Thank you for uploading the photos for me. It may have just been my computer being a complete goofball, but for some reason even when I uploaded the photos after I rotated them, they were still upside down.
As for the dirt bike, thanks! I've worked pretty hard to make it look the way it does. Runs great too. I've got VForce Reeds, a power now valve, FMF Fatty and now (thanks to you!) an FMF Shorty and it sounds and runs great. Definitely the best bike I've ever owned. Got lots of power, yet it can be very gentle thanks to the R&D of Honda during the last few years of their two stroke program. Lots of people have bombed the CR250 '02-'07 but I feel like Honda achieved what they wanted in their two stroke, which seems to me like they wanted to make it more like their CRF450R. They went from a hard hitting motor to this RC Exhaust Valved engine, and I think it works great for my application. It does lack in the bottom range but the Power Now valve that I got really helps keep the engine from stalling and it helps produce more low end power. I kinda feel like Honda tried to shift the power to more of the top end in an effort to make it more like a four-stroke, something with a smoother power curve, therefore aiding in traction and easy of riding. But, thats not what two stroke fans seemed to want back then. They wanted something hard hitting and what seems like "hard to ride". They basically wanted a two-stroke. Thats just my opinion and I could go on and on. But when the day comes to an end, all I know is I just wanna ride!!!!

Hey jawman,
I agree, I want to ride and. I want to ride what I want to ride :D
I like 500cc 2 stroke power.
Not for the explosive hit or eye sucking top end speed, I like pulling the front wheel off the ground in 3rd gear and not being on the pipe.
The other stuff is good too :D

Surprisingly, this bike will do that. I think every gear except fifth, you can just give it gas right off the bottom and BAM, nose high. My dad was really impressed when I first got it, and he rides a '06 KTM 250 XC-W (seen in one of my photos). It doesn't have a hit, but it sure does have plenty of power.
