  1. You can ride bikes in the ditches? Where in MN do you live? I thought you could only ride bikes on trails that are marked specifically for dirt bikes. Either way, I would call and talk to someone at the police station to verify that you can ride the bike around even if you had a license.
  2. Thats what I was hoping not to hear lol. Thanks guys, I will probably just hold out till the manual shows up just to be sure im not going to break anything or mess something up.
  3. I have my motor out right now and I was going to instal the 4th gear shift drum and the manual cable clutch kit both from takegawa. I am trying to split the case right now and I cannot get the damn thing appart. Does anyone have any tips or maybe a step by step with pictures, even an online service manual would be a great help. I orderd a service manual for it but it isnt going to be here for another few days so I really dont want to have to pay for an online manual.
  4. Thanks for the heads up on the clutch cabel I will check that out, also about the clutch springs... I remember reading awhile back that you needed to upgrade if you are doing a big bore kit which I plan to do over the winter also. About the wheel... I wanted to swap out the front to a wheel that had a disc brake anyways, if I do the kx60 front wheel will it bolt up directly? Also, how would I mount the caliper? Or would I be better off trying to swap out the whole front end from a different bike that has a 12" front wheel/disc brake? If the best way to do it is to swap out the entire front end, which front ends are able to bolt up, also what other parts would I need to do the swap?
  5. Im buying either a klx110 or a drz110 and I am turning it into a mini motard so that I can ride it indoors over the winter, I need to put together a list of parts/mods that "NEED" to be done for me to ride it. Im about 6'1" and weigh about 200 with gear on. I also want to turn it into a fully manual 4spd with a hydr. clutch, is there a certain kit I need to buy or just any ebay kit will do? So far I am thinking I will need: Big bar kit, new heavy duty pegs/mount, stiff springs, street tires, clutch master cyl., 4spd shift drum, and maybe heavy duty clutch springs... Is there anything I need to add or remove from my list? I am going to eventually put a lot more parts into it but I am just looking for a list of things that need to be done right off the bat before I start riding it. Also, are there any good websites to buy parts from? I work at a honda/yamaha dealership and I can get stuff from tucker rocky and parts unlimited at 10% above cost but neither of those dealers have many 110 parts.
  6. The track is actually fairly small, 7 maybe 8 turns and 1 long straight. It turns out that they might only allow 50's to race on it, so I might end up having to go that route. Now I just need to start looking at parts and figure out how much it will cost to get a bike ride-able.
  7. First off I am new to the forum so if this should have been listed in the minis section feel free to move it. So I am currently looking for a new hobby/something to keep me busy over the cold winters up here in MN. We have an indoor Go-Kart track called Prokart Indoors and it turns out they host mini motard races every sunday. This sounds like a fun hobby to get into. Now I dont know anything about Mini's or Motards but I would like to buy a base bike to start a motard project. I work at a dealership and can get any kawi, yamaha, suzuki or honda at a little above cost so I figure I might as well buy new and start from scratch. I really know nothing about dirtbikes or motards in general but I do own a street bike and do all my own repairs/mods. If I could get some help in choosing the right bike and picking out some mods to get me started on turning it into a motard that would be great! I have been looking at the klx 110 because I dont want to have to bore out the motor right at the get go, I ride a 1000 on the street so I think if I bought a 50 I would be a little let down. Also is a 110 going to be too big size wise for an indoor Kart track? Here is a pick of my street bike just for kicks.
