Re: Aero exhaust

the difference will be louder and slight loss or gain in performance, key word slight and gain only if you're unplugging the right area.

unlikely to be beneficial unless you just want more sound

Re: 01 front suspension

Greetings: Are the forks bent? Google "String Alignment" or see here. Are the steering head bearings gritty or squared? Raise the front wheel, grab the axle by both ends and check for front-to-back movement. You may just need to repack them and adjust the tension per manual specifications. Better-t...

Re: What ever happened to "Bear"?

i'm with motormike wholeheartedly. his constant flagrant egotism about all things as the 2stroke supremo were most annoying.

if he's gone, good riddance. :hi:

Re: Best way to clean an Elite?

^all great suggestions.

tip: for the real super grimey stuff on engine, spray with some brake cleaner, watch it melt away and wash with soap & water or spray with hose soon after. just don't let it sit too long as it can eat thru paint, but a quick douse and hose down does the trick :thumbwink:
