Yamaha changing colors?

8 posts in this topic

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?

HMMMM, Who? LOL

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.

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.

      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.
