Figured I would start on the build thread a bit early, I pick her up next week. Thunder black smoke.

Already ordered some parts and getting ready to pull the trigger on the Dirty Bird exhaust.

I would almost say louder, sitting at the shop we can hear him coming from when he turns the corner coming towards us, little more then a quarter mile away, definitely a heard tuner and attention grabber in that aspect, fit and finish was easy too, get a stage one card downloaded into it as well.

It feels like riding a moped with a rocket powering it. Has no real weight to it. My only negative feedback so far is front wobble when heavily accelerating and again at high speeds (110+ gets pretty sketchy).

low price limitations

the scout is a good bang for the buck, maybe a little suspension tuning + modern radial tyres would help. i wonder how the rear shock angle effects handling as well. i only wish you could opt for better suspension + brakes from the factory negating costly upgrades with xtra take-off parts laying around.
