JK Daron, enjoy your Chia. A dose about every 3rd day keeps the pipes clean too.

Maybe they aren't in Tx. but we tag them here. I've tagged 2 XR650R's and Travis is gonna tag his WRR. All you need is a Certificate of Origin and some leg work.

You can tag pretty much anything in TX. Had a WR, 2 XRR's and a DRZE plated in TX. Still doesn't change the fact that the WR450F is a race bike.

Dood! you say they aren't legal. I say they are tagged. That's legal.

I know they are race bikes. Legal ones. Of course nobody bothers to tag a ktm cause they Kant Take Mexico. Yeah the KTM is pink.

Dontcha wish they built a DS?

The bracket/mount is surely cracking on XTique mountainmoto noticed at Frog Bayou.
I had scored a DRZ400 EVO X muffler and pipe last year off ebay for dirt cheap. Anyway I was looking at it and its nearly a perfect fit for it. It needs repacking and I was searching for better alternatives to regular glass. I found this stuff. Where folks have used it, it lasts forever might carbon up but it doesn't burn up.
I'm going to order a roll and give it a shot. maybe XTique won't sound like a half a Harley coming down the road. hah

Maybe you should just fix the Katoom, and stop using it as a submarine?

Firstly XTique has proven relible, something that can not be said for the LC4.
Secondly it actually makes better power where you need it in a semi-offroad bike.
Thirdly its lighter than the LC4 and actually more comfortable.
Fourth The LC4 engine is a POS regardless what anyone says. There is something very poorly engineered in an engine that shakes like they do.
The LC4 will leave soon enough One part at a time. Its not worth the several hundred dollars it will cost to fix it.
I'm actually pondering if I can gradt its front wheel/brake onto XTique now.

Lastly I do not need or want your opinion on the matter.
Enjoy your vacation which most not be much cause on here cosntantly during it trying to impress us that your in Europe etc.
