Nice makeover Wayne. Is that what they refer to when say something has been ?pimped?.

What did you have to do to make the tank and seat fit?

I think I used an 82 YZ490 seat and an 82 YZ250 tank.
Had to make a "tongue" bolted to the seat pan to engage seat pan with frame.
Frame hoop is probably slightly different position to 82 frame.
Rear mountings are probably around 5mm farther rearward on the 82.
Tank forward mountings are 10mm wider on 82, made two 5mm packers (fat washers) out of my Mums chopping board  ;D
I did slot the horseshow brackets a little to slide the tank a shade rearward to stop the bars hitting the tank.
Rear of tank held down with a sturdy O-ring.
I think the frame angle around the tank/seat junction is slightly different between the two models, which would explain the mismatches front to rear.
Its close though, and do-able with a bit of persuasion.
I like the fresher look, but I'm also interested in the changes to the riding position, feels good sat on the stand.
Riding it will be the test though.
Have a surplus to requirements YZ490 tank if its of interest to anyone.

It does give it a good look, and with some resourceful thinking and a chopping board it?s achievable in the home work shop. It will be interesting what you think of the riding position.

The 82 YZ250 Shock will fit in if you want some extra adjustability.

I may have to copy you on that style once I get around to the 81YZ250.

Nice work Wayne.

Next project is to convert the front brake to hydraulic actuation. I'm sure you have something off an Airbus that would fit!

Cheers,

Dave R.

Hmmm, might be a bit big...
