Here is a picture of my bike. it's a 98 yz 400. this is how I got the bike. I've put on a black front fender and I has a black rear fender. I'm wondering if any one has an opinion on what color my new side panel plastic should be. O and I have blue fork covers. sorry the pic is kinda small. I'm trying to avoid making my bike look like a bruise flying through the desert :thumbsup:

thanks, Dan

Its your bike buddy, do what you like. The way I look at it, there are a million bikes just the same out there, set yours up to be as unique as you are. I have a pretty unique looking bike, some like it-some dont. But the bottom line is its mine and I LOVE it. :thumbsup:

I think the front and side panels should always be white, you can put any backgrounds on them to get the colour you want. This is one of the best looking bikes I've seen here, yzwiley's 250, so clean and simple

And BnB, your bike is also among the nicest I've seen, really like it, it looks better with the black fenders than if they were yellow.

I vote for black if those are your only choices, otherwise I prefer white side panels no matter what the rest of the bike is (black, yellow or blue).... as for that head pipe, that is the Big Gun head pipe, I had one but it wouldn't work with my oversize tank with right side exit petcock, do you like that exhaust system? I never got to run mine so I sold it and got a White Bros. Pro Meg system.

First off I decided to go with the blue side panels and I think I'm almost done with what I want to do with this bike. My next mod will be a kickstand. And so far I like the exhaust, but I don't really have anything to compare because I baught it with it on. I think I need to repack the silencer though....she's really loud. Awesome power in the entire throttle range. Plus it looks bad a**! :crazy: One question stillsun. did the big gun come with a bushing in between the header pipe and the silencer pipe? Mine has no seal :ride:

BTW I'm still trying to decide if I like the blue side panels. I will post some pics soon
