    2whlrider may only need another short outing on the orange and he will probably turn to the "Dark Side".
    I can see it now.... 250klx for sale, replaced by orange.

    If cash was no object that's exactly what I'd do. :cry And I wouldn't even need another ride.

    I'm surprised a 330 kit would double the power. There is a 351 kit available....maybe something to think about.

    Supposedly the 330 kit puts out higher numbers than the 350 but I don't believe much I read on the internet.
    Bore carb and exhaust probably add around 10hp. A good boost for a 17hp engine lol.

    With that said. for what you'll spend doing all that stuff you could upgrade to a pretty nice bike.

    My bike is still 250cc. It had mods done by the previous owner...I'll have to see what he did, he gave me a list.

    With a hard shift from first to second, it lifts the front wheel, pretty easily.

    I have the Clark tank, but like Steve's more, his replaces the front fairing parts...really nice stuff.

    It's supposed to get up to almost 7c tomorrow, so I'm thinking of taking my bike into town. I have a couple of stops to make but then I might do some local sights. There's supposed to be a cave or old mine audit at the base of Mt McKay, see if I can find it. Might go to the lookout and up to Crescent lake, or whatever. Anyone is welcome to join me and make sight suggestions but I preffer to keep it local sights and not too far out.

    Same here to the East. Planning on taking the CRFL out on Sunday to ride with a buddy on his KTM. Afterwards, the batteries are getting pulled on all 3 and covered up until I can't take it anymore in early Spring.

    It's an option, however I may rent a bike a couple of times instead.

    Going bike shopping on Monday.... Could be another vintage bike to squeeze into the shed!!! The KLX maybe looking for new home soon.

    Got me curious!!! A Captain America helmet?

    probably gonna part with my two strokes in the spring to finance progress, (completion?) of that Panther build. Hate to do it but I don't have room, nor the money to be a collector. Plus it bugs the heck out of me to have stuff I don't use.
    I need to simplify things--- vintage sidecar rig for touring with the wife and pup, vintage Panther for solo riding with my cvmg pals and the DR for serious solo touring, commuting, enjoyment etc.
    Just me I guess.

    BackRoader---make sure and post a pic of your acquisition.

    Vintage Red, White and a little Blue for me would be 1984 Honda Interceptor 750.
