    Yabut if it was orange, it would be less reliable and more expensive to fix. I would have been ok with an extra 1/2 gallon on the X model, but I am still good... e-start is good on my adventure bike, not necessary on my dirt bike!

    I wonder if we could make a blue kool-aid for the real men! :lol3

    Is this the Acerbis tank? Any problems or comments on your experience with it. I am thinking of getting the yz blue one for mine...

    Are you constantly rejetting your bikes? I read somewhere else the Yamaha’s need to be jetted often. I was under the impression once and done, unless you ride in the winter time up here in coldastan...

    Finially got out.
    First impressions.
    Pretty much what everyone said it would be.
    Great suspension.
    Needs flywheel weight.
    ( I'm an old slow guy)
    And I'm goin up two teeth in the back

    Drop a tooth up front instead. Some feel the 52t is too big when the axle is farther forward. Pretty close to the chain guide block. Plus it’s easier to do concerning stock chain length.

    Rode today.

    Yeah I ride 13/50 and it crawls around in tight stuff. It does pull through the gears too quickly when the trail opens up, but ain't nobody got time for that.

    This is that gnarly downhill where I crashed and dented my pipe. It's not the steepest, it's not the rockiest, it's not the longest, it's not the curviest, but it's the right combination to cause worry and despair.

    I really like my left hand rear brake on down hills like that.
