    Thanks mate i hope so ! Anybody tried the NON ali bash plates , are they any good ? I read on TT that the ali ones tend to amplify the engine noises and these were an improvement Also got any clothing reccomendations , Sinisalo or KTM or other?. Enduro jacket and trousers will probably do something warm ,dry and not to bulky thought the KTM ones looked the dogs nuts but are they worth the extra ? could try to get a deal off the bike supplier at the same time if i know what to go for ........

    Nice 1 cheers lads ,i must admit i had noticed the swinglng arm was tapered but having not seen it in the flesh of course didnt know it was cast ! so with the other improved parts etc i think the 06 was a good choice (just 7 days to go ) allthough a sorted 05 would have been ok . Hey Mr cardiff , what happened man chocolate sprokets ! ? was the chain + sproket on its way out or do you think you ve had a bad make of chain that we need to steer clear of ?

    So they pulled out all the stops and you had it ? I m gettn mine from Fowlers in the end shopped around could have got an import abit cheaper but they were closer and had 1 in stock so i thought it would be better for any warranty claims etc instead of the wharehouse in Essex.I guess building it up and PDI was going to take longer than a MX and so there wasnt enough staff to sort it .I would have done it myself but they have to do it to validate the warranty so they say ! Have you heard any more about the laws against trail riding on unsurfaced roads which is trying to be rushed through parliament ? There was a write up in T+MX a couple of weeks ago about it but ive heard nothing since.

    Yes i am very keen to get my hands on it , dont forget i havent even seen one yet ! I Didnt make it to the English dirt bike show,and have been v busy at work. I did buy a RM450Z two months ago which was a second hand USA import mint cond , thought after riding moto x for a long time in my early years that it would be adaptable to use in enduros and trails /mountain tracks etc how wrong i was ! handled great but 4 speed cr box , no e start ,no stator/ rotor available off the shelf etc and what i thought was a noisey engine! i kept it for only 1 event (2 weeks) good bike but i felt for mx only. As regarding the overheating , i was glad to hear from you PrivateIdaho as the Honda was my second choice !!!!! i will be fitting the fan 4sure and checking the rad gaurds frequently , i guess any bike in deep bogs generally STUCK for any amount of time will eventually boil and common sense is the only solution...GET IT WIDE OPEN, HANG ON ,AND GET THROUGH IT QUICKER!

    Thanks For That Dave , Do You Know How The Bikes Compare Back 2 Back When Ridden ? Its A Bit Difficult To Get An Honest Opinion Over Here From Dealers As Of Course They Only Want To Sell You The One They Have In Stock, Which Of Course Is Always The Best. Many Thanks Mark
