    Great vids and looks like the air quality has improved a lot!

    Must confess I still have no idea how you are able to "turn off" the rekluse function by adding that go-cart clutch but I assume you know what you're doing and that it works!

    Happy Trails!

    Nice bike and mods. Did you ever ride a 450EXC before you bought this bike?

    Ok just was wondering. I have ridden both the 200EXC and the 450EXC through the desert. The 450EXC was a lot easier to ride through the dunes. IMHO more balanced and solid through anything. Your bike is still a star though! Have fun with it up there! Great job on the mods.

    Due to the increased rotational mass of the 450 motor and the added weight of the motor itself = increased stability. This comes at a cost though. Although the 450 EXC is an excellent bike for the desert (I have owned 2 X 450 and 2 X 525), the 200 is probably better here in the sloppy stuff when jetted and sprung correctly. Now the new 350 thumper from KTM or the 250 XCF is probably a good "in between" in regard to the 200 EXC and 450 EXC for dirt use in Thailand.
    Cars are driven, bikes are ridden.
