    You will sell those passenger footpegs to an XChallenge owner in a matter of hours if you post it there, I predict. :D
    As is must be an '07 ('08) with the aluminum subframe which had the removable footpegs, unlike the '09.

    Well, I installed a new K&N filter in my Little Bike, changed the oil (past due anyway) and took it out yesterday. I ran the dog dookie out of it and, if there's anything wrong with it, I couldn't tell it.

    This is a sporty little bike on the road. Mine hauls ass on pavement. Lots of fun.

    I ordered a Pro Screen for my cross country....based on the picture I saw here below...I really liked the look. But I am having trouble getting it mounted....it wants to rest heavily on the turn signals.

    I had this brand on my xChallenge bike and loved it...so I thought it would be good to get for the xCountry.

    If anyone has one or can take a pic of how they mounted it to the bars and the gap to the headlight in the front...I would be very grateful.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I tried to source through normal channels first, that's why the part #.
    Anyway, kit # for 45mm Marzocchi is KITG-45M or KITG-45M-HD (heavy-duty).
    Of course they are unobtainium via normal channels in this part of the world,
    mostly because of restrictive terms for distributors. Nearest dist. told me that
    smallest batch for them is 20 kits and because turnaround for 45mm Marzocchis is
    very long they will not stock them. So much for helping the LBS's (local bike shop)
    to thrive.
    I'll ponder for a while if SKF is worth my business given the cost and the way they
    wall off the end customers.

    You could try Hyperpro as they stock them AFAIK. It'll be international postage though.
