Taking advantage of the downtime.

- Lubed throttle/clutch/de-comp cables
- New wheel bearings
- New bearing seals
- New wheel spacers
- New Maxxis Desert IT tires to follow....



You always need a good support system!

How many miles were on your bearings? Thats a good looking bike. Just for curiosities sake what kind of coating did you use on your shop floor? I just built my shop in October and have been thinking of putting a trick floor coat on.

Not sure of the overall mileage on the bike, we've had it for the last 600 miles. I'm pretty sure it's the factory bearings in there. I think they we still okay, but I changed em' out anyways.

Shop floor is a 2 coat epoxy paint with a vinyl chip coating and a clear coat over the top.

Very durable, cleans up really nice. thumb

If it is your riding future you are pondering, there's no reason it can' t look like this 25 years from now.
