    What do you think of the Pitster X4R?

    Hell yeah it is! I'm trying not to look at it with 'buy me' eyes.

    Pitster X2r wont stay running

    Wouldn't hurt to check the connections on your coil also. The connectors on mine were loose and arcing all over the place. Made a huge difference.

    X2 and X4 side by side

    Awww Crap! Now I gotta save for another bike!

    Footpegs for X2 ???

    Fastway pegs here... Love 'em and they add to the looks I think. They are damn expensive though.

    Magnetic drain plugs for pit bike

    Radio shack... rare earth neodymium miniature magnets very cheap. Or ebay.. There is an oil screen inside the engine case but you have to remove the clutch cover to get at it. May as well clean the centrifugal filter while you're at it. Counter sink a small hole in your oil drain bolt. Mix up some jb weld. Put a dab of jb weld on the bottom of the mini magnet and plop her into the hole you drilled into the oil drain bolt. Walla... instant magnetic oil drain bolt and damn strong magnet at that!

    Engine oil...

    Rotella 15w40 is what I run and I change it often. We-don't-need-no-dir-ty oil... all in all just another brick in the wall... LoL. If money wasn't an issue, I'd run amsoil all the way. Speaking of which... you guys should treat your centrifugal filter to a cleaning at least once a year if not more often. Get yourself a clutch cover engine gasket and have at it. You'll be surprised to find all the gunk you'll see in there and you'll be glad you got it out!

    Fastway wide footpegs

    Although I got a deal on the latest purchase I made locally (honda z50) and a bunch of parts, I hadn't realized how much of a deal it was until I looked these puppies up. http://www.adventurersworkshop.com/fastway_footpegs.htm Immediately these fastway wide pegs came out of the free parts box and went onto my x2r. Man they compliment the looks of the bike nicely and when sitting on the bike they sure feel like they'll provide way more balance when jumping.

    how this look for a start?

    Wow, that's alot of washers, I just looked at the photo also. I've seen the need for maybe 1steel or a couple of paper thin nylon washers on a worn swing arm/frame but 8 steel washers? Looks like the swingarm was pieced together with the frame. Interesting but I'd pass.

    Help choosing the right pit bike

    Ok Nate, btw thanks twitchy. Honestly, right now, I don't even want to hear about bad luck with my new x2r, this is giving me a headache. Actually, twitchymeister, lol, I ride my honda crf50 daily, I've already logged some decent hours on it without a problem. Far as I'm concerned it's a killer wheelie machine and is the easiest bike to ride them on. who would have thought a semi-auto could be so fun! Sorry for getting sidetracked, now back to the thread topic guys...

    Help choosing the right pit bike

    Man Nate, I hope people dont take that the wrong way. Almost makes it look like I kicked the hell out of it or something and broke it. No I didn't fudge it up, it was that way from the factory. I'm not the kick happy type.
