    My suspension guy gutted my 1999 WR125 forks and made them work as well as anything available for woods in 2012. I think they were Zoke 45s, inverted and I have no doubt he could stick some great guts in these too. Watching the vids, it looks to track pretty good and it doesnt blow thru badly, but you gotta ride it to feel it.

    Id have expected wallowy and super soft, but the bike looks to hold up in the stroke on the drops and in nearly stopped jump landings. The MX stuff a good rider can make seem smooth.

    That's why one of you guys needs to buy one of these and give us a true first-hand account of what's what on these things.

    It's kinda funny, about 3 weeks ago I posted something on my Facebook about how much you pay for a "name". When looking at $75 Yeti cups and the $10 Ozark Trail cups, both are made in the exact same factory to the exact same specifications, both utilizing likely the exact same steel too.

    I've largely ridden Yamaha my entire life. 27 years. I own more Yamaha gear than I can count. If someone said they could make a Yamaha quality product at half the price though, would I consider it? You betcha. I'm a brand loyalist to an extent, but I'm far more of a pocket book and quality loyalist than anything else.

    We're all probably responding to this thread on things made in China. Not everything from there is horrendous. I much would prefer a Predator engine over another Kohler on my log splitter for example..

    Brand doesn't mean much to me anymore.

    One guy (Scott was the youtuber's name) said that on his video, he found the suspension really firm and he was getting back into riding after many years off.

    This makes sense to me. Japanese bikes, which we'll guess he's been riding like most of us, are known for super plush and soft suspension. This, being a KTM clone, would have a much firmer "Ready to Rice" suspension. (See what I did there?)

    If I sell my bikes, i just might be that guy. Navin is the Pitster salesman of the year in one simple post that started this all...

    They should scrap the name Pitster and call it a Navin LX250.

    "Dude, what is that?"

    "It's a Navin."

    The only issue I've seen thus far as Navin mentioned being the chinese diagnosic tool not working properly for the EFI to recalibrate, and someone who owns one mentioned it being slightly lean, backfiring on decel on their video.

    I'm wondering if any Dyno shop can simply bypass this or re-flash the whole ECU. One guy remedied this by adding a spark arrestor screen, which caused enough back pressure to get it to stop. We'd need one anyway if we're gonna ride. It's da lawwww.

    Are y'all sure Navin doesn't already own Pitster?

    He could posting from his corporate jet while heading to Utah to let his minions know he just sold a bunch.

    If it's something a Dyno shop can bypass, flash, or fix, i'd be curious how many ponies we could get out of it uncorked. General Tso mode activate.

    Navin did say that the owner was a member here... and referred to him by his first name, not inmate name.

    Where the hell did I put my tinfoil hat.

    Apparently custom graphics can be ordered with the bike. Can I get a Pitster Pro ISDE Navin Edition?
