I would love to get my hands on the parts for that electric starter. Has anybody looked into it yet? That model is so sweet compared to the Baja Designs monster. Can you help?

......If you get a chance someday could you take a picture of the battery placement......

xplore, this is a picture from Dall'Ara Italy for the battery placement:

(sorry for the long waiting.....:lol:)

RC30, here are some links, let us know what you think!

Titanium bolt kits.... www.mettec.com they will custom make bolts, and axles, also.

Super light and strong sprockets and chains.... www.SidewinderSprockets.com

Billet throttle assembly.... www.TERRYCABLE.com

brake stuff..... www.ebcbrakes.com

Idea for rear shock, On one of my sons pit bikes we used a Fox racing air shock, what was remarkable was the fact that it only weighed 1.1 lbs I dont know if they have larger model available, but I know they can be valved for many different setups, and are highly adjustable:thumbsup: check them out at.... http://www.foxracingshox.com/fox_moto/moto_index.htm

Heres a 650 that weighs 275, but given the same attention you are giving yours it would weigh 250lbs or less... http://www.build-stuff.com/CRF650.htm

I hope you can get down below 290 maybe even 275, good luck, once again great job of documentation! :lol: ciao

Ciao rebelventurer and thank you for the links, they are very, very interesting, especially about titanium chain and titanium bolts :confused:.

RC30 have you done anything to the thermostat i took my thermo housing out and made a y piece was 100grams lighter or something nearly 4 ounces.

Weskc35k are there any problem without the thermostat?

I'd try the Uni filter, Much better then a K&N IMO...

Frankstr thank you for the signalling, but I don't like the foam filters, I prefer the cotton and reusable several time filters like K&N, JR, BMC and so on......
