Thanks! Yep. You can make the newer style protectors fit with a little cutting, heat gun, and a couple extra zip ties.

Added reply in a thread How long should you keep a bike? 5/10/2021 8:16 PM

I always convince myself at about 35 hours to do a refresh to keep me interested and prevent me going all out for a new bike. Usually spend a bunch of money on suspension, graphics, chain/sprockets, piston/rings. Then I sell it at 40 anyway and make ... more »

A little scotchbrite and she's back to new after every ride

Thanks! Yep finished it up for the most part. I really wanted to go with a different color scheme but that will have to wait until I can get some stuff shipped from Japan 🤪. The 144 gave it a little more bottom and a bunch more mid. Now I just have to

I was looking during my build too. There's one place in South Austin but I couldn't ever get ahold of them. I actually considered buying a small setup to start doing it myself and offering for other moto peeps. Check this thing out - https://www.dimecitycycles.com/micro-vapor-hone.html ... more »

x2 I run my axle all the way back on my YZ125 for this exact reason. Front end felt a little twitchy in the bumps and a little too active in the corners but moving the axle back made a surprisingly big difference.

I'm not for or against braces but it's nice to hear somebody else with an understanding of research and sampling methodology. You're speakin my language.

The American dream. I periodically need new displays for my company's projects. I bookmarked your web address and I'm happy to divert future business to a fellow moto bro. Good luck!

What do you guys think 2022 holds for the Gas Gas? I think we're all expecting a new KTM/Husky for 2022. Will they carry on with the current Gas Gas as a legacy model or move to the next gen with the others after only 1 year? Bike looks freakin rad BTW. ... more »

I'm 6'1", 180lbs. I went from a CRF450 to a YZ250F to an FC350. I'd say the YZ was more comfortable and I felt like I was really on top of the bike and manhandling the chassis. Hard to explain but the FC actually had a stiffer feeling even with the steel ... more »

Would ya look at that. I guess in the end I don't mind supporting Pryme even at a premium. Cam seems like a good dude and I want to see businesses like his thrive.

He's not shipping right now because of Covid but have you checked out Tribal Star out of Japan? He makes poly or carbon tank covers for YZs and RMs. Can choose black, white, or carbon. Cheaper than a Clark tank, less hassle than dye and you can always ... more »

I was actually just about to make one myself. That is sweet but good lord $55 for a kids brake lever!?!

Added reply in a thread Stacyc vs. PW50 for Kid 1/25/2021 1:10 PM

My kid will be 3 in March and has been on the Stacyc for around 6 months. He freakin loves it and has put some SERIOUS hours on it. The only real negatives to the Stacyc are the long reach for the brake (he still can't reach it), and the fact that he ... more »

Maybe I’m late to the party but for anyone working on these builds I highly recommend Pryme MX scotchbrite wheels for your bench grinder or dremel. After years of doing it by hand this is a game changer.
