    Mister 600 is halfway there with his 990, and apart from taco-ing a front wheel and a couple of suspension overhauls, he hasn't done much in 9 years, 50,000 miles 20190428_145424.jpg

    I'd suggest a #40 pilot jet, but oops it's a superior TPI...

    Seriously though, you ride a snappy two-stroke the same way you ride a kx450f; careful clutchwork and throttle control.

    If you still hate it after 30 hours, work out a fair price difference with @N8 and get his four-stroke Husky

    I wouldn't call the upgrade from budget Xplor jiggle-poofs to KYB's trivial. It's freaking huge.

    I wouldn't bother with my dialed-in classic OC forks, or the WP AER forks (:raabia) but the Jiggle-poofs always have me making allowances and modifying my lines. I pleasure ride, I don't always look for the fastest or most direct line. I try to find something interesting and exciting. I need to trust my bike though, and I don't trust Xplor. It's shit
