yz400f or wr400f???

Can i with engine or frame codes somehow find out what modeli have- yz or wr??? Previous owner said one thing, but reading obout specifications is another thing... Maybe anybody can help me???


If I'm not mistaken, the wr has a kickstand! Someone may correct me though!

The wr also has a headlight and taillight! I'm 99% positive on my two responses! Hope I helped!

post some pics

I have headlights, and all wireing for taillights and turn indicators... Also the rim is the

18", like on wr specifications, but in papers the bike is YZ400F...

Is there headlight for yz models???

There is my Yamaha:

The yz has no lights, nor a charging system! I'd say u have a wr, the yz, I believe, is a straight up motocross bike, it shouldn't even have a reserve on the fuel tank!

I'd say a Wr400....I had one too and I striped it down to a YZ spec. Check the pigtail clip below the right side of the gas tank, if it has a 3 wires and one of them is grey.....it is a WR.

If you somehow determine it is a WR then clip the grey wire and tape it off to give YZ mapping along with retarding one tooth on the exhaust cam to give it some zing! The time mark on the cam should be at the 1 oclock position.

Also, a sure sign of a WR spec is mushy suspension if it was bone stock.

ok thanks or the help, when i will be home, i will check for the grey wire....

Once i tried to retard one tooth on exhaust cam, but after that bike didnt start with kickstarter, so i place cam on stock position...

Using frame and motor code yamaha dealer said that is wr400f....

Thanks for the help guys...

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I could use some feedback, My son is getting into off road riding so I have starting getting back into it as well.  We mostly do trail riding but did some MX track riding last year and he loved it andso did I.  I have a 2003 TTR 225, it's nice that it has an electric start but the suspension is too soft and it doesn't have enough power for my liking.  When I was riding the MX track I was having issues bottoming out on the larger jumps.  I want to change to a more off-road capable bike.   I won't ride it much and don't want to spend a lot of money, I think I prefer a 2 stroke, when I was younger, in 1990, I raced an 89 RM250 and loved it.  I am looking at a 96 RMX 250  and a 98 YZ400F, both bikes look to be in good condition and around a thousand dollars.  I like the RMX because I think kicking a 2 stroke 250 should be easier than a 4 stroke 400 and the simplicity of the 2 stroke engine.  The 400 sounds good because of the low end torque I assume it has but the cost of rebuilding the 4 stroke if needed worries me and I have heard they are hard to start. Should the RMX be decent for an occasional trip to an MX park?  Any thoughts on these two bikes?

      Brand new, still in the packaging Lexx end cap fits the stock muffler of 2006 & 2007 YZ450f and 06-13 YZ250f. Comes with a forest service approved spark arrestor and two different size tips. Don't spend hundreds of dollars on a slip on, this tip can be quiet and forest legal or loud and make power! Also a note for WR450 guys: get this tip and find a used 06/07 YZ muffler, fits directly on 09-15 WR450. $80 shipped free to the lower 48. PM, call or text 406-223-8789

      So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work).
      So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are.
      What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator http://www.rickystator.com/product/stators/yamaha/yamaha-yz450f-35-watt-lighting-stator-assembly-06-09 work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
