Hi all,

I just realized that although I have been reading a lot from this forum for a while, I had never posted anything.
So hello all, my name is Marcelo, live in San Jose, and got my WR back in July.
I'm fairly new to motorcycles in general, and this is my second motorcycle. So far I absolutelly love it.
I also like to customize anything I have, so I changed color and graphics in order to make it more my own. Here is my white WR250R

Thanks very much!

The white plastics are genuine Yamaha plastics, not very expensive, in total I think I spent around $150 for everything from:

The 2010 WR250X came in white, so all you gotta do is order plastics for that model/year.

The stickers are a different story. Initially what I wanted is to have a white WR like the ones sold in Europe. The plastics were easy to get, but could not find any place to buy the graphics. Then found that there is a lot of after market stickers en ebay for our bikes, but didn't like any. Then I saw a 2015 YZ450F and loved the graphics, but they wouldn't fit our bike, so I decided to design my own based on that other bike.
Found a company that make car stickers and sent them a file with my design and a week later a got my custom graphics. The price was actually pretty good too, the whole set of stickers only cost me $52, way lower than the cost original Yamaha stickers. I even made some matching stickers for my helmet!
And since I was making my own custom stickers, I went all the way and even had my avatar name on them. Below are some more pictures.






I'll be happy to help you with having your stickers made, it's pretty fun for me and I already did all the hard work of measuring all the plastics and creating templates. The only thing I'm not sure though is if I want somebody else with my exact same design Very happy .... but we'll see

Thanks again!

The seat is a Seat Concepts. Better than the OEM, but not as great as I expected.
