How is the fit for the Devol rad braces. I have only been able to see pics that don't go into that much detail. Do they appear to be strong as the Works Connections? The Devol is the only manufacturer for the '06 that I can find so far unless you know of any others. Thanks

the devol ones fit nice and look even better, in my opinion the coolest looking ones I've seen in a while. I will post pics asap I promise, i want to show it off it's a damn shame that beautiful bike sitting in the garage with nobody to look at it :thumbsup:

p.s. Devol also claim's that along with better protection they also have better air-flow!

Anyone use one of the K&N air filters yet? They sure look cool (no cage, no backfire screen), like putting a muscle car air filter into your dirt bike. Supposed to have much better flow, haven't heard any first hand reports yet though.

I have been using a K&N for a while, its the only filter i have used other than the stock one and its really no fair comparison, it flows extremely well. But that is on my 03 but i doubt there is a difference between 03 and 06 using one. This thing hauls you and almost hear the air coming into your engine; if you ride in sandy areas there is the possibility of fine dust getting through and hurting your valves.

Which sprocket did you get? I just got my blue Renthal (50T) in on Friday and put it on with a gold RK chain. Looks sweet!

K&N's flow more air, that is true, but only because the filtering media isn't a fine as a normal foam air filter. If your worried about running it in a dusty environment, maybe you should re-evaluate your choice of filters as any kind of dirt, no matter how fine it is, that gets past the air filter really accelrates the valve wear.

Now, where are those pics? I'm curious to see the Devol radiator guards. I guess it's like everything else from air filters to radiator guards, some like them, some don't...

Sure Blue, kind of weird to tear apart a brand new bike but it's the best time to do it. I was wondering how much grease was on the bearings from the factory? Also, why did you use the 175 main when most are using the 170 main? I'm just curious if you have had any experiences that caused you to use it rather than the smaller 170. Are the ProSeal air filter seal the magnetic drain plug the same as the 03-05's or is it specific to the 06's? One other thing is I used the TM design slider on my 03 450 and it made so much noise, I took it off and use automotive goop with some coarse foam under the stock slider to prevent the chaffing. I had used them previously with great luck but I think when they changed the design to where you could install it without pulling the swingarm, I think it made it no better than the stock one since it moves around more than the prior design.


Doc Fletcher, can a chiropractor do work on himself? You must be in demand at the track. The bike is looking good, no unnecessary bling to make it look excessively bling'd, very tasteful application of the bling.
