Impressive throttle response. Similar to my old 125 2 -stroke super x bike
Nice work.

Tonight I'm going to
Make a shifter linkage and solid shock replacements to drive it on the trailer, bringing it to elite tomorrow to brace the cage more, then hopefully the coilovers show up in time for April 7. I don't think it will be real impressive with solid front suspension lol.

Drove it. 1/4 throttle at 20 on gravel and your sliding sideways. Doesn't sound impressive but the mutt couldn't do that wide open with 31s, bruiser never even down shifted. I weighed it at 4020 with me in it so around 3800-3820, I had a big supper lol. Then I drove it on the trailer. So far no issues, looks like another 20lbs of wire melted into the tc clock fixed that so far. Get it to elite tomorrow and wait for shocks.

I drove it a couple blocks to my scale, then back to the trailer. Really wasn't bad with low air 36s going slow.
