thanks for checking that out Don! i'd like to do it but don't have the funds right now...

Has anybody plastic painted a headlight cowl anywhere on TT?


all i've done was my number plates (shown above) i think the head light would hold up better cause it usually doesn't hit the ground when you wreck...lol

You should be able to find one on UFO plastics website, they have several different colors for all bikes, not just Yamaha. I just bought all black plastic for my 08 WR450, it's sweet.

I installed the YZ yellow Bob "Hurricane" Hanna plastic/decal kit on my bike. (just like in the picture of the original post) It looks awesome I had a machine shop make a custom bracket/cage assembly for the rear fender out of aluminum, it looks good. I also installed the YZ front number plate until I figure out that...IMS 3.1 gallon tank and a new tall soft Guts seat. Very nice a lot of time and money, but well worth it to me. I'll post a picture soon.

right behind you there!!! Have been hunting around for plastics (white or black) for my '01 426 and there are bits and pieces available but the hardest one to get hold of is the rear fender with a tail light. Apart from stickers it is difficult to customise and individualise bikes, there's another thread about painting plastics so there is a demand for it! Come on Yamaha, Acerbis, UFO, anyone!!!

I would buy the yellow one in a heart beat.
I think it would be cool if they did a sky blue/black/gold heralding back to the old IT's of the 70's and 80's those colors look sharp together.

I was gonna keep it simple, maybe a white tuning fork logo on the radiator covers, and other than that just keep it plain. My rear fender should show up in the next couple days, once i get that installed i'll take a few pics and post them

Chris--where did you get the seat? Is it softer than the stock seats? mine's like a rock, it's a pain in the a**, literally.
