Maybe there's some backdoor factory parts in your future? Now THAT might be some trick stuff!

I've seen more than one die-hard blue rider make the switch.

My dad always used to say "never say never" and I have always kept that thought at the forefront of my mind. I can say with the utmost certainty that I won't get off a blue bike or my Yamaha Royal Star Venture or my Yamaha Rhino or my Yamaha outboard as long as the current owners of Yamaha of Cucamonga are still the owners of that place.

Ernie,
You ever give any thought to using any other Yamaha products than your bike? I hear the pianos and R/C helicopters are pretty good in their fields. You seem to have too many different manufacturers for your leisure activities now.

I guess I shouldn't say that since my bike isn't done I am borrowing one of Robert Wright's Hondas to race this weekend. Its temporary though so maybe that doesn't count.

Just put some Showa forks on your Yamaha (like the "factory" was doing). I have a set of 47's that I put on my 125 yz that I love. It didnt have the latest KYB's on it though. I think I like any of the 2002 and on Honda Showas better than anything up to and including the 2005 KYB's on the Yamahas, which have been changed a lot for 2006/2007.

I understand shop loyalty, and how good it is to have someone you can trust with something as important as your riding. For years I rode Kawasakis for just that reason.

The new KYB 06/07 stuff is really good, but basically because they built them like Showas.

Nope that isn't a joke at all. Albeit your bike is ANYTHING but stock, but dang that thing is fun. I would love to have one JUST like it.

That thing flat out RIPS!
