New DNA wheels. SWEET! Also just replaced original chain and sprockets. Got to be a record for an '05. Racing on Sunday for the first time since last July, can't wait. Haven't posted a picture in a while, hope this works.

i put the horn and mirror back on after busting them both off in the fall. This time i put them onto the bark busters with hose clamps. Both the horn and mirror are completely useless, but they keep the cops happy and now they're out of the way for zooming through the trees. Oh to ride in trees again. one more week.

Its a UFO plate holder. Very cheap and solid construction.

Ordered it today. thanks to you and bigcoop for the recommendation. Is that a oem fender and what model year is it for? I like the pointed style but I don't know if they can be made to fit a 2001.

same question here, i hate the crooked back fender with the light on top. I do have a very nice plate holder though. it's just a tiny piece of metal that bolts on underneath, you can't even see it.

I had the rear 756 replaced with a Kenda Milville this morning. Loaded her up and rode it for 2 hours.

Between the pipe and the rejet and free mods plus the tire...this thing is loads of more fun. It pulls all the way through the gears now. The stock exhaust really had this thing choked up.

went riding with a couple guys on quads and got mud all over me and my bike. I had quite the job cleaning, but i was still faster, even in the mud and water crossings.

      So I just did a rebuild on my 98 Yz80, and it wont start. At first, we put the gaskets on wrong, so coolant was leaking everywhere. After we fixed that, and put everything back into place again, piston went up and down smoothly, and it has great compression. The problem is, it does not want to start. Im not really sure what to do, because before, my compression was very low, so I did a rebuild, but now it still does not start. So I need help.

      Nice used vintage Don Vesco desert fuel tank for the Yamaha TT/XT500's. Removed from a '79 so may not fit the earlier models. In great shape, not sun-baked, Vesco petcock, Preston Petty cap and all mounting hardware included. Price is OBO plus shipping.

      Selling my immaculate 2016.5 KTM 250SXF Factory Edition with only 9.6hrs on it since new. Has been vet ridden and cared for. I have a clean title in hand for the bike. Bike has the following...
       -SMPro Platinum wheelset and new Dunlop MS3 tires with only a few rides on them ($1000 wheelset)
       -D.I.D ERT2 chain only a few rides
       -Orange Renthal sprocket, and 13T countershaft sprocket only a few rides
       -Mapped by Tokyo Mods for U4.4 (still have standard map also for pump gas)
       -WP AER 48mm air forks
       - FMF 4.1 titanium slip on muffler
       Bike will come with stock header pipe but still have the FMF factory Titanium slip on. Will also take off the titanium bolts and Renthal bars and put back on the stock ones. Will aslo come with triangle stand, manual, clean title, extra twin air filter, 14T countershaft sprocket, WP air pump for the forks, half a can of U4.4 fuel, and KTM tool kit. NO TRADES. NO FINANCING. NO LOWBALLERS. Bike is in showroom condition and the Factory Editions are very hard to find used in this kind of shape or new. $6800 price is FIRM.

      I added skateboard grip tape to the frame by my pegs and on the subframe for extra grip.

      I just ordered a piston kit for my 1998 yz80, and it does not fit into my cylinder. I can't really remember if its a 47.5 mm or 47, i'm pretty sure it's a 47.5 but it just does not fit into my cylinder. My cylinder does have a big groove in it, so do I need a new cylinder for it to fit, or a new piston? Please respond ASAP!
