Didn't get a chance to actually take her out to ride since it decided to pour down rain today... but here's some pictures I took last night, they aren't the greatest since it was getting dark. Now I just need to order some graphics.

:thumbsup: That works for me... Now I just have to see if XGX can make their Yamaha template graphics with the KTM color schemes.

OKay, finally got some clearer more lit up pictures.... also found a guy selling the Orange Crush front fork guards (what luck?) and those are now on the way to add a little more orange.

(And yes I know my right hand guard is pushed down to far, I'll be fixing that this weekend, I just need to figure out something with the brake line, that is what is in the way right now.)

Yeah it is kinda of annoying in the sense that you can see streaks if you don't get it really clean which looks nasty, but I think I've got that down. With Oklahoma red dirt (mud if wet :thumbsup:) white plastics can become stained rather quickly and white was my other choice... but when I came across the limited edition Orange Crush acerbis plastic side panels I knew which way I was headed.

Some call me a closet KTM fan.... I wouldn't go that far. :lame:

It's one of the Sunstar Z-sprockets that are lighter than a normal steel sprocket but (according to them) just as strong, every other tooth is half the normal width and they alternate back and forth. It isn't as light as the aluminum sprockets I've used, but there's no doubt that it will probably hold up a lot longer. Plus it looks cool with the rest of the theme of the bike on top of that.

I've got one of those sprockets too, it seems to be holding up great. I have it pretty hard in the sand and all other conditions and it isn't wearing yet! The only thing that has wore off is the black coating.
