Bars!!! Also, in a race, my bike tipped over slightly and bent the radiator... maybe some radiator guards. Chain also stretches.

I wouls say exhaust too. That really woke my bike up. Once I put the slip-on on the power band felt like a YZ250F. Try to set the suspension up too.

i just ordered some pro tapers bars, chain, and some ally extras.

whats the recomended pipe? my supplyer has white brothers-E series, fmf power4, fmf power titanium and pro circuit ti-4.

i just put it all together but as i was putting the oil in, it seemed to fill up real quick, then when i fired here up there was oil coming out the overflow pipe??

it says to put 1.5L in but i only managed to get about 1L.

do they come with some allready in?

Yes they do have oil in them already. I think you should dump all the oil that is in it and start over, so you know how much is in it. Your's takes 1.5l, I think my '04 takes less than that.

the chain stretches a lot, you have to tighten it pretty much every ride, u might squeeze in 2 if your lucky. Get some aftermarket bars (twinwalls are nice), I wouldn't change the exhaust until you get used to the bike so you at least know how it compares to a stocker.
