Building the ultimate desert racer from the ground up.

So far: Greased the linkage and headset bearing.


IMS Desert Tank with WR PetCock for Reserve
14 Tooth Front Sprocket
520 O Ring Chain
New Grips
Twin Air Air Filter X 2
Scotts Stabalizer

I would get some Works Connection protective guards like radiator braces and some other guards. Then maybe a scotts steering stabilizer.

How about a Fast Flexx bar to soak up even more hits and vibration.Oh ya dont forget Fastway foot pegs no bike should be without them.

How about some Baja Designs lights and a new stator to make them go..
Then you can do some day and night open desert riding..

E line skid plate drill holes for cooling, Zip Ty rear rotor guad, Brp chain guid, hand guards, Zip Ty radiator guard, brake snake and better brake fluid.

That is a good start.

Among some of the other ideas, you will want an 18 inch rear wheel setup w/ 120/100/18 Maxxis Desert IT, Zip Ty carb mod, Suspension revalve for off road, Acerbis uniko handguards. As for the lighting idea, no dice. They don't offer a stator for the 06-07 yz for lights.

ASV levers! A must if you fall down.

I would recomend a 44 rear sprocket if your out in the high speed stuff. I run a 15/44 and still looking for another gear.

I'd start with a skid plate, Rekluse Z-Start Pro, and a good set of hand guards.

Rekluse for desert??? I would take that money and invest in suspension work.

  • grayracer513

I probably would too (I don't use a Rekluse in any case), but the fact that it's a desert race doesn't necessarily mean there aren't some tight, slow, nasty sections. Depends on how mean the organizers want to get.
