I pretty much ordered everything Pro Circuit makes for this bike. I am still waiting on a skid plate and a few small items.
I wonder how much HP this bike makes compared to Baggett's? I know his motor is built to last about 2 hours but I can run a few things he can't. My bike runs the Steel exhaust but only because I can take the baffle out and it adds hp. It doesn't meet the AMA sound requirements but it isn't any louder than my 2008 KX250F and I won't be getting sound tested anywhere I race. .The P.C. guys also told me to do this if I wasn't an AMA pro.
I also got it mapped to run MR12 which is leaded oxygenated gas. VP says this fuel produces more hp than any other fuel.
I also didn't buy the A-Kit suspension or the works tranny. I did get the tranny polished and got all the works internals for the stock suspension. Now all I have to do is heal so I can ride it. Only four more months. I am counting the days. I rode it on a trail and it is the fastest 250f I have ever owned!

Wow, between the two bikes in your profile pic, and this, you have some serious money to blow. How is that TM?? Does it ride as exotic as it looks? With this much packed into one KX, I expect to see you on the line at Steel City.

my only question is.. is this really worth it? if you're not racing anywhere where you won't get sound tested or protested, whats the real point behind all the money put into this bike?

I like trick shit and it looks like there is a lot of it there! What was the goal besides a shit ton of power and great suspension? Did you put it on a lightweight diet of mag, ti, aluminum and carbon as well? I'm getting in the mood to toss a little money at something myself. You just need to help me move one more bike out the door!

Simple, because he can. I know dimwits that spend that much money on gambling and have nothing to show for it. I had an employee once who probably spent that much on drugs. He has nothing to show for it either, including a job...LOL

I am going to put a Ti bolt kit on it. I have 2 friends Nemann that may be interested. I will give them a call.
I am going to race it but it will just be at my local track and it doesn't do sound testing and is in the middle of no where. If I do decide to race somewhere else I can always put the baffle back in. I will post some more pics in a sec.
I sold the TM to a friend. It is a great bike but I just don't feel safe on it after my wreck. The throttle has never stuck on him but he just started racing a couple of months ago.

I've spent that much in one night in the "old days". No, it wasn't that much fun. Rather had the bike. Oh, BTW, nice bike.

The older I get, the faster I was. Posting without a cast on is fun!

I bet that bike runs like a bat out of hell, but, if I paid retail for all that work I would design my own graphics and let the guys who get paid to look like a billboard look like a billboard. I just don't get why anybody who isn't paid to do so would run a energy drink logo on their bike.

I agree with you, yet I have replica graphics on my own bike. Just a different team. Dunno.

I have a support ride with P.C. I know it isn't because of my speed but I have had them do a lot of bikes over the years. My moment of glory is a 7th at Ponca City in 2008. Lol

I mean 2007. I built this bike because I have been hurt and I would have spent it on racing MX if I was healthy. Now I have something to look forward too. I may ride some laps at Underground MX on Saturday but I can't jump and have to roll my left hand turns. I will post some more pics after I eat.

She is a beauty! Denny, pls take your time and heal up 100%! Just grab a lounge chair, a 6pk of beer and hang out with that baby in the garage and party with her until you are fully healed and ready to go.

beautiful job

The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value.

im not telling him how to spend his money, im just asking is there a specific reason for all the $ put in this bike? such as doing big races or just to show it off? i can only wish to have that kind of money laying around believe me

Nice bike, but lots of wasted money. Believe what you want but the exhaust the factory team is running is probally 1-2 more horse than their shelf pipe. Running a baffle or not has nothing to do with it.
