having a bit of camera trouble, a friend of mine is working on fixing it for me.
i did my oil & filter change, new spark plug, and installed the spacers and the exhaust on saturday. i am very surprised by how loud the exhaust is, but i'm getting used to it.
it did wonders for throttle response, my honda now wants to lift the front tires from a roll in 2nd gear. before i could get it to wheelie in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th by putting my foot on the rear rack and pulling up on the bars, but it would never try to wheelie all on its own using just throttle.
the spacers have made the handling quite a bit nicer, it feels much more stable on hard turns. it nearly eliminated the feeling that it wants to flip over.
i'm not sure which parts contributed to this, but there are several turns on the trail at my house where when it was very wet i could get it to hang the tail out in 3rd gear. now it will do it in 4th on those turns, and go sideways in 3rd nearly everywhere else.
i'm am really loving how much of an improvement these few things have made, can't wait to add some more power.
total mod list is as follows:
kenda bearclaw tires (24-8-12 front, 24-10-11 rear)
cycle country bear force 48" plow kit
big gun eco es exhaust
tusk spacers (30mm front, 45mm rear)
edit: my friend just emailed me one of the pics i took, here it is:
