My last frame cost me 225 to have it stripped and coated in Kiwi Green.
How much is your guy asking?
He was over $300, but I guess once I ship it to a cheaper place and back here it will cost me more than $300 anyway.

I didn't realize that you had installed the EFM.  Looks like you're happy with it.  You did have to add a spacer in the clutch cover?  I want to order one. Any thing else I should know first?

I love it.  It makes the clutch pull super light (if you need to use the clutch at all), and I think it's a must for riding in the trees or tight technical trails.  I did have to add a spacer, but you can skip that if you just leave an extra 1/2" in your cover when you convert it to a two piece.  I bought an already converted cover from Sandblaster before I decided to go with the EFM, and had my buddy make a spacer, but Sandblaster also sells just the rings.  The guy at EFM is really nice, and got my clutch done really quickly.  It's a little pricey, but unlike a Rekluse you don't have to eventually replace it.  You just replace the clutch pack and your good.

All in all, I would say it's probably tied for my favorite modification with the suspension.

Ouch, I thought everything in the USA was cheaper than the UK other than PPV boxing, I have been quoted 95 GBP for a 250 frame to be done in Kiwi green which is around $122 USD and the reviews for them are all good!!

Man, that is cheap! I wish I could find someone that cheap here.

Look what I got from the UPS man on Friday.

Larry got my compression release added to the spare head I bought from Sandblaster.  His work is as good as advertised; this dude looks factory.





Unfortunately it looks like I won't be able to get this dude on for a while.  I just had back surgery, and can't lift any weight or ride a dirt bike for 12 weeks.  Getting old sucks a lot.  Oh well, I also can't go to work for a while either.  It's not all bad.   grin
