    I can’t get a read on you....

    You’re either a brilliant troll or have never ridden a bike with “outstanding suspension”....

    More like advertising paying to download workshop manuals....

    @racingxtc7 looking forward to see the bike finished! A test ride can’t be far off now?

    I made some progress last winter but then it was sidelined when the race season started up. I decided to run tubes from the throttle bodies into the airbox and use the k&n air filter inside the air box. We're making a lower profile oil pan to get more ground clearance. Then have to make a bracket to bolt a 300ex shifter to because where the shifter shaft is I have to use a shifter lever with a linkage. Once that is all done, I still have to wire it, have a custom exhaust made and then have it tuned. All of this and I should end up with a bike that is a lighter, more range, lower maintenance and smoother on the highway than CRF450L.
