" IT " the dual sporting of a IT490..

I just finished the rebuild of my XT350,but now I need a crazy fast street legal 2 stroke ( doesn't everybody !!) dual sport.


So a friend of mine at work said he had a running Yamaha 490 with a title in his barn that he didn't want anymore.After a brief conversation with settled on $100,so I went and picked it up today.


It's up on the lift and being disassembled now and the parts list is being made.
My goal is to complete this build for under $1,000.




I know a lot about a few things,a little about a lot of things but I don't know everything about anything !!.

I gotta watch this space.

I, too, enjoy bikes that scare the crap out of me. (said the Aprilia SXV 550 owner)

Eric Gorr head mod... seriously look into it. makes starting SO much easier & really makes dialing in the jetting easier...
had my old 490 ported "for low end" along with the head mod. made for a great torque monster that still ripped on the pipe.

I'd love to have one on the street here...

Awesome! One of my dreams is a dual-sported IT490 or WR500; keep up the good work NortwestRider!

I'm s-l-o-w-l-y converting my '89 YZ250WR to street-legal status as well. When we've got them on the road, we should have a SB5800, blue-smoke filled celebration ride!

I'm in on this thread

When I get my garage, I am going to start looking for a Suzuki TS400, I have a Maico AW250 frame guess you see where I am going with this. Should be a hoot on the Dragon, the only concern I have is all the old farts and codgers following to close just to smell the pre-mix exhuast
