The cable wont work any better. Lol. I would suggest getting a better caliper for the re disc conversion. What conversion do you have on thw front?

SuperATV kits back and front --------- today them clips to lock the ice chest down came in , chained down the ice chest with the turn buckles and it is solid , I think you could pick the bike upside with a crane and shake it violently and it wouldn't come off the bike , they never really fit , but they worked , I am going to find some kind of use from the extra bit of bracket sticking out the side , maybe a machette holder like the one in the pic

Another thing that came in yesterday was a rear view mirror and mounting bracket , they are like $10 for the mirror and brackets ( come 2 in a pack ) , I have them on all my bikes , they do shake around a bit , but you can see if the person is behind you with out turning around , saves your neck , they work really good at night when all you need to know is that the lights are behind you

Not the best pic :

I like your double drink holders , you are ready to party ! So one snorkel is for you vents and the other for the engine ? ---

the mustard yellow color is rare around here , I bought a trailer load of 450 part bikes a while back , there was a 450 frame with yellow plastic I couldn't fit on the trailer , told the guy I was going to come back and get it , never did as he is 80 miles away , I have had 8 450's so far in all different conditions but never a yellow one , did come close once ----

you right your bars look naked LOL and I am over killed 3x over , my buddy Retro says it is my office ----- I am still going to have to add 2 toggles some where , one for the sound system and one for the rear LED lights

Lol. I think my 450 came from your way or Mississippi. I bought it off my friend that lives in northwest Florida and said at one time someone in the soggy bottom boys club owned it.


Yup the left snorkel is from the air box and the right is a dumby for the vent lines.

I have heard of the Soggy Bottom Club , there is a music group uses that name and I have watched videos of Soggy Bottom Boys in the mud --------

Wow, if you watch some of their videos you might see that yellow 450 in action !!!!

That what my friend said the guy told him that he got the bike from. Hoping to get down that way this easter to ride. Not many places up here to ride. I might actually start mine up this weekend. I havent been on it in months.
