Cheers mate, On the update front I have been a little lax on the progress of this build as a whole lately, I am 7 days away from being married so I have been a little occupied doing wedding things. But once I'm back on deck from the honey moon and get ... more »

yeah I kind of noticed that when we got pics at the end from practise and qualifying but let it slide, Defs got worse with corona, haha I dont wanna be that guy but its almost the four stroke version of that Kick ass two strokes thread thats upto about 1000 pages or somthing! I'm guessing not being able to get up close with the bikes in the pits affects what you can shoot but i used to really enjoy the tech side and a little back story.

Now I know I said at the beginning of this build the goal was to use as much local stuff as possible, I guess that also translates into supporting local businesses but honestly theres no way I could build this bike with as many new and premium parts

All parts get sand blast before Cerakote, needs a good profile for the coating to adhere to. I use a medium grit garnet and blast at 80 psi usually.

Got some Cerakote done, Tungsten lays down so good. I have a lot more to do on this rig.

If you go for dyeing the OEM tank I'll be interested to see the results. I have a White Clarke tank on my RM125 and it is slowly but surely going yellow from the fuel so i want to dye it black. I've dyed a few things already on my YZ build with good ... more »

That tank cap is very cool, Will you make a tool for removing it? Seeing my friends experience with his CRM tank and its flush mount cap sometimes he has to resort to a pair of pliers to get it undone, shallow centre rip and not much leverage overall ... more »
