so i decided this winter to give the bike a small facelift. i redid my lighting kit and got away from bulbs as they draw a lot of power and upgraded to led's. got new exhaust,wheels blah blah..........pics
new axle blocks,did'nt need them but they matched everything

new trail tech,old one is getting worn out

new battery...new horn in box

this gives you an idea how small the battery is

fmf powerbomb header..noticed big difference in the bottom to mid range.the bike is a lttle too high strung for tight woods so i figured i'd try it out

fmf q4 exhaust..once again helped quiet it down and give me more bottom end

just a random shot of the bike..i'll get more pictures later

they're the axle blocks zilla. they were on back order and i just got them today,not instsalled yet. they are what you're axle bolt slides through on the swingarm for chain adjustment. i'll get pictures up when they're on. and thanks novis for the compliment. i don't think i'm going to do anything with the graphics but i'm going to get the clearcoat off the frame and redo.

i finally took it out for a little while. lost some speed with the 52 tooth on the rear but it really helped where i ride. nothing like going down the road and jumping into the field.

That looks sweet. The entire rear wheel setup looks gangsta.

i thought those were for the axle but hasn't sure and since they were not installed made it harder to know.

also about the rad hose, you said you are trying to keep it cooler, have you thought about wrapping the header in tape to keep the heat in the pipe? could help keep the temp around those hoses a little cooler.

yeah zilla i've thought about that as an option too. i hate to wrap that new pipe now but i kept the stock header pipe. and yes i wrapped up a little more money into than i wanted too.

The heat on the hoses will only make a difference when stopped. Even thenit won't make much of a difference since everything is open.

oh ok, right now the temp. is still in the high 50's low 60's so i don't have any trouble. it's only when it's really hot and i'm in a tight spot that it get's hot but as long as you keep the rpm's up a little it's fine. and thanks for the compliments motoman

i have heard it really doesn't work. but is just what i heard. i have never had a problem running a 50/50 or 60/40 mix of water and antifreeze before.

I myself can vouch for the lp stuff. Huge difference in temps for me. I've heard alot of people saying the engine ice works great too.
