Plastics interchange between '04 & '05?

10 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I have an '04 WR450 I just picked up. It needs new plastics and I'm looking at buying a Acerbis kit thru RockyMountainATV, but they're out of stock of '04 plastics and won't have more for another 2+ weeks. I could wait, but why? They do have plastics for an '05, will they fit?

Also, will the '05 radiator shrouds work with an Acerbis 3.3 gallon tank? I think they should, but I'm not sure. Any help would be great.

It should work. I believe the front and rear fenders are the same as the '04. The '05\'06 WR uses YZ shrouds from the factory so they should fit the Acerbis tank. 03\04 shrouds were wr specific.

Awesome, thanks much for the quick answer! Off to order plastic!

I was thinking the 03-04 acerbis tank used the 03-04 shrouds... I may be wrong but I thought I saw that somewhere while checking out tanks once. The other aftermarket tanks do use the 05-06 shrouds.

You might be right, but already ordered my plastics kit. We will see, if I have to order a 2nd set of shrouds for an '03/04 if I have to.

Since I'm asking... Anyone know if the newer headlight from an '07-09 bike will bolt onto an '04? Headlight plug the same too?

The 05/06 plastic comes with yz shrouds. Only the 03/04 came with wr specific shrouds.

Just stock for stock, the 03/04 is the same plastics. The 05/06 is the next set of plastics, but the 04 is not the same as the 05.

I think the front and rear fenders along with the number plates are the same, but not the shrouds.

They look pretty close when you look at them side by side, but when you take a closer look, they are different.

Learned this the hard way with graphics.
