    Got a call from our paint guy today. My replacement tank has been painted, just waiting for our mechanic to refit the fuel pump and other bits and pieces. Original tank on the right, newly painted replacement on the left.

    My buddy is rocking the Gulf decals, through Backyard Designs. Looks sharp in person. Also jealous of his 2.5 inch rear rim.

    So today I actually broke off the bit of the fork guard where the bolt goes in in addition to the bolt. So this is the fifth nylon bolt I've removed this method. The first was a total cluster trying to drill extract etc

    The guard is still very solidly attached even without the side bolt but I'm maybe going to do high mount fender this winter anyway

    How many other transplants from the crf450l forum are there lurking around in here. @KICKNBACK and @MVI
    I'm joining the club too.
    Is there a generalized list of crap I need to buy..?

    Skid plate.
    Bark busters Cycra or HDB.
    Think about engine protection either case protectors (R&G or Tripleclamp or GB Racing) or crash bars.

    From there it’s just your standard mods to suit your travels.

    But even with the fork guard gone that standoff will be sticking out and could get busted off.

    Just depends on how you plan to use it. But generally spring it for your weight a set of Barkbusters from MVI and a camel adventures tidy tail if you want to clean up the ass-end. Outback Motortek has some tough stuff watch the videos of them dragging the bike around. If luggage is your thing lots of options are now out. I like Kriega OS stuff I can size them for what ride I’m taking and can get a base for any bike and use the same bags. Stock seat isn’t too bad, but the pegs might be a little narrow if you have big feet. But really there isn’t much for the average user just gas and go. Stock tires are pretty good but if you plan on mud you might need some bigger lugs.

    Noticed my rear pads were close to metal while away on Holiday so had a shop replace them for me while in for a new front tyre too. The shop only had EBC TT pads which are aimed at Enduro riders as they generate less heat but do wear quicker, we shall see, so far I like the feel of them and they seem to slow the bike better than the OE pads (Easier to lock up off road). Oh and my original Front Scorpion tyre managed 8500 miles (Mainly Road)
