The plan is to send the head and cylinder off to Eric Gorr and have the "head mod" done along with some slight porting. New plastics and seat cover is also in the works. I figured I would post up some pictures of it, I still have not seen it in person but my buddy picked it up for me and said the guy started it in 3 kicks and ran ok but not great. I should have it within the week and I am looking forward to it. Here are some pictures of it my buddy took for me. Any input from yz490/IT owners would be great.


Great Buy!! Theres some 490s for sale here western New York. $1000 for each!!
