newer model plastics for older bike?

hey guys im new to thumpertalk, but ive been using the threads for a while so decided i might as well sign up. i have a 1990 yz 125 that could use some new plastics but i cant find anyone that sells plastics for that year ( they usually stop at '96). so, i was wondering if any plastics for newer models fit? i have heard that 99 yz 250 plastics might work but could anyone confirm this?

thanks in advance for your help!!

thanks rusky, are those oem or aftermarket?

They are oem style but made by an aftermarket company i believe... There may be slight differences from the originals though.

sweet... those dont look half bad. ill definately look into them.

I have a 1990 yz 125 also that I updated the plastic to the 91-92 look. very little mods to get them to fit. Motosport.com will get you eveything you need and they were the cheapest by far I found. I will have pics on here some day.

killer, id love to see the pics. what kind of mods were necassary? im up for anything except trimming.

hey chap dont stress,i just got new oem plastics for my 88 yz125 and no problem.just order them from your yamaha dealer least you'll know they'll be perfect.in south africa i paid +/- 150 rand each lol what a bargain!

      Hey guys I read an article saying that the 01 YZ125 has six gears. But other people are saying that it's 5. How many gears does it have? Just asking. Thanks.

      2006 YZ 250.. The manual calls for 10w30 (yamalube 4 stroke oil), can I use 10w50 (Motul semi sythetic 4 stroke oil) ??   I bought the bike, want to change the gear oil before I ride tomorrow but all I have at the moment is the Motul 10w50  semi synth.  Is that oil going to be too thick compared to the 10w30 or will it be fine..  Thanks

      I bought a YZ250F yesterday and the previous owner said apparently it runs but they weren’t strong enough to kick it. I couldn’t kick while there so I took their word for it and bought it. I’ve been trying to get it to fire all day today, there are 2 chokes and I’m unsure if the air mixture is correct, so would be nice to know what I should do, it’s hard to adjust the air screw when the bike won’t even run. I noticed the spark is kinda low, I don’t know if it’s normally supposed to be like that or not. I can see a blue spark but it is very small and crappy, I’ve had thumpstars that generated stronger spark, I changed the plug it’s still the same, so maybe could be an electrical problem, the only ground connection I could find was for the ignition lead which I filed down to bare metal so I’m pretty sure that connection is good. Anything else I’m missing? It’s very hard to kick and I can feel the compression out of the exhaust so I don’t think compression is the issue.Just wanna know what I should do, haven’t owned a yz before so I could be not using the choke right or something. Thanks
