Can we just agree that F4i's are awesome? My friend used to have one years ago, and it was so fun. I should have bought it from him. # Regrets.

I agree! I honestly don't see myself ever selling this bike. It sucks because they're one of the most popular stunt bikes out there, which means they're getting destroyed all the time. In the future parts availability may become even more of an issue than it is right now.

Already looking at buying my own tig machine so I can recreate my aftermarket subframe which is already unavailable everywhere hahahaha

TIG welding is the greatest thing to ever be invented. I've heard great things about the harbor freight Vulcan TIG welder. It's tough to beat for the money. I bought a Miller waaaay back when cheap TIG welders were not an option. If I was to do it again, I'd probably get an eastwood or vulcan to save myself $2000

Bike is looking GOOD.

Those rotor spacers still make me giggle.

I can't believe I was a month early getting them to you. :lol:

It's crazy the difference that those spacers made. Not only from the rolling resistance but actually riding the bike. Drag on the front end off throttle makes the bike want to stand up instead of turn in. Less drag = easier to turn and you can definitely feel it.

I got bored today so crazy things happened.
