2) Geared too tall for tight woods and technical stuff ( tall, tight, woods all good)
3) The seat is a bit hard ( tell her to relax)
4) Her beautiful blue plastic doesn't stay beautiful for long ( should'nt have put wedding ring on her)
5) What's with the water pump leak! ( some do that when they have been used a bit)
6) She's a sweet ride ( what's your bike like?)

The A.I.S. kit will solve all the decel popping. It's very easy to install and very clean looking.

) 2) Geared too tall for tight woods and technical stuff ( tall, tight, woods all good)
Stock gearing is too tall, and the stock chain is too short to fit a 52 tooth rear sprocket.
I did the Sawmill Enduro yesterday, the majority of which was tight single track and hills, I was rarely out of first gear. I prefer gearing lower and using second and third, that way it is not as easy to kick the bike into neutral. I did that a couple times yesterday and always at a bad time...

No, but seriously, shes way heavier than then my beloved 2 strokes. Also the jetting seems to be a little more critical for proper running. On the old 2 smokes once you dialed them in they seemed to run forever without popping, hard starts, or excessive heat. Other than that I am truly in love.
Love running pump gas, love that smooth torque and it seems that if you ride it right the weight just seems to disappear!

If you do all the free stuff and put a pipe on the bike it is a FAST bike. My 03 ran good but had a pipe with a Promoto baffle. I t was nearly as fast as my 05. My 05 has a WB E2 slip on.

It's important however, to remember that all that heat coming from the radiator and motor means the cooling system is working!! So when I feel that heat but get no boil over I know she is working great.
