Cracked the clutch cover with the rear brake pedal when I slipped coming down mount sugarloaf near newcastle Australia. First time riding there and I can confirm what I read about the gnarly hill climbs was right. Steep and rocky with quite a few unrideable sections. Just had it feeling great again too after a carb clean and regrease of the swingarm. Hit me up if anyone you know rides in the area frequently I just moved here from Queensland and would love some people to ride with.

Thank you, its a 2002, I get the impression it has been used as a trail bike, & seems to be in good condition.

I really like the look of that headlight and new front fender. I've been considering doing the same thing to my 05 with the 07+ headlight, but I kinda like the bigger 12 headlight. Did you find an oem take off or buy new? How much does one of those run? How was the mounting, any custom brackets needed? That bike is sweet!

Well it kinda fits. I got it new from bike bandit. it was like 130 I think for all the parts, maybe less. The sides bolt on like the 05 light. The lower tipple on the 07+ bikes have pointed things where the threaded holes are on the 06 and older. They are spaced a little close to. I put an 8mm bolt through the bottom of the threaded hole and then slid the light hole mounts on it. I did this on my 05 as well I use to have but with a 07 headlight. 

I just looked up the headlight and plastic piece for it. The 07 was $164 and the 12 was $105. Crazy that the newer parts are cheaper than the old! I think I might just go for the newer style. Can you tell any difference if it is brighter or about the same?

Well after reading a bunch of TT posts I went with the jb weld solution. And here is how it turned out. Before and after photo. I used some of the leftover to glue a small piece of rubber to the brake pedal after I bent it back into shape. Might help if I ever fall again.

So I retarded the exhaust cam a tooth and ground down the decomp pin about 1mm/ .040 in a few weeks ago .

 

Notice I said "about" :banghead: ,   well apparently I went to far.  I ground down to .040 and then rounded/polished it ,

which then measured .049 :rant: . Oh well I tried it any way , the extra power is nice however it became damn near

impossible to start because the decomp was not right.  

 

I put back in the other stock exhaust cam I have and it starts super easy again. 

 

I screwed up this mod and should have just ponied up the $180 for the YZ cam .
