It looks like the pre-production YZ400f back in 97'? Where did you take/get these pics? Later.

That muffler looks real similar to the Thunder Alley pipe (the way how the inlet pipe tapers, megaphone)

I noticed the pipe too, first thing really. So is that really the pre-pro 400? or what? I doubt the whole 1989 thing really, but some other things in that photo make me wonder ie. front fender/number plate are old style 97-99, also the low speed exhaust valve in the pipe. That was on Henry's pre-pro too.

That kicker looks like its off a YZ 250. I would also say that is the YZ400M. The clutch cover looks like its magnesium just like the pre-production bike. Does that tiny rear brake remind anyone of the 1997 YZ 250's? The 98 was larger. They just didnt put it on the YZF because it hit the silencer.
