heres the start of my trail/light mx build. my current mods are in my sig

before


after


its dirty as shit. im waiting for my a-arms to come from lonestar, theyve been backordered. so from here im really not sure which direction to head. im not trying to build the greatest bike in the world but i want it to perform well. i think next on the list will be some 22" rear tires and 23" fronts for the woods, 20" rears and 21" fronts for the track, flexx bars or fourplay bars, rear grab bar and bumper of some sort and way down the road motor work. nothing crazy, i think 60-65 hp would be plenty. anyone have any advice on anything i should invest in? advice on any of the stuff ive mentioned?

Yeah its adjustable. It took me about 1.5-2 hours. If your mechanically inclined and are able to follow written directions it would probably take 45 min :lol:

do you have a wrench big enough to fit the 70mm axle nut on the g force? i thought i did and was wrong. ended up having to order the g force wrench from rmatv which was $7 to ship 2 wrenches. if i woulda just went ahead and ordered them with the axle i coulda saved 7 bucks, damnit. kenneth from kbmotorsports said my a-arms were backordered so i wonder how long it will take lonestar to make them and ship them out. anyone know?

To make sure it ain't a few bricks of dope in the box or terroristic shit. Remember around holidays all the shit they found on planes from yemin.

Yeah everything I get from ups has been opened but FedEx not weird I just assume that's what's going on. I had TSA take a pink denso injector outta my luggage at Ontario California airport. I had just grabbed it from DL the day before.

It was probably opened and re taped shut. Plus the guys at every spot it stops don't handle packages correctly for 7.50 an hr they just toss around. Every package don't get searched or we'd never get our stuff but it seems everything I ordered been thru lol.
