Hello from PHX

Hello,

Wanted to reach out to the group and say thanks! I have been lurking here for the last few months while I built, re-built, modded, and generally had fun with Revvy Betty here. Today seemed like a good day to become legit!

Betty started off as a 2006 EX250 and was found in the corner of a machine shop in Hartford, CT. Picked her up for $400 with a clean title. Lots of hours and tons of mods later she is pretty much sorted and a helluva lot of fun to ride.

It was much appreciated having this forum as a reference and starting point for things like gearing, jetting, valve adj, etc.

Thanks again and be careful out there.

~B

I used to have a pre-gen set up like that! Not as pretty, but functionally the same. Although this one looks louder...

Welcome
I went from stock header with VW Superbeetle pipes to a custom exhaust I welded up in the garage. It was way too loud at first, so I actually cut it back open and fit baffles. People are surprised with the sound, it is much quieter than it looks like it should be. I was worried about the outlet heating up my right leg, but the down angle keeps everything in check.

Greetings & Salutations Brett!!!

You may have seen my bike around east/south side of Phx? Loaned it to friend who was learning to ride couple months ago. We also go to Bike Night at Westgate every once in while.

I'm up in Cave Creek, north of the big city. I'll keep an eye out, can't miss that yellow! Ride safe.
