I am a little young to remember guys racing the YZ465's, but I do remember Jim Holley, Doug Dubach, and Jeff Stanton (before he was a part of Team Honda) racing the Yamaha YZ490's.
I came up in the Rick Johnson era. Ricky was the man when I was a child.
Boy oh boy could Jeff Stanton ride his Privateer/Yamaha Factory Support YZ490 built by Pro Circuit. I think Jeff Stanton rode that YZ490 better then he rode his Factory Honda CR500 (but not the 250).
This YZ465 project has me so excited. Everyday I can't wait to get off of work so that I can come home and tinker in the garage.
