well....

took the pitpro 140 bigfoot out to the miniriders of sa ride day

was a great day and a good turn out seeming in the morning the waether was crap

the bike ran awsome all day had no problems with anything apart from a stack and breaking the right hand brake lever... so upgrade is needed.

so yeah vert very happy with the bike and cant wait to do a few upgrades and get it out there again very soon.

brakes should get better when they bed in a bit, if they don't u need to bleed them and lube the caliper pins

yeah sneezy's front brakes are ****. his brothers bike, however, which is identical, same brakes etc etc, has epic front brakes and does killer nose wheelies...
Fall asleep on the Quality control assembly line much??

Decent brake fluid, lube the pins, etc etc, might introduce a little more bite...

Update on the pitpro... Over last fewonths had one major problem... Think stator shit itself was running like shit etc... Outcome was a new yx motor from dhz with z40 cam. Also threw on a 26mm oko with 36pilot jet at 96main jet. Also get some pro tapers, asv levers, billet shifter and 1/8 billet throttle
running great at the moment just gettingvit ready for the pit day on the 30th :)

Yum :p

I want one so bad after riding one at broady, Ive ridden about 10+ pittys or so and its my favorite by far handles great and the balance point when you go over jumps is awesome. With the crf50 style you really have to lean back but with the big foot you just jump and stays nice and level and is super easy to control and get fast on.

Think ill look out for a second hand one and fix it up a bit...

yeha its slowly getting there..cant wait to take it out in a few weeks.

believe it or not but the smaller wheels make it handle sooooo much better. and the maxxxis tyres are awsome.

if anyone readsd this thread and is looking at buying one i STILL after owning for a year recomend this bike. i did all the pre start checks when i first got it. i do regular services, and check all bolt after a ride.

and doing this all i have replaced are things for upgrades.

pics i took on the weekend below.

any suggestions on what i can do next?
