New Maggot Taxi rounder upper. Can't really argue with a 3800 change over on the CTX200. Taller, lighter, better bike that can poke about behind a mob of sheep but I can mod to cope a bit better with my style of riding so it doesn't -

a) Kill me
b) I kill it (to badly)

Lots of rocks here, so the higher skinnier bike will be a bit better. I was going for the DRZ250, but they are just a little to much to justify to the owners for a farm deadly treadly.

Nice. I'm sure you could get an AG rear rack to fit with a few mods so the dogs will be happy.

Yeah, there is a little alloy one from the US that will do. I need to get rid of my bread crate so I don't feel the need to take 4 dogs everywhere, they are getting lazy.

Well, I got her on Tuesday arvo, and I am bloody impressed with the little rocket. Might have to do a few enduro cross races on it, so light, you can just throw i about.

I enjoy riding The wifes 230. Its sooooooo much lighter than the XR4.. lol

Rejetted and all restrictions removed make them go ok.

Even some more preload and heavier and higher fork oil makes a difference. The wife loves it and get up most stuff

Your never going to want to put it over motocross jumps

Xr600 shock fits straight in, the front end can be changed but you need a spacer for the headstem as it is shorter than CR/XR. if you pull out the Airbox snorkel you will need to go up on the main jet, don't worry about the needle as its a waste of $30, just adjust the one in it if you need to.

Luv em, bloody great bike to muck around on with heaps of grunt, I want to build a special when I get some time.

Yeah, I have done the air box Red, and I need to get a jet, I don't have the right one in my kit.

I have just added 50mm preload and heavier fork oil to the forks, and it has made a heap of difference. Shock will be next.

I was reading a book today that had some great racks. All mounted on the front though

The wifes is running standard needle with clip in bottom position. Now running a 115 mainjet 102 is standard.

Read that the 120 was good for standard needle but made the bike feel fat in the upper revs. It revs freely all the way now. Nice and smooth

One thing I hate though is the rear drum. It needs to be adjusted after every ride.. Or maybe coise drags the brakes. I am yet to determin... lol
