    I was just going to look up the cleaning process, and you saved me the effort. Thanks!

    Also, it is good to know that the filter sludge does not look out of line.

    The thought was to make it more of a subdued hunting vehicle. It would sure be embarrassing if I had to walk home because I couldn't find my bike

    I am starting to like the color scheme as it is, so it may be a while before I get the motivation to change it. Still not crazy about that red seat though.

    Try the hunter camo Orange color scheme. Fits in with hunting and you can find it.

    In addition to the protection afforded by the hand guards there are also shorty folding hand levers that can deflect out of the way in a tip over.
    I was thinking I had seen a folding brake pedal on this forum, but I was probably mistaken. I had not heard about the folding hand levers, and this seems link an interesting option. Is there much potential to break levers with the hand guards installed?

    I am not sure how back-country I plan to go. The trails I want to explore near my home are within the TW range. I'll see how much range anxiety I get once I start riding.

    Congratulations on your most excellent Rainbow Warrior.

    The colors will grow on you.

    They did for me.

    You know the "Rainbow Warrior" is a signature TW like the "Black Widow" also. Not everyone gets that privilege. I need to come up with a name for our twins.

    Welcome , nice machine. Folding rear brake pedal: Try researching other models of Yamaha off road bikes or ATV , this may assist you , it works for folding shift levers.

    Hey congrats on the new bike! Looks really clean and we'll taken care of. It's cool that you found a 1994 model seeing as that year holds a lot of milestones for you. I'm digging the color! Do you mind if I steal your " list of things to change"? Good list..

    hand guards were already on my bike when i got it, (and there was plenty of evidence of it having dropped) i've never broken a lever with them (and i've dropped it plenty).
    if you click on either of the links in my signature you can find help and suggestions as to the many mods you have listed.

    they are great bikes, enjoy yours.
