I took the bike totally apart and this is the result.
Changed ALL bearings and replaced the clutch basket due to broken springs. New DID chain and renthal sprockets.
WB E-series is on next week.
Ordered black plastic but some of it is still underway..
Bougt some black close also and now they all call me the shadow.... Wonder why? :) :D

Looks sweet!

What did you use on your tank? Paint? Graphics?

A little to much black but maybe it just the way it looks in pics but hay :) :D

I think maybe putting sum chrome or a nice graphic kit an decals front to back will really set it off well.

I rebuilded it at work, we are selling spareparts to cars.

Look at the BBR graphics! I too did a blacked out yz and they looked great!I bought what they called a "hot top"
it's a cover that goes over your stock blue tank so that it looks like a black tank!NICE BIKE!
