Removed the lights, replaced the headlight with Zeta Zcarbon and the tail light with an Acerbis '05 YZ rear fender.

Not today but tomorrow, I'm going to Hapo in the Tri-Cities to sign on the dotted line for my holdover '14.  I'll pick it up either Friday or the following Tuesday after the holiday.  Then the mods. come!!

Just installed Eibach 6.0 rear spring, upgraded from 5.3 stock spring, what a difference. Hope to get out this weekend and give it a real test.

Is re-valving recommended when changing spring rates or simple coil swap enough?
Assuming it's for a heavier rider

I decided to just do the spring first, I'm a woods rider and not into jumping. I'm 230lbs so the stock spring was pretty weak even for my woods riding. Might have to adjust clickers after testing this weekend.

Same thing here, but sticking with a four stroke. I bought a 2013 Husaberg 350

Wristrockit--I've got a ECU tuner with some pre-loaded maps.  My local shop will re-map for free, but I bought the tuner just so I could re-map out in the woods before riding.

Nice bike, but good luck selling it for that price. You can buy a 4 to 5 year old newer with FI for around the same price.

The CA plate and DS kit are worth $800-1500, alone.

It is priced right. The CA license plate adds $800-$1000 in value. The Bike is immaculate with many extras. Fuel Injected WRs were not available until 2012.

These are both great bikes. Anyone that has ever built up a bike or even contemplated it knows that all the extras $$ add up. Price all that stuff out and then fugure in your "free" time and it adds up quick. If I had cash laying around I would have bought a bike like this but I had to buy new so I'll do it myself.
