Honestly, I have had no major problems as I posted before. I am pretty handy with the tools, and I was able to teach my son at the age of 7 how to work on/build his own rig with little investment. He has been able to ride for the last 5 years because of no major investments in something that he would have out grown in that amount of time.

It worked for us. That is all.
I have documented proof, just look at the earlier posts and his build thread. Sorry if you don't believe me. I can't help that.

Oh yeah. I got a full track in my back yard with a few jumps most people would be reluctant to hit on a full size bike. Of course not on a stock 110. Just some suspension upgrades like longer dampening rods and stiffer rear spring. There way to much fun to beat on

Resale is also much higher for these reasons.

To me my toys are just as important to get back going. I don't get to take my toys out as much as I want so when I pull a dirtbike out a couple days before a trip up north if something isn't right I want that part right away or my trip is fukced.

For the record when I get home from up north I look everything over while the bike gets washed before it's put away.
