Congrats McFear, it looks as though at least a rack extension plate and some AndyStrapz are in order!!

well it is stock, cept its got a uni filter in it, and its got the 1 1'8th bars on it.

planning on putting a bashplate on it, and maybe a rear rack. its not often i carry luggage so i dunno bout that.

possibly some barkbusters, which ones fit?

was thinking about the vapor unit, but then i lose accuracy with the odo and i dont want that.

possibly gonna get a 2nd seat and redo it, and keep the stock on in the shed or something. i got an airhawk, but i dont particularily want to take it with me offroad incase something happens. they arent that cheep to fix or replace

going to be upgrading the suspension, thinking about the guy up at beerwah, but i cant have downtime on this bike during the week, so i might just get tougher springs and keep the rebound stock on the rear and get some intiminators for the front.

any other suggestions?

Dr mcfear, give Ron a call at Alexandra Hills on 0424505426, does the forks for the MX shop at Capalaba. Can't do anything for about 4 weeks though due to supercross setups.

Here's mine with minimal mods, but heaps spent on the suspension (front and back) and you wouldn't know it was the same bike. IMS tank, Ego bark busters, BnB bash plate, BBq rack on back - makes carrying anything so much easier and protects the Staintune when I drop it.

Good luck with your project.

Good stuff McFear.

Grab yourself a copy of the latest Trailzone magazine and have a look at Jay Foremans white beast, its friggin awesome!!

If only Suzuki built the bike like Jay's, they could stick $11-12K on them and they would sell like hotcakes!!
