    My 450 is up at Accelerated Technologies - just got word that they are finished up and it's ready to go. Hoping to get out for a few more rides this year. Last summer was a write-off after the busted wrist.

    Rebuilt and revalved front forks, polished fork legs, new SKF seals, rebuilt rear shock, new swingarm bearings, upgraded rear shock needle.

    Now I'll have one less excuse. Dammit.

    Hey Mike, never made it to skootamatta. I ran out of time, Hayes Rd had some nasty ass icey sections.... Right where I dropped it and bent my bars that day with you and Jim....never made to the water crossing, just too much ice still. On the hills no less. Guess where I bent my bars???
    I might be up for a Sunday ride if I can bend these bars back well enough.

    Even the KnP trail along 7 over to Kaladar had some patches of snow. I suspect that should all turn to greasy mud with all the warm wet weather we are forecasted for this week.

    Sounds like fun! :wink:

    Edit: *warm* being a relative term!!!!

    Bike came with an RS2 yoshi pipe and from what I understand the stock header pipe on the 08 model is pretty decent. I'm going to try out stage 2 jetting w the lid off the air box. (May cut the top out if later if it works well)
