This is my 2000. It now has a carbon chain guide, carbon rear master guard, and am working on finding a carbon airbox for it.

What did I win?

Well my friend 642MX, you have my vote - You won a new set of Maxxis IT's - Which would certainly make your bike look, tougher, more manly and of course - better. :devil: See my garage for the best looking stock 426 :thumbsup:

I don't think my elbows could take mounting another set of Maxxis 's...:smirk:

Are you about ready to freshen up your motor?

Here's my '02...same graphics as novi2krt. I also have a white IMS tank and shrouds but no graphics for it. Need to have the frame powder coated a different color before I can put all that on anyway.

I was toying with the idea of swapping to white plastics and tank on the next "mandatory" plastic change, on ATM a guy posted up a link to graphics that would have looked awesome for the 426 on white with the blue frame, but now I can't remember the company! DOHH!

Shrekka has the graphics I just wsa forced to remove, I really liked those!

      Hey folks,
      I'm delighted to be back in the YZ 2 stroke forum after a bit of an absence. I used to own a 03 YZ 125 which always regret selling. I currently own a 2011 yz 250f and owned a 03 rm 125 until recently when I sold it to a friend. Only a few weeks later I got the 2 stroke itch and began looking for a 06+ YZ 125, after being blown away by the SSS suspension on the 250f. A few came and went that I missed out on but finally one popped up. Advertised as a 2007 yz 125 (vin checks as a 06) priced at  2500 Euro. The usual BS advertised was on the ad "good tires only one ride, chain and sprockets good etc " Arrived down and found the chain and sprockets absolutely shot, tires were worn, Leaky fork seals(looked like new oil?) rear fender broken few bits and pieces. Talked him down to 2200 euro and was happy enough with that. Picked it up on friday on my way home from college and started ripping it apart. And that's where things go down hill 
      Found the air filter in a shocking state (see pics) which caused a major groan.... still at least its a 2 stroke. From looking in the exhaust and intake ports I could still see crosshatching very clearly, unfortunately I didn't have time to rip the cylinder off yet. Counter shaft seal appears to be weeping so that will get replaced, also isn't there an issue with 06 shift stopper or something? It does have unbreakable levers which is one of the few plus's
      All of the bearings will be inspected and replaced if necessary, new top end most likely, new bars, grips, tires, fork seals, chain and sprockets, air filter, restyle plastics more than likely and whatever else I uncover 
      Keep in mind this will be a slow build as I'm in college 5 days a week.
      Now some pics
