Couple questions guys. First what cleans the scuffs off the aluminum frame good? I don't want anything thats going to polish it. Do you know of anyplace that sells good frame guards, preferably black plastic ones? I've looked around a bit and all I came up with was universal fit ones. Also, how are you supposed to check the darn oil on this bike? They put the dipstick in a terrible spot, I mean its the first place to get completely covered with dirt. And I don't usually carry a pressure washer to the track, so I guess I'm pretty much screwed for checking it.. unless I want dirt to drop in the motor. That was stupid on Yamaha's part. On the plus side, the bike is fast as hell, awsome suspension, you can actually get the spark plug out without taking the whole bike apart. I am starting to miss the 426 less and less now.. shit its already forgotten! Cant wait till the next ride! Do you guys find this bike corners weird? I'm having a tough time adapting to it... handles alot different than the 426. I think maybe I'm so used to muscling the old 426 around that I'm over riding it in the corners. I guess I just need to get some more seat time in.
