klx125 air boot
Cannon racecraft shock spring (5.8)

Sweet! Nice job brother!:thumbsup:

I like what you did with the intake..
Did you use an existing one and slice it?

gman255... I used the stock xr intake and remove the rubber... after that I found some pieces of aluminum tubing and weld it to the flanges... look that this will do the job... will see in future if it will hold fine... thanks for your comment...

Nice!

I like how you notched the brake pedal...... do you think it might need to be reinforced?

I dont think it need to de reinforced... this is the steel brake pedal and it was very strong even with the notch... the only problem that I have for now is that the brake pedal hit the footpeg when braking and I am not sataified with the braking power... I am looking for idea to resolv this... any idea someone...:thumbsup:

I thought you were making a chopper when I glanced at the picture of the frame under the motor mount picture. Then I realized the frame was upside down:bonk:
