    And I am an impatient idiot as always

    New air box
    New tune
    New clutch

    All at the same time

    Bike has never run better though

    Mpgs still an issue at 37 mpg but with 15 47 gearing and lots of sand... on pavement you can feel the clutch grab quicker..back tire breaks loose easier on tarmac...

    I suck at wheelies but I was able to clutch it up in 3rd and shift to 4th.. Power band is more predictable

    37mpg!? Sheeeet! Let us know what mpg you get on hard terrain... That sand looks very dry and soft (bet it was a hoot!).

    Almost back together!

    Gas tank repaired.
    Fresh plastics
    New radiator
    Test run and no leaks.

    Lots to do yet but it's coming along. Once all the maintenance is finished I'm going to let it take a long winter's nap.

    I feel like the extra weight really helps with the bike's stability. Of the reflectors that is.

    yes 21 front wheel. Those tires are trailmax meridian, excellent grip on wet, dry, rough, small paved roads and correct for soft offroad on rolling tracks. (I don't have the opportunity to ride off-road at the moment) but soon..
