You're not imagining things. The industry is shifting in a lot of ways right now.

ARC sent over a set of unbreakable brake and clutch levers to give us more durable and better feeling controls than the old worn out components that came on the bike.

The levers are forged, the rest is machined. We also like that they add a ... more »

I actually think they're excellent. Only thing I don't like is there are a lot of models that don't accept OEM bearings, seals, etc. Not all, but a few that we've come across have been different to OEM. Even on the Kite stuff, I changed out some bearings ... more »

Give FasterUSA a call, ask for Vince. That's me. We don't only use Excel spokes. The spokes you're referring to are a Carbon steel spoke with square headed STEEL nipples. This is the standard spoke kit we use on majority of our wheelsets as most don't ... more »

Thank you, that's pretty much the direction we were trying to go with this build, trying to show that you don't need to start with the latest and greatest to have a cool bike. I completely feel you on the mistake that is financing a four stroke that

Thank you! Going to have to get some video of it when it hits the dirt for some real sound.

Awesome, we're building that up this morning actually. I had that exact color setup on an '09 CRF250R I had a while back. Should stay looking good for a long time. Thanks for your business!

@FortyHat & @Zesiger We got them through Mike over at Exxtreme MX. Really cleans up the look of the front end. www.exxtrememx.com/

We went from a 40 to a 35 pilot, moved the needle from the 4th position to 3rd, and closed the air screw from 2.25 turns to 1.75 turns. This is a cold start up, no significant revving until just before the 1:30 minute mark. What do you guys think of ... more »

Bingo, people look in the wrong areas to save weight.

Very cool. I'm thinking of building up a Rickenbacker style bass, and I see they sell some kits online that are priced so low, it makes me wonder about the overall quality of parts included. Although I suppose you could pick and choose what pieces to ... more »

Got the grip tape from JJW Designs on and protecting our frame. The folks over at Wiseco got us running with a Made in USA piston that we're about to test run once the brake components are mounted up.

Setting up the front brake. We ... more »

We did majority of it in the blast cabinet when it was still put together, before anything was split, and then when it was rebuilt we just used a scotch brite pad on a couple of the trickier areas. You can absolutely abrasive blast the engine, but definitely ... more »

Man, this thing is trick! Love the billet, and glad you didn't end up coloring it.

I feel you. I do love the look of just a clean stock bike, how everything was meant to be, how the Japanese envisioned it. And I wish I had something to give you a little preview on the graphics, I just don't have much info on that at this time. I'm ... more »

We wouldn't have done what we did to the stock swingarm if we were going to change it out haha. I know that people do that mod on the two strokes, but I just don't really see the point. Personally, I don't care for the look of the 4T swingarm on the

Thank you very much, the brass pieces were all taped off prior to blasting. As long as you're not a complete idiot with the gun, it works just fine. 1/8" vent line, 3/16" fuel line both from Helix Racing Products. Made in USA.
