    There's a couple of blasters floating around with 400s 465s and 490's but this is the first I've seen it done opposite. Minus the tank that is one bulletproof looking little bike

    Thanks guys. I can't wait to hang the exhaust and get this sorted out. The bike rolls around so easy it's ridiculous. I think it will finish out at 248 lbs complete with fuel and with just a few tools packed up.

    So what are you doing for a pipe?

    I think you're really going to like how that motor works.

    It started as a 1978 XS500,then it morphed into a dualsport when I put 1989 YZ250 suspension,brakes,wheels,fenders on it. Ah,it still had my drag motor in it with no flywheel or charging system,wild cams,etc. So yeah, that was a handful! This should be a really good combo now,I hope. Think this "pipe" will work?

    Without a chamber it's going to be strangled. It's a damn cool bike, and it needs a hot chamber.

    I ordered my exhaust over 3 months ago,my bike has been done for 2 months now (minus pipe). I just cancelled the pipe order last week and I am putting a new game plan into action this weekend. My new goal is to fire it up in one week and hopefully get it sorted in the next couple of weeks. I am tired of waiting!

    Always liked the low slung chamber. This bike really does have classic looks. I bet it sounds pretty on the pipe too. Give us a ride review when you get a chance.

    It is a cheapo DG for an RD350.It fit perfect without any modifying,seems to make great power too.[​IMG][​IMG]
