    FMF Racing Fatty Pipe

    I like the power out of this way better than the Gnarly, but it dents like a tin can

    Got some new parts in, interested to try them all out! D'cor decals seat cover: I had the moose racing gripper seat cover but I can tell you during the mud races it was like sitting on a slip and slide so I decided to try something else Thunder Products Torque Wing: Ive had my eye on this for a while, super interested to see what happens with it SKF Mud scrapers: I have been using seal savers but they are getting real chewed up so I thought I may as well give these a shot

    Do you feel a big difference? I have read very mixed reviews online from other guys

    I picked up these on kijiji and Im excited to try them out! There isnt much in the way of reviews for them, but for $125 it was worth a shot! Anyone have experience with them?

    This is my first time trying the Pro-X, I usually run the Wiseco however these were a great deal on Rocky Mountain ATV!

    It came with a 0.5, 0.4, and 0.1 or 0.2 (can't tell with calipers). I am currently changing the top end and used the 0.4, which I have been using for the last 4ish top ends

    Got another order in, I basically have a new bike at this point.... I wanted the 2016 front fender and number plate, and thats the option I picked on RMATV, but I ended up with the 2013 ones again. I guess polisport hasnt made the new plastics yet..? Also needed new shrouds because I cracked mine dropping a pivot turn right onto a rock New top end: Fork bushings and seals: When I had the bike at Blackfoot Direct, they replaced the countershaft seal however it was leaking from the first ride. I brought it back in and they replaced it no charge! But told me it was definitely time for my sprockets to go, so.....:

    Here to post a bit of an update on the bike! I had some issues with the coolant overflow tank, basically the vent hose was kinked so it wasnt allowing the coolant to flow back into the rad when it cooled down, and it sprung a leak. So, here is my 3rd version of the overflow tank! I just attached it to my radiator brace this time, it isnt in the way anymore plus I can keep an eye on it to see if it is working. Next, my suspension needed a bit of work. The heim joint was completely worn out, so I got a new one and replaced the top shock bearing as well. I brought it to Pro-Action Suspension to get a new spring because I had a progressive spring that was a bit too soft, so I had no static sag. He set me up with the WP 69-250, which I am thinking could be on the light side still because my static sag is only 14mm. I will try it out anyways because he recommended it

    Man I missed riding this thing! The fatty makes much better power than the gnarly IMO. No better way to break in a fresh build than some endurocross

    Motor was done yesterday! Stayed up all night to get it together so I could ride today. Obviously the bike isnt done, graphics and plastics are on order and I will be changing all bearings and oils come race season prep!

    Haven't been able to get much work done on the bike lately, the engine is still in the shop but I am hoping it is done today. They were waiting for a few seals and bearings that arrived yesterday. Ive just been putting on bits and pieces in preparation for the engine because I really want to get out and ride. Sick of riding my brothers SXF! I dont know if I love the routing of the killswitch and clutch hose, but ill just deal with it because I dont see any other options. Will be ordering new plastics soon, because we are getting graphics designed right now by M7. Im thinking of sticking with the same color scheme of all black and orange front fender/ number plate. I am running the 2013 front fender right now, but I think that the 2016 fender/ plate would work so I will most likely order those because I like the look of them

    Got the handlebars on Read an article on Kailub Russell's GNCC bike, and they are using this downtube to store the coolant recovery tank. Since i dont have a newer model frame, i couldn't run the radiator overflow hose straight into the frame, but this is good enough i think. Good luck to myself ever getting this out... Lastly got the electronics on and sorted out. A lot of extra stuff since i took off my taillight and headlight!

    Thanks! I cant wait for it to be a full bike again instead of hiding it in the garage!
