Picked it up last Wednesday and still haven't had a chance to ride it, hopefully soon. Plan on getting a skidplate and seal savers, anyone have any other suggestions....what about suspension setting for a 240 pound desert racer other than to lose 40 pounds.

do a search i think it will explain it better. there is a small hole in the oil filter cavity that lets the oil drain out when u remove the lower oil fiilter bolt, this bolt hole gets stripped out because of metal debris off the clutch. u take a small ball bearing and tap it into the drain hole to prevent the oil from getting into the hole.
