I prefer to rotate the subframe up for more room, but it's not necessary. I liked this video.

That is the one. Sorry I could not get it up on here any quicker. Thank goodness someone did it in a timely manner. Nicely done.

Let me know if you want (or need) a firmer foam!

PMB Kickstand and Clockworks tank.

It arrived! My new Pro Moto Billet Kickstand arrived yesterday.

It is one "Sexy bitch" too.

After I fumbled over the weekend and my original kickstand started cracking I ordered one of these up and it is really nice. I was going to order a TrailTech like one of buddies has, but they do not make one according to their site for my 08'.

The new Clockworks tank should be in today and then I can get the bike all back together after some routine maintenance. Thanks again to the inmates here for their insight and experience.

I now have to shop for my wife a bike.

It's a Pirelli MT43 DOT Trials Tire. I run a D606 on the rear for our long desert trips and switched about a year ago to running the MT43 for everything else. Now that I tried the MT43 for single track use etc I won't go back, amazing traction! Not the best for the street but it will run down the road if you need to connect trails etc. Absolutely awesome in rocky or hard terrain, even does pretty darn good in the soft stuff.

I'm also running the PMB Kickstand...Great unit!

You should give the Shinko SR241 tire a try.
Biased ply, DOT legal, work great with the Tubliss system.

Tank pad stickers

Anyone used the stock tank pad stickers on their Clockworks tank to protect the translucent plastic of the tank? They should work from what i am looking at.

Got a Clockwork tank on the way for my 09 XC-F/RFS hybrid so I'll get a set as well.

Do you happen to have the part number, Mike or anybody else?

Not sure if I should order the 4 stroke or the SX version:

Here is the part number from KTM-parts.com for the EXC

http://www.ktm-parts.com/77008998000.html

and the ones for the XC/XC-W

http://www.ktm-parts.com/54808998000.html

They look the same to me.
