    still setting mine up to my own personal preference since i bought it second hand the other day, cleaned the plug, tuned the carb and set the idle replaced the air filter foam and set the end points on the servos.
    going to adjust the brakes tomorrow and fit the the parts that i have ordered which arrive tomorrow too
    need something to keep me occupied due to being housebound with a broken tibia and fibula

    Just stripped my basher one down and sending the parts of to be re anodised again.
    Like to change the colour every few years, plus a chance to install new upgrades

    Here you go buddy http://www.baja-forum.co.uk/showthre...al-rod-end-mod

    I would highly recommend using limiting cables when running metal ball ends

    motorbike crash. some clever bloke decided to stop on a narrow one way section of road where the road forks off and didnt put his hazards on, there is no reason to stop on this section of road so when i saw the tail lights in the dark i thought nothing of it but all of a sudden he was infront of me and i didnt have time to stop so tried to squeeze up the side. clipped his mirror which knocked me off balance causing me to hit the kerb, completely lose control and threw me into a signpost which turned out to be a tad stronger than my leg 6 screws, a metal plate and 25 stitches later i was on the road to recovery

    im sick of hearing stories like this. iv been a biker all my days and I have had a few mates killed and badly injured by so called motorists. that bas.ard should be made to pay you compo and pay for the bike as well. anyone who kills a biker through negligence should be done for manslaughter and jailed. im fed up hearing the excuse .. I didn't see him .. guy pulled out in front of me years ago and I nearly cut his car in half and when I went to see him after hospital he said he had no insurance he got a slap on the wrist and a fine. it sickens me....
