welcome to the site.
the main thing i jave learned is to change the oil often. every 500 k's or less and the filter. cheap insurance.
do the yz timing mod, do a search or look at this.

you can get all your part numbers here
http://www.yamaha-mo...parts/home.aspx

and you can get all your genuine parts at half dealer rates here
http://www.jp-parts.com/index.html

the general consensus on tyres is mich s12 up front and maxxis (your choice) rear, mine is surcross.

bulk more info available on here and lots of knowledgeable(?) people as well.

oh and drop the capital letters, you may get accused of shouting.
good luck and enjoy.

Turn off CAP LOCK i.e. no little green light under the left hand-wait you drive on the wrong side of the road. Are the keyboards backwards as well? :thumbsup:
