It's amazing that a bike that changed so little since 1989 is still so revered and in some cases so relevant.
Hail to the king :D

Yeah it was close.
He kept telling me how fast his quad was so I let him go first.
I can't turn quite as fast as he could on his quad on the side of the hill.
I probably could if I practiced doing it a bit.
Then coming down you could see where I hit third gear........
I almost took us both out :o
Make for good viewing.
I had to burn those chonies :D

Time for a little maintenance...
I pulled the seat off discovered that I still have a K&N in there.
In all honesty I hate they way they fit, I hate the reduced area for the dirt to stick to and I never feel as though I'm getting it on there right.

So, out it comes and in goes a new one....
Good thing I had the original cage in my private reserve junk pile...
But, before I put in the cage and filter, in goes a PC Racing Pro-Seal Air filter gasket.
I just love the way these things work, clean the mating surface with some acetone and stick it on.

Next, put the stock cage on and the No Toil dual stage air filter.
They even give you some plastic gloves so you don't get you hands sticky :-)

No grease needed and it fits superbly.
I gotta say I like this combo ...
