Fitting a YZ Fender to a 2006 WR

4 posts in this topic

It all fits and is ready to bolt up, but was wondering who has done this and is running a light/plate holder on it?

I ask because on some bikes the weight of the light can make the fender bend on hitting a big bump and the number-plate/light unit gets eaten by the tyre.

Not a pretty site.

The YZ fender seems quite strong but definitely not as rigid as the WR original.

Is it likely to bend, do I need to fit a reinforcing strut of some kind?

Thanks as always for your feedback…

03-05 yz fenders fit with some trimming(no big deal)

i did have the baja designs led brakelight and license plate holder...it basically hung below the tip of the fender.....after awhile it seemed to droop a little and would shake at lower rpms'.

so i fabbed up an r1 light to fit and stuck the plate up against the back of the airbox. works great!

I fitted the YZ fender – it all went on easily but the YZ does not have a water bottle and associated pipes:

So some holes had to be cut in the new one

And some heatproof tape added where it goes over the top of the silencer:

Once fitted it was fairly rigid but not as firm as the original so I added a strut:

Not pretty but its completely hidden under the mudguard

And now I’m happy!
