You should read the old thread from the guys discussing the Schumacher M5 Anderson race on that grass track over there. I think the guy on the fastest orange bike mentioned his high kv motor was overkill.

Btw, I looked into that dxr slipper for my dx450. When I looked at pictures of the dxr race bike, the shaft used looked like it was designed differently, maybe shorter or the inner shaft grooves for e-clips didnt look right. I wanted to do it, but I passed. I will be curious what you find out if you do the mod.
Maybe it's overkill, but now you mentioned it, that and the Alpen cup threads need re reading...
I'll order the DXR clutch regardless. You never know what can be brewed up.

I have tried one where you can actually pick up the entire bike by the tail section with no sign of flexing so should be able handle the odd wheelie no problem
He can colour the gel coat in any of the standard Anderson colours
Slightly heaver than original but feels more robust
Send me a pm. It's either that or I'm looking for piano wire to fix a 'drag' bar.
