Stuff in my area stays nice...I live in a fairly arid state with decomposed granite which drains away puddles fairly fast. Not a lot of rain, mud, silt.....Makes it really nice and for the most part excellent trail conditions.

The aluminum parts are only polished not chromed....LOL

Badass do you have access to a cnc mill? If I email you a stl. would you mill out a rear resi bracket for me? How much?


You guys should check your steering stops periodically when I tore mine down I found cracks in the welds on both sides so I had them welded. I then ground the welds down and painted the area. Turned out pretty good however, the ColorRite paint that Yamaha recommended to me didn't match so you would be better off going to a body shop and have them mix up some for you.





Disregard the two little micro paint nicks...LOL....

Those steering stops always crack. On every bike I've owned.
The precision stabilizer will fix that

Still waiting on the stem and link......For those who have Walsh a arms what type of bolt did you use on your lower shock mount and type of nut? What did you do for safety.....Walsh's nut is non locking.....Note: if you ever buy Streamline Brake lines always buy the oem length...NEVER buy the +1 even if you have a MX setup because they are way too long....The oem length is almost perfect for a +1 setup! The Precision stabilizer is a pain to mount because you have to pull your stem to mount the front bracket under the frame. It gets tight in there with the Walsh caster bracket, brake T, and stabilizer......

Yeah the precision is a pain to mount, especially to tighten the clamp. I used the oem bolt and nut to mount the lower shock I believe. Unless walsh sends you a nut to use but I cant remember. Either way I installed my front end a couple months ago and just used blue Loctite on every nut. Havent had to tighten anything yet.
I was actually going to order a walsh stem since I bent my houser one but I called Nate on Friday and he told me he didn't have any +1 stems in stock that he "plans" on making some this week. Im just going to order another houser stem today since they are in stock rather not wait for walsh on that lol

Walsh sent me two flanged standard nuts.

My lower shock bolts barely had enough length to go through the nuts without washers so I'm going to get bolts that are 15mm to 20mm longer.

I'm trying to figure out something for safety.... Safety wire, cotter pin, 2nd nut, etc...


Maybe a washer and a 15-20mm long threaded hex would offer more thread contact? Of course loctite would be used...I know star washers grip like crazy however, they tear up anything they come into contact....lol..

Ideas?

When the Frap ball joints wear out i'm going to use OEM ball joints with castle nuts and cotter pins for a little peace of mind. I'm thinking of changing out the lower a arm dust shields for the OEM ones which would add to the polished look....
