Hi Guys,

been meaning to post a mod/build thread for a while on my 2012 Motovert 160R.
i reasearched the bike for a while before i bought it and decide for the money i was getting the best buy for my buck, after previously owning a 07" atomik proX 140 and 09" pit Pro 90 SemiAuto i had a fair idea on what i wanted and i knew i was gonna have to spend a little more than i had in the past.

I knew i wanted a midsize coz i felt the best on a seating position like my Atomik but I wanted a better suspension setup straight out the box and more power with plenty of upgrade options.

the bike i chose is pretty much a copy of the pitster pro and the psto so i knew i was getting quality" as far as china goes.

I want to custom my vert a bit and make it my own, bit of a waste of cash but im sure you all can relate and + growing up is over rated. Im going to start with some Wanky bits and then look into the V2 head and all further down the track

One word to describe this bike is "FNawesome” took a while to kick over for the first time but once I got it going I was wrapped, everything feels right the only adjustment I will make is to raise the back brake lever a little bit as I found it hard to push all the way down with boots on other than that the power is unreal and overall the bike is really fun to ride, its solid as a big bike and the range in the gears is huge it felt like 3rd went forever the suspension is tops too.

The day i got it:cheeky-smiley-031:








Few happy snaps while out




Dynamics helped me out big time with doing some graphics so pumped to get them on the bike!!


Stay tuned!!!

So i got the kit from the man!
i was going to take it to the bike shop to get some help to put it on but then decided to do it myself, it took about four hours and a heck of patience but i am happy with the result.

This bike looks sick. Graphics totally change the bike, good choice. Definately worth the effort. Look forward to more updates.

Good job putting the decals on man. Look pretty flawless! I recon its waaaay easier leaving the plastics on the bike though, so you've got a solid surface to work against.... Will move some of the artwork around to fit on the panels better too on the next lot too... didnt realise it was going to wrap over the edges under the seat...
Top job though!

Not to bad a job yourself mate, for the first set of ttr style plastics you have done you couldn't have got much closer, there are three creases on the rear right guard the photos don't show but for my first go I'm happy, I found it better to have the plastic on a bench, get the set position n then be able to work it every which way n then go over all the edges with the heat gun and get rid of any bunching. I really took my time n took your advice, I didn't float them on I just went for it , it was hard but I'm glad I did it myself n had fun doing it. If I had taken it to the shop they would have just wacked it on.

anyone looking for custom pitbike graphics should seriously contact Dynamics awesome bloke does awesome work

Sick as mate, looking flippin awesome!!!!!! Go for gold man, but I wouldn't be changing those levers if I were you man, they are pretty good and would be only worth upgrading for a legit set of ASV's (not worth the coin on the pitty in mo lol)

But yeah reps my man, looking awesome!
