I always use Acerbis plastics.... well priced and good quality. I thought I might get this kit next. Looks pretty sharp and for $99 for everything, graphics/seat cover and trim kit, you won't find anything cheaper.

I like both UFO and Acerbis plastic, Polysport is cheaper but does not seem to last as long as UFO and Acerbis. I like Factory Effex for graphics or check out N-Style and One Industries.

I put Acerbis shrouds with One Industries Alpha graphics on my 06, or at least I will when I have the time. I really like the One graphics, and if you're interested I have the seat cover from the kit left over that I'd make you a good deal on.

Some of the Acerbis stuff is a little disappointing. The side plates for a '00-'02 YZF don't have the hooks at the top that hang over the sub frame and keep that corner tucked in. They also don't come with the heat tiles on the pipe side as Poli-Sport does. What really ticked me was the fact that I had to ream the mounting holes to accept the aluminum sleeves that go in those holes.

I would just go with some OEM stuff myself, but if you're looking for cheaper stuff, UFO, and Acerbis seem to be pretty popular. GYTR Graphics are really factory looking, and I like them. N-Style, One Industries, Skin Industries, Factory Effex, etc...also make graphics. De-Cal works, and 180Graphics could make some custom ones for you if you want too.

Good starter bike eh?

Anyone know if the wr 450 plastic side number plates will work on the yzf's? I hate that there is no place on the right side of the bike to lift it up. I do a lot of woods riding and it's nice to have a place to grab that doesn't burn your hand. My large chunky sausage fingers don't fit in the air scoops. Thanks

You're supposed to lift it by the fender (closest to seat as you can get)...at least that is what I do...and put some leg into it!

I replaced all my plastics and stickers on my 2006 YZ250F for around $100 with OEM Yamaha parts bought from http://www.stadiumyamaha.com. Takes about a week and a half to get the stuff but who can beat this price for OEM stuff.

Go with UFO plastics. I had a front fender on my 03 250f it was basically my starter bike only went on 4 rides before I bought the 250. I had penlty of crashes on the 250 and the ufo didn't break. Had the 250 for almost 3 years the fender is just starting to break. Also the ufo fender was on the bike when I bought it used in Fed. 04.
