I was thinking of a few things: New exhaust /silencer. I'm still running the stock one here and recently had it off and was surprised at how heavy it was. Any recommendations for a lighter one that will be good in desert racing? I mostly race Hare and Hounds and a few Hare Scrambles, with some occasional MX track. New gas tank. I'm currently running something like 4 gallons I think...I was considering getting an IMS YZ desert tank which is 3.4 gallons. That would require new shrouds (which is fine...mine are hammered), and a new seat...however would that also require a new sub-frame (in order for the seat to attach properly)? Any other ideas in this regard? Removing headlight, odometer, coolant reservoir. Opinions on stock forks? So far they've done me okay, but whenever I ride a bike that has more "race" type forks I wish I had some. I would just buy a new bike and make fewer mods, but I've already put a few pretty pennies into this one over the years, plus I happen to really like it...the thing is indestructible I swear. Any other ideas? Also a non-related question - it's always had a ton of compression but lately there doesn't seem to be much. I've been told maybe I need to replace the piston or something - any ideas on what's wrong? As a result it's become a little harder to start which is frustrating - used to always fire right up. Thanks for the help!
