I figured that I would let everyone know that the white kit is well worth the money. It looks so sick and I even opted out of putting some of the trim graphics on like the airbox and front fork logos.

Very nice. Do those kits come with the graphics applied to the plastic? Somehow I think I know the answer already.

Wow!!! That looks sick. However, your chain is way to tight, I wouldn't want you to hurt the hub or tranny on that beautiful masterpiece! Great looking bike.

Sorry! I guess it only appears that way. I always think mine is loose but whenever I measure it its always right at 2" from the rear chain slider bolt to the chain on the stand like the manual specs. When its in spec it has quite a noticeable bow from the front to the rear sprocket. All of my previous bikes had a shorter spec and its taking a little getting used to. Anyway love the new look :devil:
PS: What bend did you go with on your bars I am 6-4 and am looking for a little more room. I have 8mm risers now but i think I could use a little more room and yours look taller.

Your bike looks awesome. European and Canadian Yammies used to come that way!

Make sure to take lots of pics. I have the same kit, and after a few rides, your knees will embed the dirt into the shrouds, permanantly.

I've tried every cleaner I can think of, and it won't come out! :devil:

Troutman, I have the Reed/Henry bends on it right now, I jumped on that bandwagon and seemed to like it. I took a really hard digger Sunday and I bent them, so I corner better left than right. Ive got some Sunline AV One's on the way. I think that for your height, you might better from the Windham bend. Also, another question, is there anyway to rubbermount the stock clamps? NDC....brillo pads. They scratch up your graphics just a tad, but they get that brown out. Also, for the plastic scratches that have dirt embedded in them, use 2000-3000 grit sandpaper with lots of water. Works WONDERS!

Can you cut clear and put over the new graphics when new? This is my concern too...Red Clay here in the SE will destroy the white Graphics but I think I am going to order them anyway

Im sure you can use the clear covers that FX sells. Check Rocky Mountain or Parts Unlimited. I ride this Georgia clay and clay down here in north Florida...it doesnt really concern me. Its a dirt bike, not a harley...just wash it and change the oil. Yamahas run forever, but they cant look great forever

In 2006, Yamaha went with a different gas tank and shroud combo. The graphics don't touch the gas tank. THANK GOD! The '07 has the same type design.

The front and rear fenders would maybe fit an '05 though.

Nope, not the rear fender. But try UFO or Polisport for white plastics. Seems to me one of the two makes them.
