    I took her for about an hour ride on some knarly forest roads that some riders won't go on - took it easy and all but she swears she'll never get on the thing again! :eek1

    I've ridden on the back of my friend's, and I agree that the seat is pretty hard back there. I expect you'll need to do something about that if you expect a successful endeavor.

    ReRoute it if you need to. I've just taken mine up and over the top of errthang. I also use the XRL master. Works just fine. for me.

    I picked mine up from Motostrano. It's a Galfer. They are a big supermo shop down the road from Steve. You need. Longer one as the stock 450 line is designed to simply cross the number plate.

    I'm using an '08 CRF master cylinder. It has neat ball and socket mechanism for the lever piston interface rather than a small bolt and pin. It's like butta! That and a CRF stuff front oversize disc and it finally has enough brake.

    Better than when you ride it and it changes to poop. Mine will pull the wheel up at 50. And I'm putting on a bigger carb.

    A better way to phrase it would be a .243 is perfect :-)
    Got my load dialed in and grouping quarters at 200yds.

    Wait a minute here. Are you cranking out ammo for people ThumpnRed? If so I might want to get in on this. My longest reaching at the moment is a .223, but hopefully soon I'll have something bigger. :lol3

    I got one of them in the safe. It was my first big bang stick. I guess it's close to 40 years old now :eek1. My 22-250 is probably my favorite right now. That little sucker will flat f&^$ up a desert dog's day.:deal

    I have an '05 CRF master... looks like that neato ball and socket didn't happen until '07...

    Thanks everyone for the input on the brake line.
