EVS neck brace, in alot of ways it is nicer than the Leatt because there is much more surface on the shoulders to spread the load of a impact. Plus it is $175 versus about $ 300+ for the Leatt.

No wonder they're always blowing up with you wringing their scrawny little necks like that!

I would love to be able to jump like that and not.. you know, die at the landing.

If you think about it my 125 puts out about the same horsepower as your GS and weights 200+ pounds less....certainly easier to jump and easier to land.

And about as much torque as the GS's starter motor :)

I rode my sons bike (99 yz 125) on Wed and it didn't seem right so I put it on the lift to check it out, did a compression test and it was only 100 lbs or so. I puuled the head to see what was up and saw that the head was dented all over, Sorry for the crappy Bberry pics.



And the piston looked like this, Had to be a broken ring?



When I pulled the Power Valve arm cover i saw this,GOPRO shot)





Power valve control arm broke so the power valve was floating around and must have hit the piston/ring and did this,



Luckily the cylinder looks ok, I have to find a power valve arm and order a topend kit for it....Englishtown is less that 2 weeks away....

We had severe thunderstorms today and tornado warnings within a couple miles of here but managed to service and wash the other bikes, 89 is ready to ride.



And the 11 yz is good to go, 12.2 hrs on it already!
