I just installed my Birthday presents. SUB mounted Scotts stabilizer, BRP clamps, EVO bars, Garmin GPS with Ram mount and hard wire kit. :cool: This stuff works great on a plated dirtbike.

Just ordered some Unibiker radiator guards and a SDG tall seat and still need to install the last few parts and pieces I bought for it.

Checked the oil and antifreeze, adjusted the chain, and rode to the Arctic Circle. I've lived near it, worked above it, flown over it, but it was my first time standing on it, let alone on a bike.

FINALLY finished installing the new bars (ProTapers) and re-installling the handguards after bending the stock Renthals looping the bike a few weeks ago.

:cool:

Ouch! 50 year old bones don't take too kindly to that sort of thing. I know....just look at my avatar.

Stared at it and wished that Buchanan would hurry up and get my rear spokes trimmed to fit the 2.50 wheel thats taking a nap next to my bike. FYI 2.50 wheel has a deeper drop center than a 2.15 wheel so if you ever decide to replace rims with wider ones and DIY be careful ask about spoke to rim

dimensions.

So how does the new seat compare to stock?

Well, haven't had a chance to try this one yet, but I've also got Renazco's on my DRZ and 450 EXC and they make a huge difference. The stock WR seat was about as bad as the other two stockers. Well, the KTM was actually worse. :worthy: I've done a 250 mile day on the DRZ and my butt wasn't hurting a bit. :busted:

Did my first oil change. A bit of a chore to remove the skid plate and 3 drain bolts, but worth it I guess. I used Amsoil 20-50 Motorcycle. I figure I'll change it once or twice a month depending on how much I ride. Cheap engine insurance in my book.

Adjusted the clutch engagement. Wore during break in I guess.

Stiffened up the suspension front and rear. I'll have to get a new rear spring, due to my 280#, to get my sag close to right. May have to re-spring the front also.

      Used PRO TAPER platform 2.3 pegs with standard height inserts. These are removed from a 2011 YZ 125 but should fit all current era YZ and YZF's. Double check before purchasing. I just sharpened the teeth up a bit with a file. These retail for $190 and most online retailers have for $170. You can buy replacement inserts that are higher or lower if desired. 
      Taken from Pro Taper's site:
      The 2.3 Platform Pegs feature a unique replaceable cleat design for unrivaled customizability. All necessary mounting hardware is included, as well as the standard magnesium-colored cleats. Replacement cleats incorporate ProTaper’s exclusive Traction Arc Design and are available in various heights, colors, and materials to directly suit each rider’s needs.

      Hello everyone, been looking around on here for a couple weeks and figured I'd finally drop my question for some feedback. Looking for a bike, obviously or I'd be on a different forum, somewhere in the 250/300 range. Heres some info about me and the typical riding I'll be doing..
      My specs: Male, 190 lbs, 5'10, 28 years old. 
      Riding Experience: Two wheel mostly street, R6, R1, Harley etc. I've ridden most of em. Off road has been mostly quad, except one trip down the trails on a Yamaha 450 2t (holy moses that was quick). Ridden quads for a few years, Polaris 850, Yamaha/Honda 250's (banshee style) at Silver Lake and on trails. Trails we ride are in Grayling which are a mix of hard pack and loose sand (tank trails). 
      Planned Riding: the above mentioned sand dunes and trails. Doubt I'll ever touch an actual Mx track. Will use a paddle tire when in the dunes. In my mind I've narrowed it down to the KTM 250/300 XCW or Yamaha YZ250X. Not really a Honda fan. 
      Not trying to open another KTM vs Yamaha thread, Ive read plenty of those. Just looking for some feedback and ensure these are the bikes I should be interested in and if 2 stroke should be my route? I like the easy maintenance but also like the idea of fuel injected 4t. I don't want to be beating the heck out of a 4t in the dunes and turn it into a bigger $ pit than these toys are already. I would prefer having a headlight, 250X does not come with one while both KTM's do (unless I go Yamaha 4t with the WR250f). Thanks for your feedback..

      I am looking for a YZ125 and have found a 99 for 1300 and an 03 for 1600 both in pretty nice condition. Obviously going to negotiate the prices down however I was wondering which one you guys would suggest. Ive been doing research and know that the 03 is lighter with a modified frame though it has a 5 speed. The 99 motor is well liked for the power and reliability.
      I will be doing strictly trail riding so whats the better option here?

      So I was cutting my neighbors lawn when i came across this bike in my neighbors barn. They said i could have it for free and i thought it would be a great thing to try and fix up. But after looking at it and doing some research i cant find what it actually is. I believe  it is a 1985 YZ 125, but i am not sure. Anyone know what it is and where i might be able to find some parts for it? Or if it would be better just top sell it for parts. Thanks!

      PRICE DROP
      For sale is my 2015 Beta 350RR. 2734 miles and 120 hours. Just had some top end work done by Sierra BMW and BETA. Fresh air filter and oil. This is an awesome dual sport bike. Or you can strip the lights and turn signals and have a single track weapon, your choice. This bike will do it all. Unfortunately, I've been riding my 2 stroke lately and don't have room or the time to maintain 2 bikes. My loss is your gain! Front tire only has a few rides on it, the rear needs to be changed. Beta's are super reliable and amazing machines that rival KTM and Husky!

      -Mylers oversized radiators and bulletproof radiator guards
      -Folding ARC clutch and brake levers (I have the stock levers as well)

      -FJ Fasst co. brake clevis
