Thanks, I love to read these old tests. I also have a YZ 490 T from 1987, and it is nice to read some tests in favor of the YZ 490s, it is not all about pinging and jetting problems.  :)

I enjoyed the read ! The yz490 sounded good in this article , when I thought they were a pinging bugger of a thing?
And I can read it again tomorrow if I forget the details 😃
But I've got to remember where it is 😳
