I keep hearing about this penguin lid but can't find pictures of it anywhere.
I do LOVE the OEM lid though so that's the one I'm going with for myself but for wifey I might get her a different one.

Thanks, might be an option for my wife. Will show her tonight and see what she thinks. Where do I order one? I see their website but nothing on the lid.
Personally, I like the stock body better.

If you are not happy with the available options, B5M bodies are pretty close. IIRC a friend of mine put a Silencer on his YZ-2 the other day.

Oh I'm QUITE happy with the stock body. My wife is just getting into this and I did my daughter's RB5 Scoopless body and she like the look of that lid much better over the blocky cab forward bodies. I agree most cab forward lids are pretty fugly but there are a few that are stunning and the YZ-2 is at the front of the line there for me.

The Penguin I suspect she will like. I did find it on fleabay but it wasn't easy. Nothing under Penguin OR YZ-2 body. I had to perform a google search for images to find the one listing.

And of course, she now tells me the Azarashi Lid which is the most difficult lid to get.
Anyone know where to buy one in the states? I tried their eBay store but is shows nothing at all and even a google search turns up Zilch.

Oh the Penguin body is nice. It reminds me of a Schumacher KF body, which isn't a bad thing. The stock body is sweet, I was just curious about the options.

Hey Mes, thanks but that's almost $50 for a throw away product. Gonna contact them regardless but it's a steep price IMO.

USD 27 for the body and USD 8 for shipping does not add up to 50, right?
