I didn't do this today, but within the past week. New top end going in after 70 hours of MX use - waiting on new head bolts (cam chain only has 12 hours on it), & a new decal kit :

Gave it a bath after yesterdays ride. Lubed and adjusted the chain while it was clean. Nothing exciting.

I wouldn't say so...
I put one of those billet ones on my carb, after a lack of maintaining my hot start I went to take it off and it was seized on(plastic wont do that) and it cracked the outside of the carb where of screws in rendering the carb useless. Not fun on the day before a race! I would use a little bit of anti-seize on it and check it every other month...TRUST ME!
