its stupid does my head in, would of cost cheaper to get it from the UK haha, iv just ordered the pinned sprocket and layshaft, and i made sure there wernt no charges, and tbh if it says that the price of the bike is $599 it could be more expensive as my total was only $303 lol

I'll take you on with the M5, prefer being an underdog, that's how I surprised my friends on the KMX200!

Fingers crossed, I'm down there within the next 2 weeks.
