Nice pics Navyman!


We spent most of the day today at a facility that has a Moto-X track and a Cross Country track all at one location and put some much needed time on the bikes. Here's a couple of pics from our day too.

I would highly recommend your method over trying to do it from the inside of the airbox. The extra 5 minutes to remove the carb would have saved 20, and some blood.

Muzzy

I have about 200 miles on the Muzzy. Love the hell out of it.

The rep at Muzzy said it would get quieter after the packing expanded in the can. I haven't noticed a real change in sound. If so, subtle and maybe more refined. After my first short ride, I was afraid it would lose some of the great sound. Hasn't yet, and it's not going to....................

Yea, its not too loud IMO. We've got about 2 hours on the system so far, I do have the quiet core also but we wont put it in unless we're at a location that requires it.

Gotta go, we're gonna go put some miles on the street bike this afternoon.

And no, she wont be riding dressed like this!

Have a good weekend all!

Randy.

You must be in a much warmer part of the country if that shot is current - Brrr! Did you have any trouble bottoming the KLX on a jump now that you've lowered it?

Navyman when you get to the GreatNW be sure to PM me; there are plenty of hills around here we can find- I live just south of Olympia and drive to McChord.

does anyone have any pictures of the stock pipe drilled out? I'm thinking of going this route for now- thanks!

Sounds great Wedge. I am from Idaho originally so I love the NW. I am looking forward to putting in a few seriously fun rides before the snow flies - does the snow fly there? I've heard there are places in WA that it doesn't. I'll PM you as we get closer - I project July/August, but I will be on the Navy's schedule again so it might vary a bit.
