"What country before ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve itís liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms." -Thomas Jefferson, Nov 13, 1787

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." -George Washington, Jan 7, 1790

i got this bike with a salvage title from a guy that was gonna part it out. it had 1700 miles on it. i have resurected it.

Ah-ite, need more pics though...

Anyway vette, I want to know more about that Moose EZ pull clutch lever and perch. It basically makes your clutch lever a one finger pull all the time, right? Do you have to bypass the clutch switch? What is it like for normal and/or aggressive riding (not stunting just aggressive shifting)?

Thanks and good luck...

i can get more pics. i actually entered it as a joke but i do have some REALLY good pictures of it when it was first painted. ill try to get them today.


the moose/asv ezpull setup:

you do have to bypass the clutch switch. but if you jump the 2 wires together your bike will start in any gear with the clutch out... so make sure you have the clutch pulled in.

or you can just unhook the clutch switch and have to start the bike in neutral which is def the safest.

the clutch lever setup is awesome for feel. one finger operation all day long. you jsut have to keep it lubed well.

you can get the setup for like $60... remember its for dirtbike. mine is cut down so only one finger can work the lever in the pic so i can work the clutch and handbrake at the same time.

^Yeah, IDK if you're gonna take this one home but, you do have some interesting mods done on that bike. I'd like to see the GSX-R pipe, that must look interesting.
Anyway, thanks for the quick answers.

^ So how does this work? When you pull in the front brake lever, it squeezes that caliper on the right?

Edit: and you should put more pics in the entry thread.

no. on caliper is for the footbrake master. the other caliper is connected to the rear handbrake , which is a bar mounted master cylinder (commonly just a flipped front master cylinder) and its mounted commoonly underneath the clutch lever.

Yeah, I've seen other guys w/the rear handbrake under the clutch lever but, I didn't see one in the 1st pic so that's why I asked. Is there one that I just missed, I can't tell?

pretty cool that you know enough about bikes to know how to do this shit though.

The bike looks crazy as hell. How long did it take you to get it looking like that?

Drop some more pics and PM me the link to them or something.

good luck mate!
