Some things transcend a language barrier, that was powerful, and haunting. Not going to lie, that choked me up.

I would see what, if anything, can be salvaged from the motor. Crank, clutch, cyl, etc. Price out new stuff from the cheapest US dealer you can find, and go from there. It will be expensive, but not 4G. Would help if you knew someone who could do this ... more »

Interesting Aj, because I rode my homeys 09 Kaw 250, and I loved it too, for the same reasons. I'm 6'6" and 260 lbs in gear, that bike had excellent ergos, and actually didn't mind the motor. Excellent platform for an AF conversion.

Added reply in a thread What's up with MXA? 10/24/2014 10:54 AM
As far as bike tests go, I still like what MXA writes. Only mag I buy, and I usually only buy when bike test season is on. Like reading their reviews on bikes I never have any intention of buying. Obviously their style irritates some people, but I believe ... more »

Not if there was a machine gun nest, full of guys told to let loose if anyone went through in the first five laps. Of course, that rule would have to be enforced on the crew manning the weapons. Is the AMA capable of enforcing ANY rules? I see flaws ... more »

You're talking about a Zip cut wheel for a grinder, correct? Not a Dremel high speed hand tool.

Not that big of a job, really. If it was me, I'd zip cut the old one off, drill the frame, and plug weld the new one in, from the backside. You need to have a shoulder cut into the new standoff, and drill the hole smaller then the size of the actual ... more »

Look at Kijiji in Alberta, and the prices they're asking for bikes up here. Fucking ridiculous what people think used bikes are worth, they've lost their minds.

Aj, if I was doing it again, that's what I would do. Paul Stoffers actually wanted me to get an 08 450 Honda frame, because those are the best ones to do. Easy to take the old rails out, and fab new ones. I decided not to spend the extra coin going that ... more »

It broke at the spars, because the lower frame failed. Thinking maybe it was movement at the front mounts, the frame weakened, and bang. On an iPhone, I really had to expand the pic, to as it was a 250, with a rear headstay.

AJ, you might be right, that's been around a while. Most guys don't seem to have an issue with heat treating, including my MPS fiasco. Thinking about it more now, did the guy use an MPS style headstay? Round dowel from spar to spar, with two ears welded ... more »
