    When did you start riding and on what?

    I started pushing around a gurrellie bronco with no engine in 1975.. and graduated to a 1974 honda mr 50 that I still have. My dad bought the bike new from a local honda dealer that had it tucked out back in 1976 for $249.38! (Ive got the reciept). I won my very first 1st place trophy on that bike in the winter of 77,doing a sno-fest hillclimb in the 0-80cc class! I was up against xr75s and rm80s on a snow covered hill. Then in 1980 I got a mint 1974 honda mt 125 and took all the glass off it so it looked like a real dirtbike!! Sold that bike for my 1st street bike,1984 honda vt500 ascot.. after a few years of 750 interceptors , 1000 hurricaines ,harley softail, I got back into dirt with a 74 xl350, then a 86 xr600,89 xr600 ,89 cr500, 03crf450, and my current bikes a 01 xr400(street legal) 05crf450(I race that in the vet class) and a 02 flht 103" bagger.. oh yea I for got to mention the absolutley mint 1973 kawasaki h2 triple with 6000 original miles that I cut up to make a drag bike out of:excuseme: I still have that too!!
  3. I bought a xr 400 with an eline d/s kit that had been installed at one time then put in a box. The fender that came with the kit was broke so I mounted the ufo taillite/blinkers assembly to the stock xr fender.. not sure if I like the way it looks. My ? is Ive seen a taillite/plate holder that looks like it bolts over the exsisting taillite (stock xr fender), but I cant seem to find where to buy one, or a new mx rear fender, in honda red, that fits nice. thanks

    rear shock

    the shock eyelets measure 3/4" inch.. spring on shock now is very stiff. I weigh 195+ and even though shock is bagged out I cant bottom out. where would I look for those shocks you mentioned? thanks

    rear shock

    looking for a rear shock for my RDS-125X roketa.. it measures 10-3/4 from center of eyes...the bike has a straight swingarm,not like cr50 or z50s. I dont race the bike so I dont need the best shock out there, just an upgrade over stock. The shock looks like I could rebuild it.. anyone have specs on oil amount and nitro pressure?? how about seals?? thanks guys
