    Wish I had checked the thread yesterday. Would have loved to join the ride today.
    Any rides planned before the DV Noob Rally?

    sean, the bike was flawless. light @ 250#, nimble and with decent power. don't need more. throttle is very crisp.

    still stock suspension and was soft, but it didn't bother me.

    14/52 gearing is great. stock was 14/45. bike and rider are happy on 3rd gear. 60 mph on pavement is ok,

    i will be installing a 5.3 gal tank and an aftermarket exhaust next.

    after the suspension job (3/4 lower), a steering damper will be nice.

    i will still do another shakedown ride before the noobs rally. keep an eye on this thread.cool to have more noobies showing up and get some dirt experience.

    52T on the rear! :clap I run 14/50 on my 310 and it's got plenty of grunt in the tight stuff. Mine is lowered just a smidge as well.

    Wait until you drop a Rekluse in that thing. :evil So happy for you Joel. Really really fun little bike. :D

    Thanks for the heads up! I actually rode with Rider914 at Lytle Creek with my newly acquired 07 450exc. HS what a blast that bike is! Feels like a giant downhill mountain bike that goes uphills real fast too - awesome day. I'll subscribe to this thread and try sift through the chatter so I know where and when to hook up in the future. :ear:1drink

    They can be had with either the tractor seat(s) or a very good bench seat .

    Parts are cheap and plentiful , I don't find the need for many parts :clap .

    Be aware these are not made for going 75 + MPH .
