Almost sold it due to marital discord. Pulled my head outta my butt, kissed hers, and kept my bike.

Sacrificed my pride for the ride.

I put a BRP upper tirple clamp with rubber mounts for the handle bar perches. Pro Taper evo bars carmichael bend in black. K&N air filter and oil filter. Fresh oil. New brake fluid. I cut a little foam out of the seat. Now i can get my toes on the ground whoa yeah! I've done all of the free and easy mods. and i made it street legal for montana too. I love this bike! took it down to the ST Anthony sand dunes late this winter. It was 9 degrees, had to kick like 100 times to get it started. Crossed at least 1 mile of deep snow to get to some sand. With a paddle tire you can go anywhere (almost) it was still rad can't wait to go back! Now i just need to find a decent exhaust that doesn't kill my funds. rock on you dirtbags

Well....... it wasn't surgery in the end, probs getting the parts in time.

More like a check up.

I fitted the YZ cams and the rear shock, both worked out well. The cams do make a slight improvement in power, combined with the JD jetting kit. The YZ rear shock is better for hard trail riding than the standard WR.

Its now ready for a 700 k extreme trail ride in a couple of weeks and a 500 k desert race in August.

I know the tank isn't something you fitted in your last post, but how do you find the larger tank when you're on the bike? Do notice the weight/shape?

And is that an Acerbis or a Safari tank? I'm swaying between an IMS and what you've got - I know they are a couple of litres or so different in capacity.

If they make a Clarke for your year grab it. It has been great. No difference in weight or handling. The Clarke is a 3.6 and I love it. My bike is an '07 and I was able to keep my original shrouds.

Like an idiot, I waited until tonight to pull the carb for KM jetting changes. We're leaving Saturday at 3:00 AM, and this is what my bike looks like right now.:thumbsup:

That tank is the Safari 16 ltr (4 gal ) and I've had it on the bike from the start. The safari tanks are the same width between the knees as the stock but carry most of the extra fuel lower. I got used to the extra wieght of the fuel pretty quickly and couldn't go back to the one now.

i taught it to fly. i rode at a friend's track. It's the first time i've ever really ridden a track, wow, that is a blast. almost makes me want to go for the YZF, almost. i'm surprised how well the soft suspension handles the jumps. I overshot the 30 foot table and the landing was no problem.:thumbsup:

      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! 

      -Forks revalved by LT-Racing for 210# rider w/gear
      -Mylers oversized radiators and bulletproof radiator guards
      -Folding ARC clutch and brake levers (I have the stock levers as well)
      -3.1 gallon tank. (I also have the stock tank)
      -Seat concepts dual sport seat (also includes the stock seat with guts foam and motoseat seat cover)
      -FMF powercore 4 with silent core/spark arrestor. I've got the stock spark arrestor as well. Racing compliant!
      -Boano racing billet brake pedal with brake tip
      -FJ Fasst co. brake clevis
      -Billet chain blocks
      -upgraded steel oil pump gears- the plastic stock ones are prone to failure
      -Force accessories case saver
      -TMD skid plate (not pictured but will be on the bike)

      Extras:
      Acerbis X-factor handguards
      a few spare plastics pieces
      key switch with plug and play wiring
      extra tubes and rimlocks
      Printed and bound owners manual and service manual
      10mm billet bar risers

      It's a dirt bike so it has some cosmetic damage. Some chipped plastic and scratches on the swingarm. 

      Can send more pictures/info upon request
