ok, so i don't have any family. -- (3 people is it)
so i thought, what the heck, i'll buy my own xmas gift this year!

last night i finally purchased my fender eliminator kit from newspeed3 - the MotoFab kit! and some small bolt on signals from bike night.
the hardest part now is waiting for them to get here!!

i know one of you has installed the lights, and was wondering how hard it was to do??
other than that, i just had to share the excitement of my bike getting a new butt!

weeeee.

i think you could only help your bike with a new performance exhaust. - especially in colorado! the air cleaner and exhaust are musts up there. did to all of my bikes and they sang, even at 12,000 feet. opening up the breathing is key.

watch that gravel out there man.

Look at that! You guys are right down the street from each other. lol

Small World.

Zoo, the lights are easy. Follow the great instructions that come with the MotoFab Kit.

You'll need to drop the undertail and just cut off your stock blinkers (leaving as much extra wiring as possible) and wire them up. Same thing with the license plate light.

Make sure you got your pos/neg right before soldering them in, if that's what you choose to do.

thanks gracie. i get weird about electronics as i failed that class in HS being a punk ass...

hey 24gt,

where are you riding your crf at?
there is a great jeep road just before you get to brekenridge - i can't remember the name, but it takes you to the top of the mountain there. we used to call it montezuma's run.
it's super fun! and fun trying to keep your bike under your ass at the last hill climb that's made up of shale. totally crazy. there's like a golf course sign at the entrance of the road off the main highway leading into brek'.
go check it out sometime. -- you can drop down the other side and ride through this weird hippy commune. takes you right back to "deliverance".

cheers,
-b

Haven't rode the CRF for 6 months now. I found a pond and thought hey i can ride through that. Now for most people common sense would have kicked in but no i have to try any way. So I get a good run and lift the front end up and all was great in the world till i hit the middle of pond and hit super stop you in your tracks mud. so the front end came down and the bike stopped as where i kept going for another 10 feet. :-D So that where dumb azz idea numer 2 comes in. I'll just try to kick it even though it was submerged in water for 15 mins. (Thats how long it took to get out) so i did $2200 worth of damage in 20 mins. So i have my crf in boxs right now until i can get her fixed. But thanks when i get her up again I would love to check that place out.
nice. i've always been kind of spooked running through spring run-off rivers out there.
sorry about the piston chamber. when your up and running ping me and i bet i could show you where that ride is via google earth.

BTW, i used to take my bike to "performance cycle" on broadway.
check them out if you have time and convenience.
the owner is a great guy.

one last:

i can't believe performance cycles ditched out on service! did they open the back part of that building up for merchandise? or just using it for inventory? that's crazy.

although they DID screw up on a complete over-haul on my xr600.
i had them re-do the entire motor - everything! when i got it back i rode it 3 times and it started smoking... i investigated and found that they forgot to tighten the bolts that hold the carb/gasket to the head. so dirt was flying in there when i was riding.
i was one p!ssed guy. that's when i traded up for my cr5. but would kill to have my xr600 back.
