If I remember correctly the early ones were called "MX" the YZ came out in 73 I think. Or are you referring to the "IT"

Jim

The original YZ's were silver. The yellow bikes were called "MX", unless you're talking about the factory bikes, which were "OW"'s.

woman rider. :cry:

Yellow Zinger? :cry:

Not quite, but real close. It was Yellow Zonkers" , the adds reffered to them as the "Screaming Yellow Zonkers" I remember the candied popcorn, kinda like the fiddle faddle, it was Yellow Zonkers too. I always think of those old yellow and black Yamahas back in the day when I see the popcorn. I was at the Seattle Supercross in 79 when Hurrican Hannah won on a YZ250. It was my first supercross. Now I look at those bikes and wonder how they ever even rode them. Jumps back then would be whoops by todays standards.

...Hey, did you ever get a chance to get that O-ring part number?

Check your PM's :cry:

Won't Run
