the box is a catch can for fluids that may leak from the carb or radiator - required for most SM tracks

yeah, those pics are pre-mud. I rode it in the sand last weekend and washed it again and there's still mud from FVOR stuck in behind the skid plate and stuck to the fenders.

Below 1000 ft. Elevation. I think Dupage Airport is at around 700-800 ft if I remember right.

Make it up to RA on July 5th, I'm sure we can find a bike for you to do a couple of laps on. Bring your leathers.

i just want it to perform better and go faster.

the big thing with the JD kit is the needles - and it probably comes with some bigger main jets as well. not sure what TT offers, maybe they throw in some extra jets?

have you done the 3x3 airbox mod yet? that and the exhaust will help, but it will still feel pretty weak. bottom line is the stock carb is crap. even after jetting properly the throttle response sucks.

I would buy the FCR carb before the pipe - or if it's possible get both.

if you want to keep the stock carb, I still have a stock carb and a ton of jets and needles from DynoJet. I can hook you up with some jets/needles on the cheap if you don't want to spend $80 on a JD kit.
