just bought a 99 a month ago for 1700 bucks. i was looking to spend more and get a newer bike but it was cherry so i bought it. after 3 times out i love it. a bit heavy but you dont really (or at least i dont) notice it unless your picking it up on a steep hill :smirk: so far so good. plenty fast for me. replaced the stock bars with oversized and raised ones and im as happy with the bike as can be. will be all i need until i can afford something newer and lighter...

I have had my 99YZ400F for about 7 months now and love it. Racing it this weekend and have had no engine issues. My upgrades were to a SDG tall seat, protaper fat bars with universal mounts, new MSR clutch lever with thumb decompress button, Maxxis Tires and heavier springs for my size. I did have the cracked tank problem but got a sweet deal on an clarke OEM tank new on ebay for 65 bucks.

I set my WR400 up just for riding in deep snow this winter, heated grips, and the Trelliborgs mounted, and have only had a chance to ride it a few times. This past Sunday the ground was nothing but a sheet of ice and light snow so I took it for a ride, and had a blast!
It hooked up every where, power to spare, 3rd and 4th gear backing it into corners on twisty trails and the bike and tires never let loose, what a fun day.
I'll have to get around to hosting the video and post it up, I was by myself because no one else wanted to ride in those conditions, so it's not my usual video of chasing another rider, but still fun.

Here's the link to the video's
