I found them used on eBay.  I had the hardest time finding a set, including having to send a set back to that other OEM Cycle (posers).  I snatched these up as soon as I saw them.  I didn't realize how cool they were until I got them on the bike.  I was just so relieved to have a set.   grin

Yesterday I got the silencer mount done.  There is a comical amount of room for a two stroke exhaust on a four stroke.  I actually had to space the mount out from the frame to center it in the space.

I also got the suspension in today.  The front forks are the KX450F air forks with Dal Saggio Sphere inserts and coil springs.  Brian at N2Dirt Suspension has had really good luck with them, and calls them the most plush stuff you can get.  The second picture is after I got them.

I was able to get them installed and it finally looks like a motorcycle.  I have a few more items to button up, and I still need to fix the kickstarter, but I'm getting closer.

I got a lot of stuff buttoned up this weekend.  All I lack at this point is to finish weld and reinforce the head stay, and fix a couple of nagging problems and I should be able to ride it.  It was nice to finally get to sit on the bike and see what it felt like.  I can't wait to ride it!

The ergonomics are really different from the 03-07 bikes; it's really narrow through the midsection. It should be a really interesting experience after so many years on the other bikes.

I知 at my parents house in SE Oklahoma for a meeting. My little 110v welder won稚 weld the material I made my head stay from very well. My dad has a 220v MIG I知 going to borrow. I知 hoping to get the head stay welded up Tuesday. I thought that was all I lacked, but I discovered the right side radiator transfer hose is hitting the tank and causing the radiator to stick out way too far forward. I知 going to send it back and have the radiator guy flip the tank and move the fitting out to the edge. I think that will get me enough room so I can move the radiator back where it doesn稚 block the triple clamp.  Two steps forward, and one back.  grin

 How much does it weight? What are the front and rear wheel percentages?
