Thanks and i'll get to it soon hopefully. There are a couple of threads on these bikes with typical questions arising.

mine weighs 415# with 4 gallons fuel in it, definitely a pig if you lose momentum or drop it.

The stock exhaust does touch the swingarm but i find that the exhaust tip is malleable enough that it doesn't bother me. i don't think the exhaust can proper hits the swingarm, especially when you account for race sag. The stock exhaust is very heavy and therefore very quiet which is really important to me. what difference is 415# vs 410#?

my mud guard needs some work

my motocross tire has gone about 1000 miles and was almost half gone when i mounted it

pic of failed mudguard and exhaust considerations. the exhaust tip is just a thin valence and could be resected easily
