Chad, don't listen to these people! Do what you want, you earned it!!!! Still smooth, just not as fast, but still faster than the large portion of the racers in the world.

It looks like the 'factory' really wanted that seat cover to stay on with the pin/bolt/??? holding it together in the back.

T-Fish on here has some of his graphics and they are pretty damn cool! I know he's in the process of getting some more custom ones done. I'm thinking about redoing the look on mine.

That won't affect the performance at all. Those are the outer tubes, so it's cosmetic damage only.

Looks like a freshly painted/powdered frame. Did you make sure you filed the paint/powder off so some steel showing where the CDI mounts. It has to be grounded? If not, there is the problem.

Try putting a seat cover over another one. It will be 'marginally', dare I say it, "harder"! LOL

Add me to the broken femur club. Broke mine 9 weeks ago today. Just going between a cane and nothing right now. Not much fun, that's for sure.

Reply to Want To Feel Old? 11/29/2019 10:13 AM

In the shot showing the bottom of the piston, it looks like there was a flaw because of the freshly broken coloration, but it doesn't start where the edge of the piston was. You can see that oil/gas has seeped into the casting at some point.
