    450 body conversion

    Yea I did this conversion to my 426 a couple years back. It was a fun project and the bike looked sick once I was done. yea all you need is the tank, subframe, rear master cylinder and the plastics for an '03-'05 450/250f. I fabricated the tank brackets out of some metal that I had laying around in the garage. If I remember right I got the template for the tank brackets from one of the original people who did this conversion. Unfortunately I don't have access to them cuz im currently stationed overseas in the AF. Maybe you can try getting a hold of the template from someone else who has done this conversion. Good Luck!

    07 yz450 to short

    yea i know, I have an 06 and I am 6' 2" and I don't feel cramped at all, although I do have Windham bend protapers. I love the way the bike feels. Maybe you just need to ride it a little more to get used to the feel of the bike:excuseme:

    99 yz400f hurricane conversion

    yea the plastics are the same. I had a 99 yz400f and a 2001 yz426f, and the plastics were the same. Even the exhaust from the 426 fit on my 400. Hope this helps.

    Looking for Places to ride in So. Cal

    hey I'm just wondering why no one has mentioned Johnson Valley? :ride: Its out in the desert on the back side of big bear. I used to ride there all the time, and its great for beginners, although there are a lot of woops out there. I haven't been there in about a year, been going out by randsberg lately.
