[QUOTE=DirtDad;18143129]Well I just got this a few days ago. Can't believe I got a brand new one. I was wanting the black, but it was sold before I could get to it. I am liking the blue. First time I have ever fussed over color.

/QUOTE]

Good for you!

Check you chain tension - looks a little tight!

Got my X2 re-installed with the ignition barrel back in the stock location. Very happy with the results and my home-made lexan windscreen actually works! It's not pretty, but not much else on the bike is

Oh yes. I tested them well the past few weekends!

The bite is incredible and I made these out of a set of trakmasters.
I tried a set of pro tires on a friend's 450 EXC and the grip is unbelievable on ice.

If you get a moment, could you post a couple more pics of what you've done with the X2 at different angles, ignition barrel, signal lights, and shield. I run an X2 on the KLX and really like it.

My KLR jr in a fresh coat of Krylon. Tool tube, 30 cal ammo can, and a homebrew rear rack are the only farkles. Has somewhere around 6k miles on it, doesn't use a drop of oil, and starts on the first kick everytime.
