I am thinking about getting the YB6 painted in a race replica colour scheme from the late 80's early 90's.

I was toying with the idea of doing a Loctite YB4 replica as I had an Yamaha FZR painted in those colours in 89.

I am also wondering what other colour schemes teams were using during those times from other series.

Any suggestions or old pictures would be much appreciated or I may end up doing a Tri colour of some description....

I think the YB4 raced at the TT in a few different colour schemes back in the 80's. One year the official Yamaha team were on YB4's not FZR , think it was around 88 ish will check.
So there is an all white Hein Gericke , the blue and white and then the loctite one.

Thanks for the images, a Geoff Johnson replica may still be on the cards..
