I love those mags because you can paint them gold and they look like early eighties Yamaha GP mags. I have said this before but man I wish I had bought my friends RZ. Toomey pipes. FXR 400/600 wheels, forks and swingsrm with a custom fabbed counter sprocket spacer to get the chain around the tire. I think he had to narrow the swingarm pivot just a tad and it all bolted right together!! I saw that bike in the International Motorcycle Show just as he sold it 13 years ago this past winter. A good friend didn't even notice all the trick stuff on it at first. It looks like Yamaha made it that way which is really what is so genius about the setup!
