I like the other white one a bit better. Hopefully I can find a used black one somewheres sometime soon.

They've been talking about that big bore kit on Supermoto junkie for a little while. Looks pretty sweet and a nice alternative to that turbo kit!

Hey, they're one of the few that's paying contingency this year. Brembo stock components as well, I'd take one.

Jason, I just took a DRZ 400SM and did the Yosh conversion on it. Everything but the motor. I need to get it to you when the weather turns so you can do a back to back!

Did you modify the throttle so you can actually open it up all the way?
