This Yamaha is one of the vehicles that we
take on the rides to Moab Utah and any other places where we
can ride trails and climb hills. The bike is entirely stock
engine wise with the exception of a pipe from a YZ426. We have fitted the bike with a Baja Designs kit to
make it street legal, and added the larger capacity fuel
tank for long runs. The handlebars were replaced with Pro
Tapers and it has a Scott steering dampner. We typically go
for 5 days of riding and we ride almost all of the daylight
hours available to us.
If you are a dirt bike rider and have never
visited Moab Utah, you owe it to yourself to get there
soon. There are just miles and miles of open land and
vehicles of all types from bicycles, unicycles, dirt bikes,
4-wheelers, and jeeps are abundant. There is no cost to
ride these areas, but just be sure to stop by the visitor
center and buy detailed maps, or carry a GPS system with
you. The trails can go on for many, many miles. One
notable one, called the White Rim Trail is approximately 105
miles long! Also be sure to carry plenty of water and
snacks as you can use a lot of energy trying to horse your
bike up some pretty big hills at times.
Sites in the Moab area that you won’t want to miss:
Nearly new tires
Some small scratches on fenders etc.
Mirrors, turnsignals, high and low beam
headlight, taillight, brakelight and license plate light for
streetlegal-ness. Everything works and can pass
inspection at any time. These bikes come with non-D.O.T.
tires and you have to change them to get it inspected for
the road. Tires on the bike are almost new and are
D.O.T. tax paid.
I've never had any type of problem with
the engine. Only thing done to it is the removal of
the throttle restrictor and the addition of the YZ pipe.
Plenty powerful !!!!
Seat is in great shape. They made
a vast improvement in this from the 'hard' one on the WR400.
Here is a picture of the long range
tank. It looks big and bulky, but sure comes in handy.
Holds over 5 gallons and that is good for a lot of riding.
Lightweight EXCEL rims
Taillight with Brakelight integrated
Home-made license bracket. The
one that came with the Baja Designs kit lasted about 1 ride.
New chain and sprockets and tires.
Approximately 5 hours of riding on them.
Shot of the YZ pipe. Saves
Control switch for on/off, low/high
beam, turn signals and horn.
Scott's steering dampner. Major
$$$$, but well worth it.

Original Fuel Tank - New, never used.
