    My little 125 is a ninety pound weakling. Sorta. She is perfect in Tahuya, where she's easy to boss around, and occasionally, when she gets the upper hand, quite easy to pick up. She's near perfect at Walker for the same reasons, but there are spots where her lack of oomph and my lack of skill make for some troubles.

    In the mountains, both of us lack oomph.

    HGH's for Huskies are legal, so I'm gonna try some.

    Here she is awaiting her 40cc displacement injection.

    Walker played a little hardball with the pipe and the radiators. I'll get a new pipe with the HGH, but I had to fiddle with this.

    Now it looks like this.

    The little girl will have to use some of her extra energy to carry around the rad guards I ordered up, too.

    Some time mid-December I'll have a chance to see if my profilgate ways are gonna make me smile.

    Nice! Looking forward to hearing how you like it. I just picked up a lightly used '06 WR125 and plan on putting the WB165 kit on it, hopefully sometime next spring.

    In the meantime, new springs are in the garage, and am waiting for the fork valves to return from a tuner. Once the suspension is done, considering a APT SmartCarb, or Lectron. Then the 165 kit.

    Can't wait!

    Meanwhile, the bike is a hoot to ride as a 125. -Ed

    Too cool Dan, can't wait to see how it works. I was thinking about that for my little YZ. My foot is still sore from our last ride. Got the 150 rejetted and running pert good.

    I keep meaning to get back up to Walker to putt around a bit. But I'm still black and blue from a green dot ride three weeks ago. Maybe next week I'll give you a call. We can try Tahuya instead, it's easier on the body, but likely a good bit wetter.

    I'm looking forward to hearing how it performs after the mods, Dan. :thumb

    I'd like to se it in action...the weekend schedule opens up soon (read: soccer and lacrosse are done) and I have not yet sold off my woods smoker bike.

    How did you uncrunch the radiator so nicely? Impressive handiwork on that one :clap

    Hey Dan, this means is that you'll get to the next nap spot quicker. :lol3

    A rubber mallet and a big screwdriver used against a flat surface. Don has a more elegant method using thin wire, too.

    Guns, I can only hope for more nap time. first I have to learn to stop talking during rest stops. I'll probably just waste more rest time boring people.

    The 165 kit with the modded 200 pipe and a Lectron is a magical combination. You will be pretty happy with the results.

    Dan, you are now my radiator consultant. That one on the Husky looks perfect, straighter than the one I did.

    What 200 pipe receives a mod? KTM 200 pipe?

    I sure enjoyed my KTM 193 when I had one. Me 250s are on the small bore side too - I think. :evil

    Modified 200SX pipe, I understand. An FMF Fatty, not a Gnarly.

    Assembled and heat cycled once.

    Have to post up one picture before the pipe gets a dent. It's a Fatty, but not the kind Keith likes.

    Well, it's printed on the small piston, so I can take it out of the box and look at it any time I want to :evil
