Pics of your 06-09 yzf 450

How does that white clean up after a good ride?? I just ordered a white plastic kit for my 06.... but now I'm having second thoughts. I just realized there is very limited graphics out there for anything white. I guess I could order the OEM ones... Not real fussy on the henry ones neither. Do you think it would look good it you had white plastics with a blue graphic kit? I think it may look pretty cool. Any suggestions?

02, a while back SureBlue posted a pic of his 06 with white plastic and a GYT-R graphics kit that had a lot of blue in it, and it actually looked pretty good. If you dig for it, you might be able to find it.

Thanks... I looked it up, actually I remember seeing that bike here before. It does look pretty sweet.. not sure if its exactly the look I want. Guess the search continues. Any other ideas?

No way.. that thing looks badass with the street gear and IMS gas tank. Only thing I would change for looks is the headlight. I like the Twins headlight for style... but the one that he has on there now is more pratical for night riding.

Here's a picture of my bike. I don't have white plastics, but I think this kit would look killer with white plastics, plus some black or blue rims. I might try a white front fender in the near future, just to see what it will look like.

      Hey guys, 
      I am really needing some good advice here from anybody who has ever owned or rebuilt classic Yamaha 2 strokes (1989 - 1994). I live in South Africa, and bought a little farm thumper while on holiday this past weekend. It was advertised as a DT175 which is a bike that is easy to get parts for down here. It has been cosmetically customized and looks pretty darn cool... and lets face it, all the old classic Yamaha 2T engines look the same at a glance! So I genuinely thought it was a naked DT. The bike had no papers, and was used purely for the farmer to putt around on his farm.
      The only things needing attention was the stator cover which had snapped in half - this was visibly noticeable, and a little leak from a badly resealed gasket (both generally easy and cheap to fix here). The bike was still running and idling fine, started first kick, and I had a little ride around the farm before loading the bike up onto my pickup and heading off, thinking I could fix this thing up nicely in no time for next to nothing, and have what we call down in SA "a nuwe speelgoed" (A new plaything) for the weekends when I am not riding my beloved and reliable DRZ400SM. 
      SO, I get home and decide to contact our local Yamaha branch, out of interest, to find out the history of the bike before I start fiddling (Don't ask me why I did not do this all before I bought the bike - It was a spur of the moment purchase, and was sold to me for dirt cheap!). I send off the VIN and engine number. Comes back, and this little freakin' turd turns out to be a 1989 TDR180!! WHAT. But now I am stuck as we do not really have TDR's down here - and I have never even seen one myself.
      Long story short - What alternative could I use as a stator cover? Do any other old Yamaha 2T model stator covers fit the TDR or share similar engine parts? Ordering from Ebay is so expensive thanks to my country being in junk status due to a junk president. So the shipping costs more than the actual item does, and our customs is a joke too. Yamaha has also advised me that this stator cover has been discontinued.
      I have put up local ads looking for parts, contacted FB 2T groups, and local shops. Nothing for TDR's has come back yet.
      Any advice or sharing of experience is welcome!

      Hitting your landing target is critical in motocross. It is also better for your health! Not only hitting your landing, but getting there quickly is also important. The two most common techniques regarding jumping are absorbing the take off to stay low and launching the take off to clear an obstacle, to make it to the landing.

      I bought a Yamaha Yz125 1996. Didn't start so I turned the Reed valves around and it worked 100%. It was standing for a very long time. Last weekend when I went out with it, it started loosing power and after a while it just stopped starting again. Can this be the reedvales that is old? Btw the idle skrew also came out  almost completely when I drove it so maybe that can be a issue. Also when I opened the Reed valves I found very thin metal shavings. What can cause this?

      of course Yamaha is a true winner  . 
      I wish i could test both bikes . anyway for me is better to develop my driving skill before i buy one of these bikes .
