Yamaha changing colors?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone noticed that Yamaha has been making their logo red instead of blue on their website?

The last time they did this is when they started putting the blue logo everywhere a year before they started making their bikes blue.

First they steal the 450R label now their color?

I'm starting to like the black anyway, but I even know a Honda rider who does to. hmmmm

Yeah I really think Yamaha should have came up with something other than the YFZ450R.

Everyone always refers to the TRX450R as the "R" or the 450R. Now there will be confusion.

Competition. They didn't wanted Honda to be known as the 'R' quad (i.e. THE race quad).

Personally, I like the regular YFZ more. I'm just not a big fan of FI. We'll see how the new YFZ R makes out though, even though it will be more rider skill then quad.

If you put the same rider on both machines for3 laps, the YFZR would have faster lap times. It is wider and lower which means better handling. From what I have heard the difference in power between the 2 is very noticeable. The R comes with better shocks than the standard too. But i know what you mean about EFI. Although I would love to have it for up here.

    • 1996 Yamaha Timberwolf 4x4 shifter frozen

      I have a 1996 Timberwolf with a stick shifter.  When I got it the previous owner told me it was a transmission issue.  He also said the starter went out.  I got it home and the battery was dry.  Changed plug, coil pack, filter and all fluids. I have it running well, but the shifter does not move. It is stuck in neutral. The reverse lever seems to be all the way to the front. Does anyone know where I should begin?

    • Help Me Identify This Yamaha Please!

      Greetings! ATV newbie here. I just picked up this ATV. I'm told it's a Yamaha Big Bear 350, a 1999. Problem is that the VIN, which should be on the left side of the frame, it's been ground off. So. How do I identify which model number this is? Is it definitely a Big Bear 350? Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    • By davidwestfall
      hey I'm dave westfall I'm new I just became an official member of this site a few minutes ago. Ive been crazy about quads and bikes since I was about 3 and ive always done my home work on them figuratively speaking. I would say for comparison to the common man that I am pretty knowledgeable about them. its been my passion about most of my life. I love talking about quads and bikes so if anyone out there would like to talk with me about mechanical subjects or about person experiences while riding or just shoot the breeze please feel free to chat with me. I'm looking forward to it.
