Is there any info available that tables the changes in bodywork of the yb6 models( which number bikes wear what bodywork?)ie: Round taillights, square taillights etc.
Also at which number bike they went from Genesis motor to exup?
I'm a newbie so excuse me if I'm asking silly questions!
Any info appreciated.

Hi. The details you want are all in the Sarti book...which isn't very helpful if you don't have a copy! YB6's were all non Exup with round lights. Then they released the YB6 Exup with square rear lights and bigger headlights. These were given frame numbers starting YB8...which is essentially because the YB8 is the same but with changed colour scheme. The YB8 finally morphed into the YB8Evo, with Furano style bodywork and lights plus different forks. The limited edition Tuatara was a YB6 engined bike (on YB6 frame no) with fuel injection. It also had narrower fairing. The Furano is the essentially the YB8 with fuel injection and trick Ohlins forks and some other detail changes (carbon fibre mudguards etc.). And as you can imagine for a small volume manufacturer there were minor and some major changes across life cycle...for example the Furano came with either Weber Marelli or TDD fuel injection ECU's.... As you can tell a bit of a mine field.
I have a copy of the Sarti book and cam PM you more details.... also what country are you in as happy to chat if it helps.
Cheers,
Dave
