Very clean machines!

Love the vented number plate on the YZ. The graphics look mint.

Is the cylinder head on the DT125 painted bronze from the factory?
Hi
No, i just like the DG look, they were originally painted black (DT)
Vented nr plate is original on the YZs back in the day.
The YZ80Js motor was a little trashed when i got it (clutch actuator housing was JB welded (pratleys putty) and its water pump seal was shot. Clutch basket bushing shot with one finger missing on it.
So the 81 aircooled motor went straight in, with slightly modified DT side covers fitted as the original ones were shoddily repaired with fibre glass.

DC plastics has a body kit but with the exchange rate as it is, a definite no no... so it became a resto mod parts bin special... trying to keep everything Yamaha.
