  1. Thank you everyone for your kind words and encouragement. I know that time and hard work will heal the injuries but Riding a Dirt bike the way I like to may be asking too much. I have plenty of hobbies that I can still enjoy and ways to get out there. I am now and will be working with a Good Physical therapist. It is going to be a long long road and I know in the end it will have made me a stronger person. I am not looking for pity or sympathy. But just know that I appreciate all the help and advice from others on this site has given me over the years. This is the best, friendliest and most helpful forum on the net.
  2. Thanks for the kind words everyone. Like some of you said, I could keep it. I don't have to get rid of it but it is a shame to waist it just sitting there. It will be a minimum of 18-24 months before I can even think about riding and then I will have to convince the wife to let me and risk injury. Probably should not do it anyway. Personally I would rather not look at it if I cant ride it. I can always build another type of toy to get me into the wilderness anyway. I am thinking a rock crawling buggy might be fun for a while.
  3. As some of you probably have seen my bike in previous threads. I bought a KLX 400R a little over a year ago to build a bullet proof Dual sport weapon out of. Well I did it. Spent way too much money doing it but that was alright. Wouldn't you know it, just after it was complete I was injured at work. Well I have been told by the DR. and the Wife that I will no longer ride dirt bikes for at least a year or two if ever. But worse than that I might not return to my job as a Firefighter witch I love. So my loss will be all of your gain. I would love to see it go whole. I just dont think anyone would want a 2003 for thirty five so I will begin tearing it apart as I can and when I can get help doing so. i am, well stuck in bed most of the time. I did post up an add previously and got some good response but was unable to tear the bike apart before going under the knife. So I am sorry for those of you who wanted it then. A big thank you to all of you for your help building one bad a$$ bike. Especially Eddie for his work on the machine. Hopefully one day I will be able to ride a bike or at least a Razor xp. I will miss the dirt too much. And to the Mods this is not an add but a eulogy for the good times on the KLX.

    should have done this sooner(crf master)

    Isn't it a great Mod. It is defiantly one of the best ones you can do for the money.
  5. Well I went ahead and listed it in the classifieds. I have had a ton of interest in the small stuff. I will not however dismantle it without the engine being sold. I am actually just really wanting a 2012 fuel injected big bore. I love the KLX and the motor turned out awesome. The whole bike did actually. It is just so damn heavy. We will see. If the motor does not sell then I guess it will have to stay together and I will just keep it. I am definitely not thinking that I am going to get all of my money back on it but some would be nice.

    What did you do to your DRZ400 today?

    Decided to part it out. I dont think I could get anything out of it as a complete bike since it is a 2003. Even though everything was just completly rebuilt over the past year.
  7. So Even though I just completed my complete overhaul of the KLX/DRZ in June I am thinking about parting it out. I have a few Questions for those of you who have done it. Did you sell the motor off first so it was still able to start for possible buyers? Was it worth the effort? Did you get any more money over selling it complete? What was the best way for calculating shipping charges? Would you do it again? Trying to determine if it is going to be worth the time or not. Thanks

    GPR vs Scotts steering dampener

    I have the scotts with the sub mount from BRP real nice package. BRP is local so It was nice to get it right away. Great customer service. On my KTM I had a GPR and It was also nice but I do not like the damping back to center.
