I went to the shop today to just talk with Robert my riding buddy who owns the Yamaha shop and see if he had herd of when the bike was goning to be in and to my amazement it was on the floor waiting on me.

He said it came in yesterday but he wasnt going to tell me but suprise me when I came down.
I'm glad it is here now. He told me I could go ahead and take it home if I wanted to but I told him I would just wait til wednesday. He kinda wanted it to set for a day or two for people to look at since he was just alocated one of them.
I sat on it and man is the suspension stiff on this ride and I'm at 175lbs.

that is one reason why I didnt take it to the house. man we got hammered with the snow. Around 27 inches here but not like yal's 50+ inches.

If i would have brought it home i guess I would have put the FMF 4.1 full exhaust on and my rad braces and skid plate all by works connection.

Your just the right weight for that suspension.. It just takes about 4 hrs of hard riding to get it broken in. My other YZ's always broke in pretty quick ... not this one...

Have fun!

Holy-crap! I paid 10,300 out the door(9000 before tax and stuff MSRP 9500). Canadian dollars, though...Congrats...Now you too can feel the pain of watching snow fall while your new baby sits. At least she is warm. Happy riding in spring!

I'll bring it to the house wednesday. I'm trying to decide whether to put the graphics i got from Decal works on it or buy new plastics to put the decals on them.

I cant find a place that is selling aftermarket plastic kit for it now.

I have the bike here at the house now and I'm putting on my full FMF 4.1 exhaust. When I get it on I will take a pic and post it.

I'll then put my skid plate on and the radiator braces by works connection and take a pic.

I'll start on the graphics tommorow.

Here is the skid plate.........The only thing I dont like about this.......is that there is no room to get a socket or a wrench up through the skidplte hole to take the oil drain plug off.....nor is there a way to get to the oil plug above the frame rail.

Looks like you will have to take the skid plate off in order to take the drain plug off. Might be able to get to it by just taking the one bolt off at the back and pull down on the skidplate a little to gain access to the oil drain bolt.......but will have to experiment.

Here is some pics (if you can tell) of how small a space there is to get to the oil drain plug. Doesnt look like one will be able to change the oil unless you pull the plate off every time or just take the back bolt off the plate and pull it down a little. May just have to take it off everytime when changing the oil.

I have one side of the bike completed and the front and rear fenders.

I may do a little more but am going to stop for the day and just stare at it:cool:

Posted Image


The front fender tip decal and the arch's were pretty easy.

Posted Image

The decal on the tank was pretty tricky but the shroud was fairly easy.

Posted Image


The rear fender was kinda a pain but you just had to keep working at it with heat and making sure you got all the air bubbles out. It turned out rear well......better than i thought it would......Looks real slick

Posted Image


I'll take a couple days off from working on it and finish the decals up monday

I'll post back then with the finished product.
