I picked this bike up used with fairly low miles. The P.O. did a Motard conversion running 17" Pirelli's front and rear, with aftermarket wheels and oversized front rotor. It came with a full FMF exhaust and KLX needle swap. Fastway steering stabilizer...otherwise stock.
I'm converting it back to a more traditional dual sport bike for Adventure type riding. I sourced a set of front and rear wheels off Ebay, stripped them bare and had them powdercoated black. Installed heavy duty 3mm tubes and Shinko 244 tires, with Tusk rotors. Dropping the gearing from 15/43 stock to 14/45
The jetting was off since it had a hanging idle. I've since added a JDJet kit and fresh Tusk air filter to eliminate that problem. The 'Doohickey' had not be swapped out, but both the spring and the machined part appears to be in great shape. I also added the Eagle MFG fork brace for stability. I added a Street Rays 1.5" lowering link for offroad confidence, but disliked how much ground clearance I lost, so I put it back to stock since I could sit flat footed anyway.
Next on the 'To Do' list will be Tusk crash bars, Tusk Panniers, Enduro Engineering skidplate, and a Trail Tech Voyager Pro.
