Got my parts today! They look somewhat crappy in the pics but ohh well, it's also because the parts were cold and were fogged up because of the heat in my room. Also ordered some white YZ plastics and a White Clarke tank. Maybe wheels tonight.

Thanks! I got some 2003 YZ450F plastics for mine. They did fit, except the left rear number board needed to be modified a little. You can get them on ebay for cheap. I believe I paid around 160$ for mine, shipped to Canada. 

That's not to bad. I' was looking at the ones on ebay and would also be shipping to Canada thanks for the prices!

Also I wanted to let you know (if you didn't already) the decompression plug will fly out of your bike at any moment if you haven't already upgraded to the tt model. And the starter will adventually kick back and could mess up your case. And also the key that goes in between your flywheel and crank shaft don't last very long. I put a brand new one in from macleans and it broke in half the first kick. Had to put a key out of a little 50 cc bike no name bike. Fit perfect and hasn't broken yet!

Thanks for the tips! I heard of the plug failing, I might buy myself one of those Billet Al replacements. I heard that the first 03's were bad for shearing the woodruff key, I haven't had any problems with mine. Still looks brand new.

Are you from NB as well? :)

Your welcome just some problems I've had so far haha. Ya the 03 have a lot of recalls that were fixed in the 04 and up models like the electric start. Does the electric start still work on your bike? Yea I am, waiting for this stupid weather to warm up so I can go for a rip! Hah

Some progress in the last few days.
