welcome to the site.

the main thing i jave learned is to change the oil often. every 500 k's or less and the filter. cheap insurance.

do the yz timing mod, do a search or look at this.

you can get all your part numbers here

http://www.yamaha-motor.com/star/parts/home.aspx

and you can get all your genuine parts at half dealer rates here

http://www.jp-parts.com/index.html

the general consensus on tyres is mich s12 up front and maxxis (your choice) rear, mine is surcross.

bulk more info available on here and lots of knowledgeable(?) people as well.

oh and drop the capital letters, you may get accused of shouting.

good luck and enjoy.

Turn off CAP LOCK i.e. no little green light under the left hand-wait you drive on the wrong side of the road. Are the keyboards backwards as well? :thumbsup:

it's gettin like Alice in this thread ... curiouser and curiouser ? so what did you pay for your 400 - and what sort of condition is it in ? Most of the one's i've seen here in Aus have had pretty hard lives add i'm not sure that they've got a lot of life left in them ...
