I posted this in the general forum, but wanted to make sure all my Yamaha buddy's seen it. I typically don't install numbers, so this might take me some getting used on the new look.

Nice. It's a good new look. IMO motocross bikes look better with numbers. They are racing machines and to me numbers complete the package.

Looks good, but new chain and sprockets would complete the bike. Skid plate is a good idea too, glad I bought one before anything happened to my cases because the last time I was at the track it seemed a bit rocky...which is unusual.

backgrounds and numbers look cool if you actually use them for racing certain classes. it lets you size up the competition on days you are practicing. i haven't raced my 06 yet but i got my #'s on there just in case. you don't want to be the spode at the track with the white backgrounds and the # 1 on your bike and the #2 on your friends or your wife's bike. unless you earned those #'s of course. or even putting the pro's #'s on there because your bike looks like theirs. thats pretty spodeish too. i just made that last word up. :thumbsup:

nope, just plain white plates, no goofy #'s until i started racing. no numbers were necessary until i started racing, what do you need the numbers for? ya cant tell your bike from the others?? i like it when people put their actual color backgrounds and proper racing # on, so you can size em up. it's kind of funny to pass someone out there with pro backgrounds and #'s riding at my (novice) level. and it's cool to get railed like you are standing still by someone who actually earned their pro plate and #.i guess some just don't know. when i started riding, i rode with (actually got my butt kicked) lots of pro riders, i guess i'm lucky as they steered me in the right direction so i wouldn't look any more like a dork than i already was.

I put the yamaha skid plate and water pump guard on that bike... They fit like a glove.

Chain is next...

Nice lookin ride man. I dont race, but I have to have my club number on my bike to ride at our club. Kinda sucks, because people ask me if I race, kinda makes me look like a poser. But I am quick to tell them I am a half ass rider. :thumbsup:

Ummm, it looks good and I don't really want to spoil the party, but 450's usually have white backgrounds and 250's have black backgrounds(your signature says 450). It doesn't really matter if you're not racing; do you just like the look better?

Generally the answer is yes, but not always. I am a WORCS member and backgrounds and number colors are determined by the class that you race. They have white, black, yellow, red, and blue backgrounds with either white or black numbers. Being an off-road series rather than straight motcross there can be 120 riders from five different classes on the course at one time. The colors help them keep track of everybody in case the transponders quit working.

By the way, to all you guys that have posted pics of your bikes: Lookin' good dudes! :thumbsup:

...and by the way, if a WORCS event is happening near wherever you might live I highly recommend that you give it a shot. Most of them are in California but they also hit Washington, Idaho, Utah, Nevada and Arizona. They are run well and it makes for a kick ass weekend. http://www.worcsracing.com

I did a WORCS last year at cycle ranch in TX... that was a miserable race. It was pouring rain the whole time. Cost about 400 bucks to fix my bike after that race too: clutch, wheel bearings, steering head bearings, linkage bearings, etc etc - but i'd do it again in a second :thumbsup:

That's an incredible pic...and it speaks volumes for the WORCS events that even after all that you end it by saying that you would 'do it again in a second'

The course up here in Cinebar had a few really, really silty sections and the roosts were flying. I don't think I have ever had such a dirty air filter, nor can I remember ever getting so dirty on a dry day...but as you said, I'd do it again in a second :thumbsup:

I just put them on for the look, I am thinking new ones will have to be put on next year or sooner. I went riding today and my boots really did a number on them! It is hard to keep anything on a dirt bike nice unless you don't ride it. :thumbsup:
