Dude if you watch Yves Demarie #22 on the first lap, he "scrubs" so hard at about the 5:45 may have been a mistake but he saved it and if you pause it he is pretty "scrubbed" on the takeoff. Also, Emig came close to death second moto when he ... more »

What finishing polish do you suggest using? I'm happy with a 92 RM tank I restored but seeing your work I'm motivated to touch it up a little.

Sad story here. Sucks that the cops have the right to do this to a dog that is just doing his loyal dog duty:-(

I'm having a hell of a time finding anything for a 92 RM 125 I'm restoring....can anyone refer me to a company/guy that can still make graphics for this old of a bike? I know it's pretty much the ugliest OEM look ever but I like it and I want it to look

Thanks...your right about getting what you pay for:-) I haven't bought a used bike since 1990 and that was a local pro kids bike that my dad looked into so I guess I'm going to most likely put it down on a new bike. The wife has been on maternity leave

Yeah the 06-09 YZ's are good...I had a 2007 YZ 250f. Thanks for the feedback. I'm actually stuck between wanting to save for a new 450 or just buying a good used 125 and a little 50 for my son and having fun until I can really afford a brand new 450

Thanks....kind of want a "project" bike I can make brand new again and not initially spend too much money on.

New thread Buying used bike advice? 11/11/2013 3:35 PM

Thinking about buying a used 450 to hold me over till next year (buying a new 450 hopefully:-) and always thought the YZ 450's were good but what's the oldest you guys would go back? Saw a few 00-04 YZ426/450's on Craigslist and I remember them being ... more »

These 1991 RM's were raced just like the picture. I went to Anaheim that year and the radiator shrouds, side panels and fenders were all "Flo" yellow....I think it only lasted a couple races? The Honda's and Kawasaki s were also decked out with Florescent
