I am in the process of getting my 03 WR450F street tard and had some questions about the plastics. I know you can put a YZ rear fender on the WR, but is there any difference in the radiator shroud plastics on the WR and YZ. I know the tanks as slightly different, Will the YZ shrouds go on the WR tank? And will a YZ tank go on a WR? I kind of like the look of the smaller YZ tank.

I dont think they would fit. But i would check the yamaha website for parts and diagrams that will probably give you your answer.

A YZ tank will fit a WR but I needed to go with a YZ seat and shrouds on my 01 WR. It should be about the same for the 03s and up

yep...yz tank and shrouds go together, wr tank and shrouds go together...no swapping unless you do them both. I believe the seat is fine on 03+ but don't quote me on that one.

I just did that mode on my '03 WR450F. I bought a YZF tank that fits perfectly. The shrouds must be also from a YZF. The WRF shrouds won't fit the YZF tank.

You also have to buy a YZF seat because the WRF seat it shorter and it will not fit on the YZF tank.

Kind of expensive mod but i love the final look and slimmer feeling!

Well here you can see the YZF tank. The thing is that i haven't completed the bike yet because i am waiting for carbon fiber shrouds to arrive. I believe in a couple of days it will be ready and i will post complete pics. (and yes i have changed the blue fenders with black ones!):bike:

The only plastics that are WR are the side panels, correct? I can't wait to see the bike as I'm thinking about blacking mine out this winter or doing a Hurricane replica.

Even the side panels are from YZF!
I had the same dilema between all black/Hurricane replica...but i went with black option. Hope it will look good!

Does anyone know anything about the 06s. The WR has steel frame while the YZ has the aluminum. Will the 05 plastic fit the 06 WR? I think the frames are the same for 05 YZ, WR, and 06 WR.

05 YZF plastics will fit the 06 WR. But you will need the tank and seat for sure when switching between a yzf and a wrf setup. The shrouds for 05yzf to 06 wr are interchangeable.
