I use a rule of thumb like 1 hour = 60~100 miles of wear and tear and change the oil every '1,000' miles or less. But I am a woods rider. On a mx track, I would be at every '500' miles or less.

Best stuff like busters/guards is amtter of preference and money. Often, cheap stuff is simply cheap stuff and may not do the job.

Best jet kit is a James Dean. also get either a Kientech or Kouba fuel screw from him too. And yes, a full, open pipe needs jetting adjustments.
