    im most likely buying some of these in black if B&B dont do something similair to fit to there rack

    im not buying the rack just the side plates, id like to make my own a little different but just dont have the gear and patients, i might even cut the spacers a bit bigger and reshape the back to not go back as far, but ill see

    I've been onto MXStore a few times in the past few weeks about a tool/bum bag. Apart from twice when they didn't answer (but there's the option for you to get a call back - and they did), they've been nothing but brilliantly helpful. Once glitch I had, I phoned them back and it was instantly sorted with a $10 discount just for MY mistake. So I find it extremely difficult to believe that you are not getting through.
    FWIW I bought my AXP bashplate for 501 last year, and yes, there was a 8 week wait on them. I've found things are cheaper through MXStore than anywhere else. Even FC moto doesn't match it (except for helmets & boots).

    The AXP looks like it will do a good job on there.

    OMG it looks like some serious work is about to happen. Would you like to elaborate on what you're having done exactly?

    I do a few km's in my daily commute and probably half at highway speed. Always found first gear was a bit of a waste and could easily move off in second. Just changed the front sprocket to a 16 tooth and while its not a massive difference there's a definite improvement overall. I think if you were doing long rides with a combo of highway, country roads and firetrails then a 16 tooth front is the way to go. Even single track it would be fine. Changing the sprocket was a 20 minute job (taking my time) and wasn't hard at all. Remove the cover, undo the sprocket nut, change sprocket, do it all back up. Probably took longer to adjust the chain tension back up.
