He ran a few days of the CO600 like this on a KTM 500, plenty of good riders were struggling to keep up.
I cant imagine riding singletrack with a passenger! It would be neat to have Mike L.'s riding skills for a day!

I spent a day riding around the Garrahan's property on the back of Brian's bike when we were shooting an ad for Maxxis. Probably faster than I've ridden many trails by myself.

Anybody have an extra 15T countershaft sprocket laying around? Only asking before I order a new one because so many people take them off their new bikes, but I need one for my street wheelset. Thanks.

There's an idea for a 'take-offs' section in this thread. So much stuff gets taken off, and disappears. I may need a DOT rear plate holder and signals for an inspection at some point soon.

Hey Ned,

You might have already touched upon this (I couldn't find anything), but you mentioned with your '08 & '09 you plugged the carb/crank breather and left the '10 stock. When you plugged the vent, did you route it up with filters on the end? I'm on the fence of what path to take with my '08 and I am just curious what more experienced pilots have done.

I put an inline filter in place and it broke without my knowing, so be careful with that.

This worked fine and despite water crossings and so on, my engine suffered no ill effects.

On my most recent bike, I have done nothing. Oil consumption remains unmeasureable @ 60-odd hours.
I looked it up myself last week for my 08 450.

Do you still need a 15t countershaft sprocket? I might have one w/about 4K miles on it that I probably won't ever use again. I now have a 14t and it's fine for me on the street for now. Let me know. I can go dig for it. lol

I took my 300 out today and rode with some ex-isde guys,hectic boonie crashing with snow and manzanita involved.
I was lucky to walk away,but a good time was had by all.
