  • yz plastics

    hey all

    does any one in psb world own a yz450 05?

    im building an smr out of an 03 WR 450 and want to buy black plastics for it, unfortunately theyre only available in the above model

    i know theyre quite similar so i am hoping i can bring my plastics over to compare size and fitting, supposedly it can be done but i dont want to outlay the $200+ only then to find out they dont

    cheers ric

    one other thing if youve got a smr wr did u stick with stock gearing or did u change it, if so to what? NB this will be a streeter probably wont see much track time

    have recently changed my gearing on my 07 wr450 from stock 50r to 42R which has lowered the cruising rpm to a more acceptable level.
    I have also spaced the sprockets to stop tyre rub. its an on going project as I'm not quite happy with it yet.

        You sure they are similar... The tank and shrouds are totally different. The rest I'm unsure but it is a steel frame on yours the alloy on the m/x

          from what ive found so far the alloy frame is an 07 model whether thats 06/07 or 07/08 i dont know but the 05 is definitely steel frame

          [MENTION=25836]Billy[/MENTION] cheers for the gearing advice
