ok heres what im thinking later this week i should be getting my new coil and if the guy on ebay will accept a money order i will get a fmf exhaust so i was thinking of getting a rev box and possibly rejetting the carb but i wasnt sure if i should do all that with a stock coil and motor is it a good idea or bad?

Stock coil is absolutely fine. Just to explain it a bit better, jetting is not an upgrade. Anytime you make ANY changes to your air flow by changing exhaust or intake you must rejet. As you are allowing more air to flow into the carb you need to add more fuel to keep your air/fuel ratio constant and correct.

When you add that exhaust, remove your airbox lid too. Ride with it off.

Agree^^^^^ a new CDI performance box will increase youe redline (rev limit) by 1000 RPMs roughly and will alter your ingnition timing a bit too creating a broader power band through the gears.

Wake up Moose.
oh I'm awake buddy just have alot on the brain right now... My oldest son go into a fight sunday and he told us he was going to go eat with some friends they didn't go eat the went to this boy's house in his yard and he started fighting with him. to top it off one of my sons friend was videotaping it on his IPOD Well the real kick in the Jimmies was the other boys father stood right there and watched it and was rooting his son on, I would in no way let much less cheere on something like that in my yard I'm still ticked off about it and I still haven't decided if I'm going to pay dad a visit. My wife is fourious! so sorry about the info earlier i haven't even been up here much because all of this has been going on.

Man I dont know what I would do in a case like that. I would be pissed off also. Did your son start the fight or the other guy? Did your son win?

It was alittle of both startng it the other boy threw the first punch, I think I would call it a draw, they both got in some good shots, but I could care less who won the point is the other father couldn't man-up and tell everyone to leave it's plain and simple bulls**t! I need to sleep on this for a few days before i go ripping someones head off their shoulders. If nothing more comes of this situation then so be it but if they think they need round 2 then I will intervene as a real parent should.

Kids are kids, they will fight. In no way shape or form should an adult encourage the fighting...

When i was a kid, I bet I fought everyone of my friends. A parent never cheered us on, they always broke it up.

Wow, that is insane! And if the other boy got seriously hurt they would be taking your son to court. That guy is no parent and needs to be slapped upside his head!!

It would be different if it was some kids wrestling and horsing around but this doesn't sound like that at all.

I couldn't agree more. And it took alot for me not to take a ride over there and bit*h slap him, but two wrong don't make a right and they would get me for tresspassing so we have decided to let it blow over on its own just for the fact that kids will fight. We've all been there.
