New Yamaha front fender
« on: October 28, 2018, 04:18:05 AM »
I?m sure you guys are aware but I just bought a new Oem sky blue fender from Babbitts Yamaha. $23.00. I have bought some in the recent past .. now I have two on hand. Thought that was weird, they must have made a ton of em.. no rear  . we couldn?t get that lucky.. Thought I?d share..

They are sometimes available on back order here in the UK.

?56.00 plus tax and shipping at the moment

So is it still possible to get a rear fender for an 83 IT 490?

I would doubt it.
Front Fender is used across a wide range of models.
Fender Dave quoted is from IT200S parts list.
IT200S is only IT parts list available from our supplier.
IT200S Rear Fender is listed as "no longer available"
IT490 Rear Fender is NLA from CSMNL too.
Stuck with something of poor quality from good old DC I'm would think.

I've had good results with UFO plastics.

Fenders (MUDGUARDS!!!) and Number board on my 250 are UFO.
Fit ok and have lasted 4 seasons.
Sidepanels are DC, they cover the frame and have somewhere to stick a race number. To be fair they have also lasted 4 seasons.

They must have gone downhill like everything else. The UFO fenders on my YZ465 are almost 20 years old and have survived many get offs and collisions with inanimate objects. It's no garage queen but isn't a POS either.
