Thanks I got one
My first ever Doctor! Had many many enduro bikes been riding since i was a kid but I’ve finally got myself a chick magnet, and she’s mint!
Does anyone know the possibility of fitting a 2010 yz450f front end to it. Ive got the whole setup, wheel, kyb sss forks, brakes triple clamps everything.
Its got racetech gold valves and springs so I’ll give it a chance before i do anything drastic anyway it might good for the kind adv riding i want to do.
Can anyone recommend the bar risers that lift the bars up and forward ? It has risers but they come back at me.
Won't be bolt on, but could be done. You need to consider things like travel, ride height, offset/trail, a lesser brake, steering stops and head bearings. I've done WP, Showa and DRZ fork conversions FWIW. In each case I adapted the stock DR wheel and upgraded to a 320 disc. If you raise the front, then raise the rear with a shock and 18" rim. All doable, and entertaining in the shed, especially if you have a lathe, hammer, grinder, welder etc.
So what do people think of the new double bearing Warp9 sprocket carrier?
"To my untrained eye" the bearings don't look wide enough??
ive got the lowered and all fit up ok, lowered and pushed back should fit up but best to check with them
I'm not convinced, although it will be better than stock by a bit. Much better to fit a spigot bearing(s).
The local guy, Lachie, does a better job for far less money – though stuff will probably arrive from the USA faster than from Brisbane....
Also, failure isn't a foregone conclusion: ours did almost 60,000km with no issues and I only sent them up to Lachie as a precaution.
Lachie fits a spigot bearing is what @Precis wanted to say too
Is he a member here? Not finding him after a few quick searches.
I might order a new stock hub and send it off to him - DR is the only transport I have atm, and I don't want it down for how ever long shipping and everything takes.
I've been planning on having a second set of wheels with their own hub and hardware anyway - One set with 90/10 dirt/road and the second the opposite.

Cheers, @BergDonk PMed me his e-mail earlier, I'll shoot him a message later in the week.
Adv Bike Aus now have both the Nova A & B gearbox's in stock, pricing is very similar to what i paid straight from Nova and i managed to somehow dodge GST when it went through customs
It's the pure platinum of which they're made...
With the exchange rate and bank charge on top; Almost same (No GST paid either). We are only talking a few dollars here <$10 inc. postage.
Nova got a bit more in their pocket to help them along during COVD I hope.
Mine arrived via UPS in 7 days from the Nova sales counter, which I thought was amazing!
Geeze now I'm thinking should send the shafts out for tumbling (Isotropic finishing).... FFS...
If I hadn't got involved with Nova, I was likely heading down the cryogenic treatment path with my stock bits; http://www.mtce.com.au/coldinfo.htm
Yes I was going down the same lines of thought as well. I seem to recall another inmate did but didn't get the result they were hoping for. As I believe we and others have showed, through some experimenting and in my case experience, oil and oil temp are critical for the stock box parts to survive.
FWIW on the oil temps side of things my little air scoop cracked a little, so I removed it for my last ride. I estimate 6-12 deg C it takes out of the oil temp, based on the "in fin" trail tech temp gauge. About ~6 on a cross wind and 12 on the nose. It will be getting redone as MKIII.
I've got one of those bags of shiny cogs.
Probably be the better part of a year before I actually install it, just one ride atm.
