Look'n good! :thumbsup:

How do you like the over sized brake peddle?

Thanks :lol:

The oversized pedal is a huge bonus for me, but it's been a long time since my old pedal resembled anything normal. Second OEM pedal and it's been bent mutiple times in towards the cases. Lot's of trying to bend it back but it would always be really tight to the case and hard to have a positive feel. I actually had a bad crash last year pre running a race, came in hot to a really steep gnarly downhill, missed the rear brake pedal initially and had the uncontrolable descent into a big pile of logs at the bottom. Took the wind out of my sails and some good bike damage I had to Mcgyver up for race day the next day.

So now I have a back brake I can have some confidence in again, long overdue :)

It's actually a little long for my liking, I like to have the front part of my arch of my foot on the pegs while I brake, but with this pedal it's more like my heel is butted up into the peg. But other than that it's a little lighter than stock, seems alot beefier, tighter tolerances in the bushing, has the folding tip with lots of pad room and replaceable cleats which they give you another set :lol:

full rear door , I wasnt that impressed with the wind noise I think mine is worse than others though? so after doing this vid I now stick a tiny bit of foam between the mic and cover and it makes wind sound better

Installed my suspension today after the third revalve by Factory Connection. Unfortunately can't ride tomorrow due to minor helmet malfunction so out on the Superduke instead. Bummer. Rode bike down alley doing nose wheelies and jumping up and down on the pegs and I think they may have it right this time.

I am jonesing to ride this thing!

      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!

      Hopefully I will not have to make any more posts after this but I have questions about the 04 wr snorkel. Before it's suggested yes I did read the free mod guide on super Moto junkie and he shows the snorkel being removed but does not explain or show how. I tried removing the two bolts on top and the battery but it still doesn't even budge after that, is it molded in place? Also what is deemed as a clean or dirty air filter? I don't know what is supposed to be normal, upon looking at mine there was a good amount of thick black grease that I wiped out so I have no idea how long this one has been used or last cleaned. I bought a no toil filter to replace the current one since I just did a rebuild and why not have a clean one in there. But if someone can enlighten me on details it would be much appreciated.
