Been down 5 weeks after putting a chainsaw into my knee cap....I finished up my new a-arms since stock was twisted and most bushings sloppy. But I still had time so now to brace and fix cracked frame mounts at top of frame. Going to throw a dual exhaust on while I am in there, finish my 12hole air box mod drop in cams and jet it. Nothing else to do if you can't ride then built and make better. 2hrs didthis with a bad knee and no help. Motor will require a friend. Not sure when I'll ride again as it may take a few more week for full movement.

I broke my left foot in Oct walking the dog. We were clearing avserbice road and the blade skipped off a small tree cutting horizontal caught my jeans and chewed into my knee which already had a scare...I made hamburger. Figured it was the last piece we needed to cut then go ride. Back to building while down. I had my riding boots on and got me just above them. Things happen.

We spent 3hours fixing up cracks, breaks and bends. Thru in a few gussets where these frames like to break too. Everything is at powder coater now. I got a few things back today I started preparing. I was suprized a slip on came with 1 header. I contacted hmf to buy the other off the dual set up so I don't have to built one lol.

12 hole air box mod is done. Tonight I will machine a billet snorkel block off, I never go more then a whole into mud / water puddles on a sport toy. Going to build a fixture for new front header since hmf won't sell my just a front header I can mod. Hope to start reassembling this weekend.
