Very nice as always Krannie!

Would the R Rad Lowering Kit work with Mohards you think? Seems like a pretty simple and worth while mod.

Ermm, you dont have an "R" why??? Not being a jerk or anyting, its a serious question.

I'm assuming your asking me?

I pulled this from one of Krannies other threads on the lowering kit:

Lower center of Gravity = lower perceived overall weight, easier turning, leaning.

The lower the weight rides on the bike, the less of it you feel.

Especially noticeable on very narrow single track trails where making course corrections are sometimes done at slow speeds in a split second.

Too late. Your officially a jerk.

- E-start

- wide ratio transmission

- thicker subframe (doesn't bend)

- thicker plastics (last longer)

- 18" rear wheel

- more durable overall

- and,......IT'S STREET LEGAL

I don't think it would work with the mohards..... We had to do some carving of the Works Performance guards, which is easy. The Mohards might be tougher. Feel free to compare next time we ride.

I didn't see anywhere what you spent. I know it's not a "politically correct" question, but we're all friends here.

Can you give a ball park so that the rest of us (me) can see how much we (me) need to save to send the bike off the AS? If you don't want to give pricing from AS shop time for his reasons, that's fine, what about just the parts and engine service? PM is fine too....:lol:

Some of the work I did, some Paul did, some parts I provided, some Paul did.........so it's hard to come up with pricing.....

I spent about $1500 with Paul.

I have an accounting of it all if you would like to see it, PM me.

That's about where mine is now, and the real weight was saved in the Tubliss, the battery and the stock pipe. Everything else I have done has raised the weight. But it was up around 301 at one time, with tons of crap on it....

I really want one of those skid plates. For multiple reasons!!

I think the tubliss would be a nice addition as well. We shall see how much I get back in taxes...

Tubliss ain't cheap. It's about 100 per wheel with tax. Plus the joy of an all-day learning curve on how to install the Tubliss and tire.

I'm interested to see how the tubliss system works out long term. I remember when I went tubeless on my mountain bike and it make a huge difference in weight and traction. I will never run tubes in my mtb again.

I imagine tubeless on a dirt bike would provide the same results, but I worry about the reliability. Specifically being able to get a tire to reseal against the rim out on the trail after there is a bunch of dirt in bead.
