They are the exact same. I mount mine low (even with the angle of the levers) because I HAD A BUDDY GO OVER THE BARS WITH THESE HAND GUARDS MOUNTED HIGH LIKE THAT AND HE COMPLETELY BROKE BOTH OF HIS HANDS IN HALF, ugly... Really ugly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would suggest mounting them lower so that if you go over, you can get your hands out of there easily...

You were the one who asked for thoughts!
Rick told you what he thought. Don't complain.

I think it looks WAY too plain, and the black plastics don't match the blue frame.
I also think that maybe a graphics kit would make it look better and tie the frame / plastics together.

Thanks for the feedback, a response like that is good for feedback :thumbsup: but I think him saying it looks like shit and that Im on acid is a little over the top dont you :bonk: ? I have a real problem with jerks and I think they pollute the sport. I think I am going to add a graphics kit. I have been looking and cant find one I like yet. When I did it all I threw around painting the frame but didnt want to strip it of all the yamaha look so I left the frame. Thanks for your opinion :thumbsup:

Thanks, Its a IMS 4 gallon, you have to upgrade to the YZ seat with it. I like it cause if I dont fill it all the way up say half to three quarters, the weight of the gas is the same as the stock tank but its actually lower to the ground because of the increased size and shape of the tank. It does make a difference on tight trails when you really need to toss it around. A must for long rides and scrambles. Most guys have to pit in the scrambles for a splash :eek: but I just go right through the pits!!! :p :thumbsup: :bonk: :thumbsup:

You are right about the frame, I think a good graphics kit will hopefully bring them together. Thanks for the thaught matty I didnt think about the tying them together thing now ill make that number one while picking out the graphics...:thumbsup:))

sexy wr?? about as close to sexy is the anniversary model in yellow and then only a brand new bike could be regarded as sexy, without scratches, nice and clean.
maybe get a catalogue from the local dealer and take a trip to the toilet and see how you go.
just like at a bar, if you find an old scrubber and take it out, you can do anything with it and it will be happy. you can jump it, try a back flip, no need to worry about making it look worse, you just may not want to ride it in front of your mates.


Close enough?

Steve, sorry you took such insult with my reply to to your bike. I didn't think you would be so sensative to it, but I was mistaken. I'm a decent guy, I'd probably smoke you, but I agree, there was no need to be so insulting. You asked for responses, and I was brutally honest. For that I appologize. I'm not above myself. I was feeling a little playfull lastnight and should have considered your feelings. :thumbsup:

Regardless of what was said, all of us this on the forum would help a fellow rider in need and I'm no execption. Hope you can accept this as a sincere reply and let's ride on! :p

Best

Hey skidx its not krylon, come on bro. Polisport on Chapparel.com sells all black plastics for the 99. The only company I can find that does.
