Standard, I've been looking at the newer fenders, and while at first, I thought I'd like to update the look of my bike with the new KX fender it doesn't really match the old rear style, niether does the YZ, I like the 2000"s model YZ fender, Oh yeah I have a black Cyrca vented front # plate I'd be happy to donate, even though the plastics will be white,
If a pair of 2" brass balls isn't working, I doubt that the 3" model will make much difference.

imho in the case of Yamaha, it will look great. Kawasaki, not so much.

i think the new 2011 fender would take away from the retro look

Newer front fender.....all the way. The stock front fender/number plate is what makes the bike look dated.

Keep in mind you'll have to use the new # plate as well

after further consideration, and research, I have changed my mind and my vote is now for the 2011 front plastics ;D

I also agree with that fellow from your FB page, charles, That an updated 03 gastank and shrouds would be the route to take since you're going with a white one anyway

Yeah, Ive been looking into that. I just dont know if devin can do the graphics for a 01, 03, 11 YZ. :)
I'd also wonder how much modification is required.

I'm pretty sure that it's standard fitment, I'll take my 01 # plate down to the yamaha dealer today and line it up with the new one' if they have it in stock' and get back with you on whether it will fit or not
