The total package shown was $280.00 including return shipping U.S.P.S. to Michigan.
It cost me $35 to send them U.S.P.S. to Economy so using your number 100 & that number 35 to send back I have roughly 145 into the misc. parts shown. To expensive? What's your opinion?

The parts look very, very nice! Seems not unreasonable to me, given the hazmat issues involved in plating.

Looks great! Can't wait to see the finished product.
IF it isn't one thing, it's another.

that is no joke on the price,not bad at all considering the hazards of chrome plating and the things that goes with it.

OK guys, I'm assembling the wiring tonight and have a couple of questions. :S
I did take pic's when in disassembly mode but they don't show the dark green wire leads very well so the manual shows one going to the flasher unit which I don't have at this point. I have 2 of these leads in the headlight bucket. My question is, does the lead from the flasher unit have a double lead on it? Or have I missed a connection here?

The two Dark Green leads are sticking straight up

I don't have the diagram for your bike but traditionally the flasher would not be located in the headlight but under the tank/seat.

Dark green is also traditionally the right turn signal color that connects to the right turn signals and the flasher indicator in the gauge... it comes out of the turn signal switch.

The flasher generally has a brown (6v power) and brown/white. Brown/white goes in to the turn signal switch and is connected to the dark green when the switch is set to right turn.

Hope this helps... Yamaha could have changed the wire colors on your bike but in my experience they kept the same colors fairly consistent between bikes and years.

To add to Marks response. The brown with white stripe feeds the turn signal selector switch. From that switch a brown and dark green for you left and right turn signal and both have female multiplugs in headlight- to plug in the turn signal light and also the indicator to match up to the light on your gauge. I just did this a couple weeks ago in my dt400b. If you have a 6volt tester / jumper the brown and brown with white stripe together- where the flasher plugs in the harness in the big boot by the ignition coil- than u can test your flasher selector switch on the two plugs in the headlight and rear fender main harness. Another tip would be to plug in your headlight - and test with headlight plugged in. I had everything workig fine til i plugged in yhe headllight than i plugged in the headlight and my error in wiring showed up. I hope this is not to confusing.. :huh: BTW search for the winker topic on this site and that will be a cheap flasher solution. I added that about a week ago. Need to have turn signal lights plugged in left and right to test system properly.

If it moves and shouldn't , use duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use liquid wrench.

Sorry.... I can't recommend Economy Plating if you want your parts to be perfect.

If you don't mind pits and defects, they are OK.

If you don't want pits and defects.... they can't do that, unless you want to pay a whole LOT more.


I am off to look for another chrome plating company.

I would be interested in what you come up with for a plating co.
I did notice a few chrome plated pits when reassembling the forks.
