Thanks Staton for letting me try yours and sending me the e-mail on Scotts's. Scott thanks for giving me all the info on the new bike. Now I have to wait till the season starts. Thanks again guys for the experience.

let me know if you have any questions about it. I'd be happy to help if I can.

and staton has a standing offer to anyone with a motard to help them kick start it (on the first kick or it's free!), so be sure to take advantage of that...

see you out at GSS!

Don't know if they are or not, but GOE had a 250 they rigged up with DNA wheels for the mini races and they had told me they were dirt cheap. Something like $500 their cost for a set laced.

Can't edit post. I didn't realize that GOE is no longer a sponsor, so you might check with some of the other sponsors and see what they can do for you.

FWIW, the DNA wheels I have seen looked like Chinesium stuff. I don't know who makes them or where (I hope they aren't made in the USA from the quality perspective), but I wouldn't use them. I guess it goes back to you get what you pay for.

Disclaimer, I haven't used them and I am not aware of failures, just my gut from when I checked out a bike that had them.

Thanks for fielding the questions Staton, I'm still trying to remember everything Scott told me about the bike. I can't wait to get it out on the track.

keep it, then.

the 625 is the best lc4, imho. you keep the old school frame along with the kickstarter and chain on the "correct" sides of the motor, but you also get the hi-flow head, updated swingarm and nicer bodywork.

y'all know I'm going to end up buying another tard at some point to replace the one I sold to scoutguy. (my wife is still in denial, though. ) the only questions are when and what.
