Russ, What kind of set up do you have goin on with your brakes? It looks like you have two lines, are you running front and back with your hand lever?
Can't tell from the pictures, but I would guess it's a Dr. D. reverse lever.

I like the tye-dye plastic smile Blue and White looks good lol nice clean bike thumbsup
That's the crappy part about the blue plastic, every little bend shows up, but oh well, I was thinking about painting it anyways, although I do like the gytr graphics kit and seat.

Russ, what size of tires are those, I love the way they look.
They are 23-7-10 front and 22-11-9 rear. I really like the extra clearance, and with the ZPS shocks, it still handles great. :thumbsup:

It's just the style of braided lines I have, instead of one line running to a "T" and then splitting, it runs two separate lines from the master cyl. down, one to each wheel.

I guess they are only an inch bigger than mine then, they look a lot bigger though, that was what I was going to run originally but I could only find 21 and 22's locally so that is what I ended up with.

Were you able to run them through the little hole that held the line original line?

I'm not sure to tell you the truth, I bought it 2nd hand from a guy that had only put a few hours on it before rolling it down a pretty big dune, he sold it to me shortly after so it had a few marks on it already, I've rolled it twice since, once out of the back of my truck and once frontwards into a snow bank, but I didn't notice too many new stress marks.

Yup, just had to feed them one at a time. Also running YFZ dual piston calipers, just in case you were wondering.

You would think Yamaha would have figured it out and corrected the white splotching? After a year or two.
My sons 2000 Blaster was really bad, the Banshee has it, the Raptor has the leasy streaking, but it's got a few.

Painting is on my mind too, especially after seeing Temptations paint job coming together!
Man it looks great! :thumbsup:
