    yep. 450 is a nice bike....

    kinda kick myself sometimes for not getting one, but i do love my 700. its definitely more of a kick back bike, so thats why i bought it. when the funds show up, a serious hp banshee is my next project....

    No wonder you don't have $$$$$ to play and buy RC stuff anymore. You've stepped up your "play toys" 10 notches compared to the rest of us!!!! Looks good bro. If I ever got back into doing some trail riding I'd definitely get a KTM. By far the best bike for those situations

    You spent your money well. The last three bikes I owned were Katooms. 98' 300, 00' 400 and an 02' 200. I liked the 400 the best. You'll really enjoy the 525. Get the stainless oil filters, worth the money after you change the oil a few times.

    Also, see if you can find some neoprene fork protectors. With the inverted forks, you can cut one of them in half and still have enough for both forks. Take the spare and cut enough to cover the rear shock's lower mount. That bearing is really exposed to the elements. Be careful not to hit that with a pressure washer.

    Dude, your toys are AWESOME! Can't wait till I get my truck hooked up, then it's on to the quad. BTW, I got a 'zuki eiger 400. I want to get new wheels and tires, louder exhaust ( ), and maybe some other trick items lol. Any advise on tires? I mostly ride on:

    Dirt=50%
    Mud=25%
    street 25%

    The place where I ride is 1/4 street so I need a good, long lasting tire. Thanks, and sorry for hijacking your thread.

    good tire choice. the stock raptor tires kinda blow. not much traction..
    still gotta get me an updated set for mine...

    as usual, stock sucks. so i had to upgrad a little. fmf powerbomb exhaust, and factory 4.1 silencer, and a jd jetting jet kit. also added asv levers, but i forgot to take pictures of them. rode it new years weekend for the first time. dang, what a bike. sure wish i could ride it to its full potential. that will take some time though..

    If you ever get tired of flats, try these...tireballs. I ran them in my KTM 200 back in '02. A little pricey, but flat tires are eliminated and they act as a suspension upgrade as well.
