I notice the rims have a Takasago decal, what rims did you end up going with?

Got the parts back from polishing a little while ago, been busy around the shop so I didn't get a chance to upload these right away. You may have seen them on social media already.

It's fine, just run it. Makes zero difference unless you're trying to balance the wheel for high speed asphalt drag races (which is what cwtoyota was getting at). The 3rd hole on the rear is to give you the option of using a second rim lock, which I ... more »

+1 for Cahuilla yesterday. Did a moto on the main, but originally went out there with the intention of spending some time out on their off road loop/single track...I did just that the rest of the day, and it was phenomenal. Normally I'm out there on

How's the turnout these days? I need a good night of the week to ride, I keep getting caught up on the weekends.

You're chasing ounces in wheels when there's pounds to be saved just by switching brands of tire though

Just out of curiosity, why do you want wheels lighter than stock?

You don't necessarily have to spend $1400 for a decent set of wheels. FasterUSA has wheelsets with American made hubs (machined in house) starting at $850 with Excel rims, and $979 with DID rims. Nothing Chinese made. Call and ask for Vince if you need ... more »

I think it's unavoidable. I can pretty much find bias in any news outlet or journalist. If it comes from a human, there's gotta be at least some bias (and no, I'm not advocating for AI determining what is credible news or not haha). If it isn't obvious ... more »

Yeah, just gotta plug stuff off really good. It was a fine grit glass bead. I think when we get the motor back we might try to hit it with a vapor blast though. Should give it a little nicer of a finish.

Stripped, blasted and filed, off to be polished and then clear anodized. We've talked about going this route on a build for a while now, and if they turn out how we're hoping they should, they should stay looking good for a long time

Is there a reason you're not just getting it from Buchanan's? Spend the extra money and save yourself the headache, they're really your only option on that application

Yeah, where did you hear that? Not a fan of CARB or anyone that supports what that organization does, my interest is piqued.

China Myron. Huge two stroke guy, very reasonably priced and he has a dyno now. He will make your bike rip. He's located in Lake Elsinore, CA. If you need contact info just let me know.

One of our radiators was pretty mangled, so we sent both up to Fontana Radiator to have the one repaired and both inspected. They did a great job on our YZ at a reasonable price and turnaround time. Goodbye hoses:

Slowly but surely. I'm trying to update this as we go, but I get caught up with work around the shop. It's also a waiting game too though, with having to send some of this stuff out to be repaired. We cracked our swingarm during tear down, so we just
