    All of my updates are finished, minus the tuning from commonwealth. My rear shock feels great from the few short tame rides I've been on. Changing the gearing I can feel the mid range a little better, I like it!

    So apparently in my last post I lied. I will be adding secondary air intake block offs. Got them ordered from RevZilla so hopefully the tear down and install will take place on one of these 40+ degree weather days that we have coming up! And then off to commonwealth to get it tuned! While I do enjoy making mods, I do dislike the tedious ones, if I'm lucky I'll be able to get this one done in about an hour but knowing my luck it'll take 2.

    Why is it so hard to upload photos on here....

    So I couldn't make my BST's work from my 2012 r1 without a bunch of work, so I picked up some new ones for the new bike! Cant wait to get them on...
    Damn! Keep me in mind if you ever want to get rid of them.

    Other KX250f is getting a thorough carb clean, new fork seals, valve adjusment, and a shiny new for sale sign.
    Retro, what shock are you going with for the Gixxus? I recently got a Nitron R2, looking forward to checking that out.

    After a lot of math and 3d printing, and then some more math... I was able to adapt a stock 2015 Yamaha R1 shock to the Gixxus. I made new linkage plates to account for the shorter shock and altered spring rate. The R1 shock has a ride height adjustment which will allow for fine tuning once I know how the front end responds. In order to make the shock fit, I made my own 3/16" aluminum battery tray with a Shorai LFX14-somethingorother and moved around the fuse box, tip over relay, and starter relay.

    The true test will come once the weather breaks. On the lift, I've managed to keep correct wheel travel for the bike, raised the rear ride height, and accounted for the stock R1 spring. Shock valving feels and looks right; but I've been fooled before.

    That is about 93 million miles from what I was expecting and the coolest reply I have read in a while!

    Any images of the work in progress? Including the math...
