It's fun but can't rev it past 5k until she is broken in. 0% sale = new bike.

Riding local this weekend but am up for a Pachaug loop next week.

Red, you still got that pile, want to let me test ride for a day?
He calls your bike a PILE and then asks you to borrow it for the day!

Holy crow Batman!

There's a couple of us going out. Planning on an 8am arrival departing shortly thereafter. It's going to be a good morning for a ride so I hope you can make it.

That's why he has number 1 on his plate. That was the H/S champ from last year, Nick Hunter. Those guys make it look easy.

Well, Im not really sure. I took it all apart and tested the pickup and ignition coils as it wasnt getting spark.

The pickup wasnt reading the correct resistance, only about 20ohms. I think the manual said between 1100-2100?

Anywho I was pissed and didnt want to take it all apart, so I was going to push it back in the garage when I figured I should try it again. I did and it was right around 1700ohms

WEIRD.

Anywho put the plug back on the ignition wire and lo-and-behold, it had spark!

Too bad the damn thing stranded me at work yesterday lol

you said it man - it is a total cream puff. adult owned and maintained......mint!

it has been my trail bike for the past year and a half. I got it well used but with a recent rebuild from the former owner - a Razee tech. it is basically a parts bin bike. It still runs strong - but it is showing its age with things like stripped bolts and the controls are not as tight as a newer bike (i.e- front brakes suck and clutch is heavy). it could use some new tires and a rear brake rotor as far as parts go. On the service side it could use a valve check and it is due for an oil change ( I changed every two rides with the filters). It is a perfect beginner bike to get your feet wet and see if dirt bikes are for you - that or a great "spare bike" for when your friends visit. It is plated and has a title - so that is a plus. I would sell it to anyone here for $1,000 (parted out it would easily bring more then that). I have a few spare parts, 2 air filters and 3 or 4 new sets of oil filters...... this is not a sales pitch - but if you are interested I'd talk to you more about it.

It does have a hydraulic clutch. I have bled it - it helps only so much.
So you really think you can handle the raw power of The PILE!?
