Howdy everybody, I recently picked up my first dirt bike, a 2007 KTM 250 XCF-W. Here it is: I have shaved the seat, as I'm only 5'7". Now I can get a toe down without having to scoot my butt off the side. I used an elctric fillet knife, some razors and some sand paper. The factory seat cover was a bit banged up, so I used some of the factory efx bulk gripper material. It's not going to win any awards, but I'm pretty happy for my first try. Also, since it's street legal, I needed somewhere to put a plate. I saw the EE plate holder, but didn't want to pay $15 bucks for some plastice and nuts and bolts. So I used some scrap 1/4' polycarb and made one myself. A little black spray paint and Voila! Since all that was done, I took it for my first ever dirt ride on motorized two wheels! Needless to say, I like it! Dirty!!
