They really need to do a re-design of that bike, modern brakes, suspension, frame e/t/c it would sell incredibly well...

Think about it, a lot of people want basic and easy. Look at the Yamaha TW200, they've been selling it essentially unchanged for 27 years because it's basic and it works. Aside from that, I'm a cheap bastard when it comes to toys. New stuff used to be semi-affordable but those days are gone.

Ha, yea. New bikes are hella expensive now. My buddy just picked up a 2015 KX450F, and paid as much as a solid used car. Ridiculous.

But for really Matty.....check that choke plate and uncork that pig.

The people who want simple are different from the dual sport riders who want a better equipped off road machine...People are modding the shit out of WR250R's and CRF-L's to get them off road worthy while KTM can hardly keep EXC's in stock...

I just can't get on board with new bike prices. We really wanted to get a 4-seater RZR but there's no way in hell I'm getting a toy that comes with a car note. Even the entry level machines are around $5k now. I remember my first ATC 110 was only $495 brand new...yeah that was 1983, but it's still insane.

I'm pulling the carb tonight and adjusting the valves. It needs to be cleaned and rejetted anyway, I'm going to order a billet choke plate tomorrow when I order jets. I'm not sure If I'm a fan of the Supertrapp or not. It isn't obnoxiously loud, but it is loud and at the same time it's kinda cool because it's so old.

People buying these RZR 1000 crews are paying more for their machine than I pay for my house/per month (I don't live in a shack either)... and they're usually broken or need major repairs within the first six months.

I'm actually surprised he didn't break his neck...

When he finished the roll you could see his head snap back and forth pretty good. They jacked that thing up real good.

The snorkel was already yanked by the PO. I picked up a new Mikuni 41mm Flatslide carb from XR's only for $209 last week, at that price I decided not to dick with the old one since I needed new throttle cables anyway. If I can get all that squared away before Saturday then we're going out this weekend. It's supposed to be 50.

That's a good sign...means the PO actually did some research.

The PO was an older guy, he knew his shit. That's the main reason I bought that bike over any other. He did ride the shit out of it but also took care of it.

I ordered a new carb for it on the 28th of November from XR's only. On the 18th the cat on the phone said he'd "get it out this week". Still no carb.
