08 Build Thread!

Well guys the 08 is starting to get its treatment here in my garage. This build wasn't supposed to get started until next winter but because of my screw while doing the cam mod I let the clip get under the cap wrong and made a grove into it. So the tear down has began!
- Dasa Port and Polish
- Wiseco 14:1
- Velocity Intake (can't afford FCI ATM)
- YZ450f Cams or Hot Cam 3 for Low end
- Used Slip on to Save some Temp Cash
- Holeshot MXR6 20's Up front 18's Out Back
- 12T Front Sprocket
- Carb Bore
- Lowering Kit

That should Cover this year gonna do a lot of mods to support a BB Stroker next year.

They only picture I got they day I brought it home before tear down! Little man loves it.

Little man helping with tear down!

Torn apart


Latest updates done so far
- Lowering Kit is on
- Front holeshots are here and on now
- 12T is on
- Head is shipped to dasa today!

Yes sir, we lower them in the races I run. This bike will be strictly a race bike unless we go to little Sahara and I will take it off and go to stock ride height.

The races are actually rodeos, they involve thing like a 3 barrel horse races.

Got my new exhaust and intake in, really like the finish on the big gun

Velocity seems solid built, not much to complain with a simple piece of aluminum tube though

In Missouri, if your from that area I could better explain.

Edit: I see you are from Missouri, I used to go to the Roby, Lebanon, and Long Lane rodeos. I haven't had a bike for 3 years now though.

My kids loved doing them when they were younger, still do a few fairs, but that's all they have time for anymore. Good luck with them this year, build looks great. also, let us know how Dasa's port work turns out, there's not much info about them on this site.

I will for sure let you know, I'm getting a little fed up with they're customer service right now though. It's been there I believe on its 4th week which is completely fine. But I usually call and check on Friday's if they have done anything. Talked to the guys in the shop and they said 2 weeks it would be done. Got ahold of the receptionist and she said 3 weeks at the earliest. Got ahold of them last Thursday and the guys in the shop said it should be shipped in two days, so I called them yesterday and the receptionist said it hadn't even been worked on yet, she was supposed to call me back and never did. I will be calling them Monday to straighten this out.
