so far l have done the brakes , fluild change and cleaned the K and N air element , l changed the rear wheel bearings also , it came with a Big Gun exhaust system to head so the head pipe is larger l beleive from stock , l do not have the orginal exhaust but from pictures l see their larger diameter . it came with a digtal speedo also , l will replace the rear tire this coming spring as well

Great info on this site to take care of this monster.

Yo Mike, welcome here and first tip: get rid of that K&N filter, they're shite things for offroad as they pass fine dust. Foam is what you want.

Big Gun exhaust look great on dyno for max HP but suck for overall riding.

Nice bike!Santa

std filter vs k&n

i used to live 100yds from a wide open beach, i rode my xr500 nearly everyday on it and gravel roads, it had the entire std airbox and foam filter assem, when i was overhauling it, the top of the piston[ i.e. above top ring area] was as rough as sandpaper, this kinda dispells the theory that the std filter keeps out fine particles, ill stick to my properly serviced k&n filters

air makes power as a engine is just a air pump , long life of a engine needs clean air . As we here are dirt bike riders it hard to make ever aspect perfect but we can together . Information from us all makes the best solutions
