra stadium plate. I took a piece of aluminum stock and tapped both ends. I put a stud in one end to mount to the od and the other end went against the number plate. The bottom of the plate just zip tys to the fork leg.
