Anyone use Yamahas new set up with the fork gaurds? Or is the light speed, ride engineering unit the way to go for the CR style line?

I am pretty sure that new fork guards don't fit older bikes.
Get the shorter brake line, make it braided too. you will have so much more feel to your brakes, less sponginess.

Heck, I'm just having a hard time bleeding the damm thing!! I Read some old posts but ended up just getting frustrated and threw the junk Yamaha design in the trash. Will order the seal kit and the CR style setup today. I paid $6K for this bike and have put probably $2500 into it just to make it right. I could have bought a KTM !!!
Oh well, guesse I'll open my wallet some more.
