New 2016 owner

New to the forum, and a new owner of a 2016 YFZ. Purchased about a month ago and absolutely love this thing. I'm an older guy so really only planning to trail ride with some friends. Have already done a few mods - installed a trail tech vapor, zip tied a small bike bag under the front hood for a few tools when trail riding and added some Yamaha shock covers just for aesthetics. Look forward to seeing your bikes and all of the info, tips, and wealth of info all of you have.

Nice bike! Now get some dirt and mud on it!

Ride it like your health insurance deductible has been met!

Got the shock covers from Motorsport.com They had the rear available also but I didn't buy it. I think I read somewhere that the rear shock needs a lot more air than the fronts and that's why I didn't get it.

Just a heads up, shock covers ruin shocks.
Put them on before you ride take them off after. Never leave them on the bike.
All they do is hold in moisture and crud.

New 2016 owner-img_1504.jpgNew 2016 owner-img_1495.jpg Got my A-arm skid plates put on and mounted my WaspCam under the visor of my helmet. Headed to Taskers Gap this weekend, hopefully I can get some decent footage and avoid the boulder trail of death I've heard so much about
