Found some old YZ400F pics from 1998

Was going through old pics and thought some YZ guys might like these.

I was one of the guys on the waiting list in 1998, this was one of the first YZ400F's in LA, from Malcolm Smith Motorsports.

After the first ride, the graphics peeled and the steering was lazy.

So immediately put graphics, Applied upper clamps, Protapers and an FMF pipe on it.

These pics were right after the mods and prior to the second ride.

Many fun Thursdays getting to ride Glen Helen and get tips from Doug Dubach as he was still working on development for Yamaha and White Brothers.
