  1. First question should be is she comfortable with the ones on the bike? If they aren't then you need to figure out why.
  2. I have a pair of the Cyclops 3800 bulbs in my FZ1 and love them. I can actually see something at night now. I have one in my WR450 but haven't had it out since installing it.
  3. I know this is an old thread but great info on installing a D/S kit on an XR.
  4. Looking to swap out my stock muffler for an aftermarket piece. I'm looking for one that is as quiet or quieter than the stock with a GYRT insert and much lighter in weight and doesn't cost a fortune.
  5. In the dirt I want as quiet as possible without choking up the bike. On the street I want a little sound but no where near obnoxious. I believe paying attention and staying out of blind spots on the street is much more effective than loud exhaust. I find by the time I hear a bike it would already be to late.
  6. I really want one of these in addition to my current bike. Having been in the r/c car hobby and seeing what is possible with batteries, motors and speed controls I'm curious to see what's coming. It would be really cool to be able to adjust the speed control through a smart phone app.
  7. I tend to push forward with my legs and feet while leaning forward over the bars.
  8. I keep mine until they catastrophically fail, get wrecked, not worth fixing or start nickel and diming me. My current rig is a 2002 Silverado K2500HD with about 205K miles on the 6.0 and still running strong. Right now it needs the tow haul switch repaired, mirror switch replaced and the a/c recharged. In the past it's had the auto headlight switch replaced, 2 fuel pumps( the first replacement was a cheapo Chinese pump the the sending unit failed) and a washer pump. I'm on my 3rd set of tires and still on the original brakes which will need replacing soon.
  9. Without tearing into it the costs are an unknown til you do. It could be anything from a bit of moisture locking it up to a full blown meltdown. But for $150 and some diligent parts collecting you could have yourself a bike that will last for quite some time.
  10. I just switched from a lead acid type battery in my WR450 to a Shorai. The lead acid would drain pretty quick if the bike didn't fire on the 1st few tries. I bought a Shorai last winter and installed in the bike. The last time the bike was ran was about 4 years ago and after a few minutes and about a dozen tries to start I realized I left the fuel off, turned on the fuel and a few more cranks later in fired up. The stock lead acid battery would never have lasted that long and left me kicking. Since then I've started it quite a few times without running very long between starts and it just keeps cranking it up.
  11. I'd buy it for $150
  12. Looking through this thread really makes me want to build one of these hooligan machines.
    Bought one for my 2004 WR450F after gone through three standard batteries. One of the issues I had with the stock type battery was it's lack of any real capacity. If the bike didn't start within 3-4 tries out came the kick start. After reading the reviews on the Shorai I decided to bite the bullet and pay the extra cost over the stocker. After installing the new Shorai on my WR that has been sitting untouched for over 4 years it was time to bring the beast to life. Having not been ran for as long as it had it took quite a bit of effort and multiple tries to get it to fire up and run. With the stock battery I would have been kicking it over long before it started, not the Shorai it kept cranking strong until it started. I will be upgrading the stock battery on my FZ1 with a Shorai as well
  13. If I remember right Weyerhauser closed road access after the state turned them down on the tax break they wanted. It pretty much shut down every place that I had been hunting for years.
  14. Klim pants are expensive as well.
