decent....

go for it...


Its better than the DK Fury you were planing on getting, even though its used, because the 4 pack is full 4130 chromoly and has a better parts package...

could you bunnyhop like 5inches before?? weight doesnt really matter a whole lot. its in your head that you cant bunnyhop with a heavier bike, your prolly not feeling your bike a whole lot right now since you just got it, no offense, but you should still be able to bunny hop just as high as you could, its only an 8 pound difference, like riding around with your back pack on.

*sigh*

It isnt the weight of the bike that affects bunnyhops. I can go 2+ feet on my 70lb bike, and only a little bit higher on my General Lee.

He has to be lying or exageration.

Anyways...weight shouldnt matter when your getting a complete, because of all the things that you can do to lighten it up, for exapmle cutting bars or seatpost, and or gettin lighter parts as you break heavy ones. You also have to take into consideration that each peg weighs like 1 pound so if you take those off for a while until you can bunnyhop and want to start grinding, youll save weight...

i could barely bunnyhop on my lighter bike but i can still bunnyhop on my DK Four Pack, but just a little lower. But its alot better for everything else. Like for barspins how the cables are in those holes i forgot what you call them maybe it was rotor cables. But its so easy to barspin! Thanks for all the Great advice if anyone else has any comments be sure to talk.

You still have to get used to the geometry of your new bike, along with its weight...

Dont worry, just keep riding it...itll take about a week or two

Because it's made by Yamaha.

That isnt my EXACT one, but it's the same year and everything. My serial# was only a few off of this one. I still have the original pad, seat, tires, tubes and everything.
