glad when FMF builds a pipe for it so we can uncork this terribly restricted little bike.
There is supposed to be an FMF already that fits -- also, a full system Big Gun EVO X with spark arrestor, and quiet (92-94 db) insert with it.
Four Stroke Works has a larger header pipe, that users say gives them power gains even with the stock muffler.

Post here just how far up you were actually able to get those forks -- 6" is maybe not do-able. Mine are up 1-3/4 inches, along with the Kouba "X1" lowering links, giving a seat lowering of a little over 2 inches. I might cut my seat down, too, for more lowering.
Those forks will probably need shimming (like my bike did), since there is a full 2mm difference in diameter, of the top (where the clamps are now) and the fork tube down where you want to put the top clamps -- I was thinking the clamps look like cast aluminum, and with that much bending, might crack in half when tightened up enough to cinch down 2mm more.
