Me too. other people are just jealous and haters.

Ryanr- did my aluminum welding with a TIG. Not sure if MIG would be the best. parts are too small and retain too much heat too fast. careful, you might end up with an alminum arch as it warps VERY easy.

Thanks for all the replies. I think I will give the D606's a try. Up North is Northern Minnesota. MN recently made it super easy to get a plate.
On order and arriving next week:
Baja Designs DS Kit. Hope its real nice because it cost a lot.
Vapor Stealth
Shoei Hornet DS (white)
Future Plans:
14T 48T for better rode drivability
DID chain, anyone try an o-ring chain? I read some where they will not fit these bikes.

That's good news. When I Googled DID 520MXV the info I got was that it was a none o ring chain and an o ring could not be run because its to wide and would rub on the case.

I've had very good luck running these tires,(D606) works good up here in Northern MN.

Thanks C-Zulu. I will get a set soon.

Stephenson your bike looks sweet!

DS light kit and vapor install is almost complete. I took lots of pictures while doing the install. By the end of the weekend I will be able to putt around town. I am sure once I test drive it on the street I will be right back in the garage installing the 14T/46T.

case savers?

My buddy just got a '12 CRF450X and he has had no luck finding a set of case guards for this beast.

Anyone running case savers? Brand? Links?

Any help appreciated...
