Put most of my new wrap on this evening, SOR Graphics hooked it up! I am sponsored by SOR for RC racing, he does great work. Swing arm, fork guards and number plates will go on when I put the tires back on it this spring.

What brand over sized radiators did you go with? I'm looking for some that aren't too thick to work with my unabiker guards/braces.

Remove seat, tank, battery, throttle cables, wiring harness to rear number plate, sub-frame, rear shock, top motor mount, and finally carb.

 

Cleaned my carb jets and chopped off the throttle stop screw.

 

Reversed procedure to re-assemble. (sigh) 

 

Damn alum frame bikes.

. Your going to love it

I think I do , it takes some getting used to though.

 

It almost hooks up too well , I mean it can make you look like a total newb when the front end just keeps popping up

when you are not ready for it .

 

When using the rear brake it actually slows you down.....really good on slow steep descents , but also harder to steer with the rear.

 

Hi speed cornering doesn't feel as good as with a 110 size but was expecting that.

 

It did really well on the loose rocky stuff and of course on the soft stuff it was awesome.

 

Seems like a lot of wear for 1 ride but its a soft tire and I rode mostly hard pack and rocks so we will see how it stands up.

Put one of these in .....

 

20140327_214037_zps2asmqrra.jpg

 

I did the recommended break in and adjustment steps on the street and wow this is pretty frickn awesome !

 

Need to adjust it again cause it was draggin a bit the end and stalled once,  but per the instructions it needs to be adjusted it after break in. 

 

Very smooth , the only thing that's weird is the clutch cable seems to have a lot of tension when the clutch is adjusted per Rekluse .

 

Color me excited to try it on some tight twisty trails .

How do you get on an off with all that gear? I can't imagine swinging my leg over or through all that.

 

I'm jealous though, I want to do some overnight rides camping out of whatever I can carry on my bike some day.

Let us know how you like that seat once you get some time on it. My stock one rubs my ass raw after about 5 hours in the saddle.
