keep in mind that if you have any steel in your frame (blind nuts) they will dissolve in the anodizing solution and ruin the finish in those areas. good luck getting them out of the frame.....................................

plenty of both in AZ, no hurricanes EVER make it here. AND its a constitutional carry state. Welcome to free america. Moto isnt the best of the selection. But if youre interested in 2nd amendment activities, there is nowhere better than AZ.

NMA still allowed 115 a few years back, they were a tiny bit faster than a 112 but usually had cooling issues and there was never any reason to go bigger than 112 is the AMA races were limited to 112.

pacific crest can get it damn close to new, but your best option is to stop bashing into shit and keep an extra pipe on hand! or get a pipe cage made.

CP, cosworth and JE all make pistons that are better than OEM, not like theres anything wrong with the OE setup, but there are improvements to be made.

this. could also have a groove worn in the master cylinder piston where the adjuster hits it, causing it to hang up. besindes that, get an air assisted brake buddy. vacuum bleeds better than anything else.

did you have the rotating assembly balanced? did you have runout and true-ness inspected by a crank specialist? OEM crank bearings? different piston weight than OEM can do it, as well as crank weight without balancing.

its a shame that GH was the gnarliest, biggest, baddest track the GP guys ran on all year. We get it, you have brown teeth and lost the war a few hundred years ago. Its ok to admit defeat.
