We're just coming out of hibernation here. Took the 250F out to a track that I don't ride much today - I took the day off. As you know (or may not), I sent my carb to Tokyo Mods and they did their thing - all $200+. The bike frig'n rips folks. I'm +- 200lbs w/ gear and NOT the fastest guy on the track, but that damn thing responds! I'll ad that I don't/didn't have the eggs to jack w/ the carb myself - so what. I sent the carb to TM, they played w/ it for a day and had it right back to me. I didn't touch a thing other than the fuel screw (MSR) and the idle - not a single other thing. I'm blown away with that bike now. This is my second day of moto in what, 3-4 weeks (I know - that sucks) and I had the same thoughts last time. Anywho... I would do it again in a second.
