I've been busy doing things to the Yamaha. I ordered black body panels from Rockymountainatvmc so I can get rid of the blue and white color that I never really liked. So far I got everything changed except the rear fender which is supposed to be in Wednesday, and the white plastic thing that surrounds the headlight.
I couldn't find a black rear fender for a WR450 and I looked all over the Internet. So I ended up ordering a black rear fender for the YZ450. It looks like it will fit just fine but it doesn't have a taillight like the WR 450 has. So I'm hoping I can put my taillight on the YZ fender and everything will work out okay.
The white plastic thing that surrounds the headlight has been a problem and I can't find one anywhere. So I did something I was hoping I wouldn't have to do which was paint it black, hey I just had a flashback to the Rolling Stones singing Paint it Black..... Okay I'm back now, I've never had much luck with rattle cans but that seemed like my only choice at the moment so I bought some Krylon SuperMaxx gloss black and sprayed that puppy. It was a hot windy day today and definitely not a good day for painting outside but I just wanted to get it done. It didn't turn out terrible but I certainly won't be pointing it out and bragging on it.
My other project for the day was putting on a ignition switch to turn the motorcycle on. Being a dirt bike it didn't come with an ignition switch it just has a button you push and it cranks right up, so its not a good idea to leave it sitting in front of Walmart. I got the switch wired up so all I have to do now is find a convenient place to mount it . I could've finished it but every afternoon thunderstorms blow across the RV Park so I had to call it a day.
