I thought it would be good to start a thread on what things people have done to their bikes to fix problems, make life easier or just something you are proud of.
Share what you have done with the rest of us.
Here's some things I have done to mine.

Removed the plastic cover from inside the disc. I had problems with rocks getting caught behind it & it also made it hard to fully wash the crud out without removing the wheel.



A couple of holes in the battery box stops mud collecting in there.



A couple of holes & cable ties hold the dash under the flexx bars well.

Removed the crank case breather from the carb & put a filter on the end of it.



Welded a ariel mount onto the OEM grab bar.



Welded a couple of tabs to the OEM grab bar & made a custom plate. It also takes my rego plate for the dunes.

Honda 450R throttle.



A couple of thin bits of stainless glued to the tank where the seat rubs.



A small cut out in the plastic makes getting a socket on easy.

Really well thanks Jay. No more melted boots!
I did change the mounting. I welded double nuts to the pipe & just bolted straight to them.

Very good idea. I wish I could offer that service to people, but it would be took much to get everyones pipes and do that.

Great stuff though man,
Jay

Graveless - the heatshield is supplied by Jay (TrEw). Just drop him a PM.

Stryker 1513 - The K&N kit part number is KT-5201.
They are designed for the bikes, so I drilled & bolted the mounting plate to the KTM intake lid. A bit of MS1 under the mounting plate to seal it when I bolted it together & it works perfectly.

i dont trust K&N filters personally, they let too much stuff into your carb, foam filters do it for me.

i dont have pics but the walsh stem doesnt have the o-rings that the stock ones do, so we put a fork seal on top and below it and it works mint.


also we made a custom key bracket that removes the lights on the SX to fit the Flexx bars

This is how I fixed my exhaust from popping on de-cel:
I seperated the header from the head flange and cleaned them thoroughly with paint thinner then I mixed the J B Weld and applied the epoxy to the header flange evenly all the way around it and then installed the header back on the quad and then put a rag down to catch what dripped off from the header and flange. This was the only way I felt confident that it would get into all of the areas where the exhaust gasses were leaking from. I then let it set for over 24 hrs before I started it up. When I did start it up, it smoked like a cigar from the flange for a while then went away. It is night and day different from what it was before

Did a mates akropovic recently. Just cut 4mm off the header pipes where they go onto the head flange.
No leaks so far.

Hated how far the throttle stuck out. So took it off and shaved bump stop till smooth. This let me turn it in some so my hand wasn't so open to reach with my thumb. course it can now spin all the way around if loose. but some lock tight fixed the problem. big difference at my second race. first post. thanks for great site
