I picked up a completely rebuilt 2005. It doesn’t have the sss front fork but the one that’s on there seems good enough for me at the moment. I’ve thought about doing a lot of the mods listed but in the end I didn’t. It’s nice to know I can upgrade the bike over time, if funds allow. I did have to lean out the carb settings as the racer before me was a seriously fast rider. The front brake certainly doesn’t have a lot of power and I might well upgrade that, if I can. The one other thing I might also change is the rear wheel to an 18” for the fatter side wall or I might just go tubliss with The 19” wheel that’s on there (I think that’s right). Any thoughts on the Tubliss system for those that have gone that way? Trail riding involves some sharp rocks. I’ve already ruined a ride with a pinch flat. I’d rather be riding than dicking around with flat tires.
