.......and people having to replace them and the mounts???? Inferior metals, bad mounting connection/welds or what? I'm looking at 200lbs. with no air time at first. Been since 1992 since I owned/raced 250's and now slower/old/fat!!!! Just planning on trail riding when my new bike arrives and will have to get my mojo back somewhat. I don't see me getting much if any air on it. I've already been invited to northern Illinois to meet up with some mini-riders at a track. Thanks, Tim P.
