So I took the new bike out this weekend and put about 110 miles on it. No real mechanical problems to speak of...I did bend the rear brake rotor pretty bad and I'm not even sure how I did it but the rear wheel would barly spin. The bike started easy with both the electric and the kick starters...I had to use both to make sure there were no problems. It pulls nice and hard through the gears in the high rpm range, it is missing the snap of my 02 YZ(BK mod & Power Now). It handled great and the normal riding postion was very comfortable and just seemed to work well all around. I think I'll start with the JD kit and some airbox mods and go from there. It does look like it will need the BK mod and maybe a YZ cam down the road.
