Nice lookin' bike there Javio. I don't recall if that's the same blue as my '01, or if it's the '99 that had the different shade of blue. I do like the smoke colored wheels on your 2000 though...Brianne's has the smoke with the red paint and it looks hot!

Thanks Eric. Maybe if Nick gives you some mod tips, we can all get together at the same time. I am almost positive mine needs the carbs cleaned. I have to run it with the choke cracked open to keep it running.
