That's a pretty good price on that bike btw. Hopefully it stays in good shape for a few seasons without needing any significant rebuilds. Let us know where you get your tires, catch bottles, and other doodads for tech. I'm sure there are a few others interested in finding a good source for those parts.

catch bottles are usually old pill bottles or the little 5hr engery shot bottles.. you can also use a rc gas tank from a hobby shop, any thing that will hold liquid and vent

if you got any questions for the klx, let me know I should be able to answer them or get the answer for ya

catch bottles run from pill bottles to hair dye bottles to small gatorade bottles, Motorcycles Unlimited made mine up for me while they safety wired it for me...tires come from several of our sponsors on here....if you run 17's and like dunlop GP slicks, see whoop...if you prefer other brands see Motorcycles Unlimited ... tire prices are pretty good locally...any little doodads you might need, ask around the pits at the races, it is pretty common to see one or two of the guys with things for sale, anything from spare parts to complete bikes...

How would you vent a pill bottle/gatorade bottle? Also whats the deal with taping the foot peg springs, is that in case you break it during a crash so you dont lose the springs on the track?

vent it by poking a hole on the top when you have it wire tied to the bike...if you do not vent it, it sometimes causes idle and starting issues....
taping the folding pegs makes no sense to me either and no one has ever given me an explanation that makes sense... but two seconds with electrial tape and you pass tech, so i just do it.

What I know about the tape is so you dount gouge the track with your foot pegs when you go down.

i have heard that, i have never figured out how that is supposed to work...
keeping the pegs from folding (which the tape will not do) is supposed to keep them from gouging the surface of the pavement?

They said peg slider are prefered but you can tape them instead. The peg will fold but the part on the frame hits and is supposed to gouge it.
I need to race. I am going crazy doing nothing here.

I'm gonna run these 16"'s for now, but I may get back to you. You have a rear hub for a stock XR100 sitting around though?

Originally I was gonna trade my rear wheel for Jasons, but instead he just needs my original hub so he can re-lace it, but I would like to keep my dirt wheels so I can go back and forth. So if I can find a rear hub quick, if not I will just pick up another wheel later.
