No paint (that's never held up for any extended length in the past for me) so I had to drop the coins for the black one, which was unfortunate since the bike already had the blue IMS oversize on it. By the way, I have a blue one for sale if anyone's interested, it's just sitting in my garage waiting to be bought.

I converted my '02 to the 450 plastics and used a hurricane kit at the same time. Mostly stock except for a 450 cam, the FMF Q2, and the front forks have been worked over.

When I move out and get my own house, the bike may very well get to be in the house...

I like the black frame guards and waterpump guard. The lights look pretty cool also...what setup is that?


The frame guards are real carbon fiber and the engine guards are just powdercoated. The headlight is an acerbis cyclope! Thanks!

its a trail tech from what i remember, the stand works fine, had a problem with the return spring breaking but replaced it and its been fine. from what i hear trail tech has upgraded the design and is a little more rigid

The yellow looks so good on tose bikes. I am so confused, for years all I wanted was a blue Yamaha. Now that I have one I keep thinking I want to convert it to old school yellow! I am such a chick sometimes :lol:

Nice bike probikerguy. If you take a heat gun or a hair dryer to those stress marks in your plastics they will all but disappear. I actually use a blowtorch but do it very, very carefully.
