Secret....haha

I found a place I can get a hundred of them for pretty cheap.  They only fit the Douglas wheels for sure though.  I know they don't fit the Hipers.

Gotcha. I ran the GTT XC linkage on my TRX and it did the same thing, really softened up the shock. I had my shocks rebuilt/sprung then it was great. Helped smoothed out the rear over the rough stuff and lowered the ride height to where it should be. Found my link used on Ebay for $75 shipped, benefit of running a Honda...

Oh, and red, they only come in red.  lol

That's good to know about the GT thunder link.  I keep reading that the stock link is really good so I'm hoping to stick with it to save some coin.

haha  Easy there guys!  They're covers from the air filters we mounted on our machine to keep the insides clean.  They have the manufacturer and part number molded into them.  If you get a set, you can find out how much they are.  I can get 100 for $120.58.  Here's the site.  The ones I have are 1109's.

That's true, I never had any complaints with the stock LTR linkage. You're just silly for trying an Ebay drag link... Haha

Caplugs.  I just checked on ebay and you can get these for $2.50 apiece.  Everyone must have figured  out how cheap these are in bulk, because it wasn't very long ago you could pay $10.  A couple of years ago I was going to buy  a hundred and start selling them on ebay, but I am lazy.  I think it is insane how much the mudplugs are for hipers.

I don't have any close up pictures right now 08.

Yeah, I'd call it foolish looking back strubby.  lol

I was thinking of doing something similar Roger.  I wanted to find a size that fit the Hipers since so many people run them.  I just don't think I want to deal with that many plugs sitting around that won't sell.  haha  I could sell them cheap, but shipping would be killer.  And the fact that they only come in red is really limiting.  I do want a few more for the inners on the LTR though...it's a pain to clean the DWT wheels and the plugs do a great job.

In other news, I swapped the stock linkage back on the machine and I already like it better.  Didn't get to ride it yet.  I also trimmed about 3/8" off of the bump stop.  Made sure to grease all the needle bearings while I was in there too.  That's right, every pivot point on this LTR has needle bearings in it stock.  Crazy.

Went riding at that track with the stock linkage installed and played with some settings a bit.  It's a ton better than it was before.  Now I just need to hold on to the thing for the entire race.

Ended up with second in the last race.  Race went a ton better but my hands gave up early.  Damn blisters.

Was out riding the KTM, LTR, and a Scrambler 500 I'm fixing tonight with the wife.  If it tells you anything she hates the Scrambler (I'm not the fondest of it either), likes the KTM quite a bit, then rode the LTR and wants one of those.  She's that much more confident on the LTR with how it handles.  I felt the same way honestly.
