Looks good, I often wonder how well that plastic paint holds up...

Hopefully soon a rear fender and head light cowl will be available to us in white :applause:

On my bike (pictured on previous page) the prior owner had spray painted the side panels bright yellow (which actually looks really cool), but before selling it returned them back to white using spray paint again, and it's holding up really well, no real wear to speak of yet and it';s been a couple of years.
I just replaced my WR fender with a YZ fender and mounted my own home made led light under it - just wanted everyone to know a little trick I use to avoid all those unsightly screw holes for the light and wiring - I use Shoe goo or similar, that stuff sticks better than snot and if something decides to remove your light, it will likely come off in one piece instead of 21.

Matt, how do you like the WB muffler? I had one on my 426 but even with the quiet core insert and only 4 discs it was too loud for me.

I really don't know yet how I like it, I just put it on, and am in the process of doing a once over on the bike, waiting on several things before I fire it up:
Valve cover Gasket (should be in today)
reinstallation of gas tank etc.
Ripping apart front end to clean/overhaul/grease

But mainly, I'm not even going to put a drop of gas in it til I'm ready to ride - thats still a couple of months away maybe even longer depending on if it keeps on snowing like it has.
I'll let you know how I like it in April/May!

Edit - BTW - I got 6 disks on it to start, and the spark arrestor - I've read about the quiet insert, how does that work and how could you make one (hard to come by in Canada)

Here is a picture of it. You might be able to make one if you have a spare USFS end cap.
