I've ordered a pro circuit t4 slip on, scotts dampner, white camo graphics and plastics, steel oil filter, fuel screw and the air cell sub tanks all for the new 07. Are there any suggestions of extra's you would consider for the 07 and has anybody tried the Air cells on the 07's suspension?

Are you talking sub tanks like Enzos?These forks do not need the tanks, I have a set of enzo tanks and Ross from Enzo said there is no need because the way the new fork is.
The PC pipe is ga great pipe I personally like DR D and have ordered it for my 07. I cut out the back fire screen on the air filter cage also.. I am sending the suspension after this weekend to BR1 which is a Kayaba specialist.
Br1 suspension in Watsonville CA.

Post some pics when you get the graphics and plastics on. I haven't seen camo graphics on the yami's yet.

Sub tanks are not as important to the new SSS twin chamber fork, but are still offered, and still serve one of the two original functions. The air contained within the fork becomes a part of the spring rate. The more oil is in the fork, the higher the fork's "compression ratio" is. On older forks, the problem was that if you put enough oil in them to stop them from foaming and bottoming, the was too little air space left, and they became quite harsh. Sub tanks simply added more air space so the oil supply could be increased without that happening.

But Enzo added another feature, soon duplicated by others. They put a one-way metering valve in the inlet to the tank which allowed air to flow freely back to the fork, but could control the flow from the fork to the tank under compression. This adds a little speed sensitivity to the picture, and lets the fork be set up softer without bottoming on the big stuff.

The '06/'07 fork has no problem with foaming, but it still compresses the internal air mass in the same way, and many have found it to be somewhat sensitive to changes in fluid level. As little as 10cc removed from each side has been known to take them from too harsh to too prone to bottoming. I can see that adding sub tanks would decrease that sensitivity some, and add an additional layer of speed sensitivity adjustment as well. The fork works extremely well without any modification, of course, but that's not to say it couldn't be improved.

Go to btosports.com and have a look under graphics and seat covers section. Looks even better than the white and grey stock version.
