You're going to love it. start looking at what jetting people in your area are using now, so you'll know what to do once you have it. Don't get the JD kit, you don't need it. Stock needles work fine. At the most, you may want to pick up a 38 idle jet, and a 165 & 168 main just to have on hand.

It is so easy to work on, everything is easily accessible even for a noob like myself. Make sure you get the "brief case" that has the manual, two power valve springs (Red and Green, the yellow should already be in the bike) and the tool kit and I think it has an extra main jet, forget the number.

If you're looking for pipes and silencers, refer to this article:

Oh and be sure to post some bike porn when you get it home.

Nice! Rode my buddy's last weekend when we traded bikes for awhile. The biggest difference I noticed was that his suspension was nooiice..

I've never been this excited about a new bike before. It even came with M404/403 tires which I really like. The ONLY beef I have is there is no sparky as standard equipment so I bought an FMF Q for it. Now there will be no worries about being totally legal or passing any sound checks and I can sneak up on my buddies. I also won't be bugging the neighbors riding out of my garage AND it'll have a street plate with street and off road stickers for AZ. I'm one happy old fart.

I can't shake that feeling like I'm doing something illegal when riding my 300 on the street even though it's plated, insured and registered. Granted it's no cruiser, but even on the connector roads, I get that "I'm doing a baaad thing" feeling.:banana:

I probably should not elaborate on it too much but the thing in AZ is an actual plate with OHV sticker is required now so I figured I would add the street tag eventhough the bike itself won't be technically street legal in the form I'll be riding it. Easy enough to add the lights and such if necessary but basically it'll be a full off road race bike with a street legal plate. I do have to ride across pavement on occassion and might have to get some gas sometimes so I'm hoping to sneak it by.:lol: It's cheating in a way but most of time the LEO's in the Yuma area are cool as long as we're not being stupid and show some effort to try and stay legal. People around here drive golf carts in town sometimes and nobody thinks anything of it.:banana: It's one of those very cool things about AZ I pray won't be "enforced" away.
