  1. you could make headlight out of an aftermarket headlight. I use an old xr200 light and a 3v LED with 2 lithium batteries for my son's yz125. We needed it for and endro we ran a couple of years ago when lights where required. It worked great and got him through tech inspection. The batteries don't last long if the light is left on for too long (maybe 1hr or 2) but should work for a short distance. I used a piece of plexiglass to make the bulb adapter that fit in place of the 12v bulb
  2. Check the valve clearances if they are not in spec the motor will be hard to start, and will back fire.
  3. Dave. If you can use urethane boat paint and a foam roller and it will look almost as if it was sprayed on . I used it when I painted an old boat i had a few years back. just be sure that you use the brushable thinner in will slow down the drying and help the paint to level out. paint on a day when it not too hot and work in the shade. You can find the paint at west marine. Good luck. Ted

  5. You guys that think loud pipes are cool need to think again . If they don't hear us they won't know we are there most of the time, if you keep using loud pipes it's just going attract more negative attention to our sport and give the anti motorcycle people more ammunition to close up our riding areas ,both public and private. my son and i race hare scrambles in Va. and in some of the counties where the races are held we need to have permits from the county to hold the race. it is getting harder and harder to obtain the permit. So please think about it ....... The noise does hurt somebody...US!!!! I've been riding 20+ years and would like for my son to be able to say the same.
