In sand or soft terrains that is, slightly move ur butt to the backseat hi-throttle it and let the front ent float over, avoinding it from sink in.

Hope this was helpfull.
Thank you, this helps a lot. I think I will have to prop my bike on a stand and and have a helper take some measurements. I may be able to mimic my riding position and a proper comfortable position and see where my equipment should be. Thanks again.

I didn't want to quote all the pictures over again, but they were really cool pictures too!

What's the logic behind this? I must admit to riding on the ball of my foot at times

More secure with less effort. Quicker responses to the gear or brake levers.

Fair enough. I think I tend to slide my feet back so there less exposed to getting hit by sticks etc.

If u hit some hoops big enough to get u airborn when u land if ur on the ball of ur foot 2 things can happen,
1- ur foot can slip away off the peg (u loose control and crash)
2- giving the weight of ur body (& whatever ur backpackin') ur ankle will strech down gravely. U can injure it or break it.
A friend of mine is a motocross racer, he borke it that way, he showed me his vid 2 years ago on youtube (i'll try to dig out this vid and post it).

Noise from frontend?

So I have a weird noise come from the front end area of the bike which I am not sure about. I thought it was the front wheel bearings so I checked them and one was a little rough so I replaced them but recently I had a friend take the bike for a spin and the noise still seems to be there. It starts at about 10 to 15 MPH and gets louder with speed...my next guess is speedometer related (wheel drive unit, cable, speedo itself). Have you guys ever had a problem with the speedo, cable, or drive unit and if so what were the symptoms and the fixes?

I suggest u remove da cable completely off the bike and ride it, next check front brake system ( pads, rotor etc...)...

I pulled the wheel tonight and the speedometer drive seems smooth and I pulled the drive cable out of the sheath and it seems to have grease. I guess I will just disconnect the cable and have my buddy come over and test ride it (recovering from a broke foot). I recently replaced pads after a fork seal trashed them but the noise was there before that so changing the pads didn't help or hurt the situation.

I don't know if it's same part we're talking about here, check the box assy of the speedo (end speedo cable right side of wheel) part # is 54600-29F00 it also contain moving parts that can cause it.
