    Talk to me about that horn....water proof? I keep drowning my F250 horn, then i need to take it off and get all the water out before it will work again....I guess i could find a shallower route to take, ..... nah.

    That's a great question, I'll let you know next time I wash it, or do a water crossing. I put Silicone on the connections, because they were a bit loose. For now here's a link to the item http://www.ebay.com/itm/BLUE-SUPER-...Parts_Accessories&hash=item19db772915&vxp=mtr

    The Seller also has dual horns for auto applications if that's what you mean by the f250. I always aim my truck at the biggest puddles too!

    Will those stickers work on the fork boots?

    I was curious, so I just gave the horn a good dousing with the hose. Still sounds like an angry goose on steroids.

    I think I am failing to understand the question. Vinyl wrap on the rubber fork boots? That's not going to work. The vinyl is only flexible when hot, and it would be nearly impossible to apply. You could try tie-dying them. Make sure you post pictures of the results.

    I decided to lose the vinyl wrap, and added an Acerbis 4.25 gallon tank, a Maier rear fender and a Seat Concepts saddle. I love this bike!

    I like it! Did you know the off road only had a different cam? When I had my '97, it was lacking in power as well. I added a kick starter too. But it never ran like I thought it should and was tough to get it to wheelie.
    So, I am thinking to get another one.
    Very nice what you did with yours!
