I just bought this 99 YZ400F on Monday. I have only been out riding once on it but it was a blast. It has been a few years since I had ridden and I love it. I know its not a 450 but it will do for now. After I get back into the groove of riding again I hope to get on a 450. But for now this has more power than I can use. I has a few aftermarket things like Race Tech suspension, Pro Tapers w/Applied clamp, Magura Juice Clutch, alum throttle tube, Maxxis, Fastline w/CR routing, FMF PB, Renthal chain, sprockets. Just did the blue wire mod and starts easy, so far. Just thought I'd share my bike with ya.

The graphix were from the previous owner. I think they work fine since I am a fireman. Check out Fire Police Motocross Nationals :)

You might want to zip tie that crank case breather hose to your lower frame rail. :)

If it runs as good as it looks, I think you got yourself a whole lot of fun there :)

Be careful and ride smart !!

The bike looks awesome! By the way, I went and checked out the FPMN web site and I must say that Jessica Snyder looks pretty awesome too!
