She is Race Ready Now - Thx Equalz

My man came through once again - Your patience and attention to detail is unparreled Bro and I do appreciate all your help with all my bikes over the years

Wanted to get this one as close to stock looking with a little race flair - Got her as a blank slate and had the decals made from a cat over at SMJ - The fit and finish is spot on and they sized right up perfectly

Before Pic:


Stock Factory Pic:


Finished Product:

The Stock pic is, yes - I sent that pic to my guy he got it pretty close - Has some differences but all and all it is close enough for my liking

Nah - Marchies are played - These Excels with the Tubeless Alpina System get my vote - I actually like how it is not all black - I like the silver

You mean his Galespeed Knock offs.............


j/k - Your Yami is done up nicely - Before I went the Alp route, i searched high and low for Marchis and with the Factory Move and Marchie's $$ coming from "Big Bikes" they are pretty much non existent unless you find used - I had (2) Disties searching for them and both said the same thing

Back on it this coming Sunday for a track day then back to racing Sept 8th and the last round in Oct - Shoulder is back to 100% and yesterday was the 6 week mark for the ribs which come with a 6-8 week healing process - I can still feel them move a bit with certain movements but now I am just trying to rebuild the muscles around them that have been dormant for a month and a half due to the brace

I just like the looks of the Marchi's. Never been a fan of the Alp's but everyone is different.

Hope fully you keep it up right next weekend and make it out to the last 2 rounds of NWGP/ Superbikers2

I hear ya man - Some guys are "Mags' guys and others are 'Spoke" guys - I know if Roman had his choice, he would be running Mags too

As for keeping it up, I do not plan on running any dirt sections so I hope I will be okay and hope this bike is not jinxed - The guy i got it from said the OG owner took it to (1) track day, low sided and broke his hand - Sold it the next day - Pack did (2) track days on it but said he was scared to push it

I felt GREAT on the bike on the tarmac - Love the ergos of it and the geometry is spot on as well - I have no plans for dirt with it - My back cannot take the jumps anymore, hence why I got out of MX last season

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.
