It started out as loose parts and non running engine, but im happy to say that its all back together and running awesome now. Im more of a 90's man, but i really like this bike. Its a great all round machine.....especially with the few nice mods ive done.

Now that is a bike I'd love to ride! I was on Hondas those years and it seemed like those YZs were better on some tracks. Especially those with full ohlins suspension.

The forks are 89 or 90+?

Steph500 the forks are original 89's......im just using the 91 guards as i couldn't stand getting them damaged. ....the purists won't like it but its hard to find a pair of good forks these days.

That looks superb, well done.
Remember the Chesterfield Yams of this time at a few GPs I visited back in the day, was Donny Schmidt, Bob Moore and Alex Puzar I think on the Chesterfield Yams and often at the starts all 3 of them would be right at the sharp end, they seemed damn rapid off the gate all 3 of those bikes/ riders.
