Back after 6 six years away and I have questions

I have ridden for 20+ years but it has been 6 years since I have had an offroad bike. I picked up a 1999 YZ400F for dirt cheap recently and I have come to realize that I have been out of the loop so long I need help.

This is my first Yamaha as I have always owen KTMs or Huskys prior to this. I am having a hard time finding quality skid plates, radiator guards, and frame savers for my bike. Any help would be appreciated. I have searched many site but I have come up with very little. The skid plate needs to be Alum, thick and high quality.

Tires, tires, tires. I used to run Mich Deserts and Dunlop 9 something. Is it my imagination or is hard to find good 19" tires??

Thanks in advance,


I am in Southren California so it mostly sand and soft stuff. Not too much rock. I will look into those tires, thanks for the advice !!!
