I am seriously considering keeping my trusty 2000 model another year, since we are trying to have another child...this bike is dialed in suspension wise with Race Tech Gold Valves, and runs like a champ. This is what I am thinking... 1) Eric Gorr 444cc kit, includes a 13.5 to 1 piston, replating, $375.00. I have read good things about this kit, and Eric Gorr has a very good rep in the biz. "mo motah fo mah booday!" 2) Dubach Racing complete exhaust system "lighter and better than stock" 3) I have already done the BK mod, with a stock '01 needle, 168 or 165 main depending on temps, and a 48 pilot. 4) Dubach Racing wet sump kit, of course I would change the oil every ride, big deal, it's only a quart. "3lbs lighter and SO TRICK" 5) new plastics (pretty baby!) 6) 2001 CR250 master cylinder, I already have the braided line, and my brakes are very good, the master cylinder would bring them into super-good spec. "somebody stop me!" 7) I have a source for low priced VP-108 octane race gas...so no big deal with the motor kit. "vroom vroom" Opinions, flames, and suggestions welcome!
