Anyone spit a key on an 03 after mods?

Pushing sucks and I don't want to do it again. I'll sell the thing.

#2 - Even though the chance of killing a bear with a .38 or .357 or even a .44 is slim, personally I'd still feel better about having that option available to me. You never know, if nothing else you could shoot him in the eyes and even if you didn't kill him he wouldn't be able to see you anymore. Point being at least you wouldn't have to just run and be taken without any other options.
All that said, I would worry more about the laws I'd be breaking carrying in a backpack like that. A concealed carry permit would take care of the feds, but the game wardens kind of frown upon carrying guns into managed areas out of hunting season and without the proper licenses and permits. They can and will take you to jail and confiscate your bikes and gear. At least that's how it is over here anyhow.
Perhaps pepper spray would be a better non-lethal and legal solution for those that ride in areas like that...

Selling this bike would be a grate idea but how could you sleep at night? Yes pushing is no fun, my 03 reminds me of my old amf sportster. Did you loctite the rotor to crank? did this bike shear a key before?
That's easy... 6 shots of Bicardi and a Vicodin.
Buyer beware. What do you think Yammy did to him? Sold him a bunk bike... Gotta pass the buck on to someone else.

I am too cheap to spend the money on the mods and the bike kicks too easy anyway. I just pulled the gear and battery after doing the super glue bit and am halfway thru the second great season and love the bike. But me and PDBLUE are gonna buy the SECOND year run of the CRF450X. Tim
Not me. I'm not all that impressed with the CRF250X so unless the mysterious and ever elusive CRF450X is a major departure I'm staying blue. What's all this talk about legendary Honda reliability? Valve problems, excessive oil consumption, air box leaks, etc. Yamaha definitely screwed up on the '03 but other than that in my experience the 4xx's have been rock solid. Heck the '04 WR upgrade doesn't cost any more than putting Kibblewhite valves in the CRF!
