Got to do a little riding on Saturday. My buddies bike is still in pieces, so he did some filming.

I'll see if my gopro captured anything.

PS - fork valving. Awesome! So supple, tracks so much better now. No feelings of front tucking either.

It's all fun and games until someone looses a nut.

Yeah, and I lost one while riding. Well, a bolt really. I kinda like the open feeling of no handguards. Tempted to try a race without them. And I also had to tighten my handlebars, which could be seen at the end of that video. Came down from a jump and woooh there they go.

Sorry to say, but after years of frustration we will not be supporting BMW motorcycles at this time.

You just reminded me to order up some sort of mirror for my bike.

I gather no one knows of any alternate clutch levers that will work on the 450?

We eyeballed some levers in my local shop.. from memory some Yamaha one seemed to be a close fit. Compared some my spare ones with the ones the shop had in stock. Brake lever is definitely same as KTM. Hope that helps.

If there is some time this week we might be able to down there and have another look.

Thanks for the headsup. I forgot I still got a few YZ parts in my garage from my 144. I'll pull out an old clutch lever and see how they stack up.

I'm going to look at my throttle tonight. It seems to require a bit more than 1/4 turn to go WFO. Maybe it's my imagination? I may do the ol' PVC trick to increase the diameter of the throttle tube cam.

Was never big fan of alien looking things from Acerbis.. What are you looking to achieve?

The day light bulb has to be replaced so it has prompted me to look at light options. more light less power consumption is a factor I am keeping in mind. I beat the hell out of this bike on rocky trails so I am looking at lights that are not in added on but in place of the main light (figure I would end up breaking them off.)

Bobby your G450 not only looks different, (and cooler than shit) it sounds totally different than a regular 450 does. Did you see the video I posted in the sandblast thread of all the starts on SS7? Think you're in there. Sounds wicked different.
