You can get a brand new Leftover Kawi for $4999 OTD in Oregon right now..... I'm not sure what the Yamahas are going for. I do love the Yamaha front fork, it is superior to the kawi front end. I have a '15 kawi with factory connection and it's still ... more »

Run the same top end all season, when your back tire gets worn, flip it around and don't change your stock chain,sprockets or grips all season long(just lube the shite out of them) Oh, and zip tie stitch any broken plastics......

Added reply in a thread Is this an OEM Alum CR500 or a custom 500AF? 4/19/2016 7:29 AM

Just heard from the shop, stock spec range in fork oil is 220cc-280cc he put 250cc in. I am going to drop it to 220cc and see what happens there. He said he put 170lbs of nitrogen in the shock. He hasn't gotten the spring rates to me yet. They weren't ... more »
Added reply in a thread 2005 YZ125 suspension question 4/17/2016 8:42 PM
I think it's sprung for a 170lb rider stock, 30lbs above that is not going to work with stock springs. It worked great before but would bottom out if I thought about jumping, so it needed help. The bike is awesome! I can't believe how torquey it is. ... more »

Hey guys, for the hell of it, I took my sons '05 YZ125 and re-sprung it for me a 200lb vet rider. He is in the middle of two ACL failures and won't be riding for a while so I jumped at the opportunity to take it over. I had my local shop spec the springs ... more »
