I can make a reflective LBZ sticker fashionable in 2020, you'll see. Actually probably not. Can't go out of style of you're never in style though.

These pictures illustrate why I built a bike from parts. On the throttle side of the bars alone, you have: -Brembo 12mm master cyl from 02-04 big fourstrokes. -Domino Keihin KTM throttle housing, modified and vapor blasted -G2 throttle tube with end

The brake pins and pistons are titanium, then coated. The rest of the motor internals are OEM, new, and coated. The rod pin, and big end of the rod are coated, but the bearing is not...because this shit is so slick the bearings won't spin if they're ... more »

Alright, having an old guy polish your transmission so it's real shiny is pretty cool. I think it looks neat. I was thinking I would head over to NASA and see what they're doing though. During the Apollo space program, a fella in Houston solved the problem

I got 2019 Ohlins forks from a YZ250F. Fourstrokes DO make good parts bikes, and I intend to pressure wash my twostroke regularly with a fourstroke. On the shock, good luck finding a serviceable 96-97 YZ twostroke shock. I got a 99 YZ400F shock. The

Looks like a mixture of an oxygenated race fuel and a shitty pump gas, and it cant figure out if it wants to clean the piston, or leave it full of deposits. combined with something like a blended oil like 927, so it cant decide if it wants to flash or ... more »
