Ive seen it done before, How do you make a later yz model look exactly like a newer yz with the airbox? Would I just put a newer airbox and 16 plastics on it?

All depends on what year bike you're talking about. 2002 and up you'll just need a couple things. I believe one of the online stores sells a kit with everything you need. Pre-2002 bikes you'll need to do a bunch of modifications in order to get the newer look. I have no idea what is entailed in terms of modifications in order to make those older bikes look modern.

Edit: 2002 and up Conversion Kit. Only thing missing is the front plate and lower fork guards.

Like I mentioned, it depends what year your YZ is. 2002 and up yes, older than that it takes modifications.

If it’s a 2002 or newer, Rocky Mountain sells a kit with air box and all plastic

If you're not mixing gas, you're not haulin ass.

You just have to rivet the air box to the intake boot. It's super easy. And riveting is strangely rewarding.

When I did my 08, I bought genuine plastics off of Yamaha, better quality & fit plus you'll have to get an OEM air box anyway but if you're on a budget.....

On a similar note, what is involved in updating the plastic on a 2007 YZ85 to the current style? I have searched for an aftermarket kit but haven't had much luck. Thanks

It is basically the same bike, so I’d guess all you need is a gas tank, air box and plastics kit.
