Good info in that article. I am already on my way, and can't wait to get the rest of the parts in.

Thanks James. Still waiting on a rear rim (that is the stocker) and springs front and rear. Then waiting for TMGP to start up again!

Thanks Cliff. It is a vee rubber front tire on the stock rim. I have a 2.5 rim coming and a tt92 for out back. I will probably need some pointers or words of wisdom when it comes time to safety wire. It is the stock kx65 front end with a 2.15 rim.

Thanks James. I am sure I will have a lot of questions for you guys when I get ready to safety wire!

Cliff, it is a kx65 not a 60, so it is all stock (well, almost all of it).

I have changed my mind so much on what to run. I did have a 110 at one point not too long ago, but traded it for the 65.
