3 x clutch lever (1 of 3 still sealed in Yamaha pack)

3 x rear sprocket (46t, 50t, 51t)

1 x pair fork oil seals (still in Yamaha sealed pack)

1 x pair fork dust seals (still in Yamaha sealed pack)

1 x Camshaft (still in Yamaha box)

1 x oil pump assembly (still in Yamaha box)

4 x wheel bearing (still in Yamaha sealed boxes)

1 x rear brake caliper guard

1 x Renthal fatbars (including mounts) (light use)

1 x spare top yoke

1 x standard header exhaust pipe (light use)

3 x foam air filter

2 x fork spring

1 x shock spring

1 x set of Acerbis hand guards (including fitting kit)

1 x clutch lever mount

1 x chain slider (front mounted) (still in Yamaha sealed pack)

1 x chain slider (rear mounted)

1 x clutch cable

16 x various engine seals (in Yamaha sealed parts bags)

2 x main jet 170, 175

1 x set front brake pads (still in sealed Yamaha box)

2 x number board decal (yellow, new)

1 x combination spoke spanner (7mm and 9mm)

3 x front spokes

4 x rear spokes

Time will tell if you got a good deal. Depends on how many of those parts you actually use.

What i meant was if you were to buy these parts would the approx cost match what i paid? i know the Renthal bars alone are around 50 pounds here!

At the current exchange rate (1 US dollar = 1.96 UK pounds) that's probably a deal over here. You've easily got over a hundred dollars worth of seals and bearings, and the bar/triple clamp combo is another hundred +. If you do all your own repairs/maintenance and like having spares on hand, I'd go for it.

id jump on that if i were you!

but why did he have so many extra parts? does the bike really need all that stuff because of its condition?

No, the guy is an ex-Yamaha sponsored rider and is now with KTM so he sold off all the Yamaha bikes and spares, i snapped it all up and am very happy with it.

howzer.

I would buy the parts, keep what you think you'll use and sell the rest on e-bay or sell to other 450 owners.

You got a bargain with those spares, looking at the list, you will in future use a lot of that, like the ones in blue.
