Power
Well, to start off, my engine was sent off to Forword Motion Racing for a Big Bore, Porting for Mid-Top End, and Head work. So, with that said, the Low End was unreal, like a XR650R. And Punched extremely hard into the Mid range and pulled crazy to the Top. Eric did a good job!
Suspension
Front is great! No problems on jumps and/or small stuff. Rear, well my rear suspension is blown, so it is VERY comfortable as in bouncy. Causes the tire to hook up all to well. But, I have ordered the rebuilding stuff from Gold Valve and will rewrite when I ride it.
Brakes
Front work decent, can't seem to properly bleed them, as they work fine, but feel spungy. Rear work great, locks tire. But, both toggether are worthless for the power this machine gether are worthless for the power this machine outputs.
Comments
Overall, this bike is deadly, to even the experienced! The top-end speed/power is crazy! I went from a 14/47 to a 15/45, and trashed the crap 19' rim for an 18'. With this bike, the tire is the biggest performance boost you can get, as it is ALL, I repeat, ALL to do with traction. Definatly a 100.

ohh my god!! this is by far the fastest bike i have ever ridden. from low to top this bike ripps, flip into 5th give it gas and watch out, the front wheel will fling up like no one's busness.
Suspension
the bike i rode had the suspension blown, but even still it was good
Brakes
they are ok, they will stop you but what you really need is a parachute
Comments
