    I was beginning to wonder where you were going to use that Engine Ice. Then I saw that it's just a kicker hold down.

    Man, I think those NOS forks could sell for enough money for you to get a much better front end. If it were me, I'd throw those back in the box and see what I could get for them.
    Looking for a Bassani silencer for a 2nd gen tecate, the style with the movable mount. 1st gen will work

    Making a real foot pedal for the 200x. This will solves one of the last issues with 1st gens. I used oilite bronze bushings as my 1st test. My next idea is uhmw. Not finished but you get the idea. It attaches to the lower foot pedal boss, not the upper rear one.

    nice! I have wanted to try a modern mx bike rear mater cylinder which incorporates the reservoir and mc into one piece.
    Put your butt on the inside fender or end up on the ground!

    Not a fan of the rear master and link geometry. Should be lower and closer to the frame so the pedal tab isn't clocked so far into the range of motion. Unless you have a pedal stop which would be weird, it has a risk of flopping past and the pedal dropping. Time will tell.

    I needed to leave room for the chain adjustment system. There is room on the upper pedal peg post to attach a return spring. The kicker and chain adjustment do not leave much room for ideas to move items. The foot petal was going to get a wire attached to frame. However on my laster I run neither the pedal wire strap or a return spring and the master cylinder returns by the spring tension in the 450R master cylinder.

    I think this is the 3rd frame I have changed a pedal and master cylinder, each keeps coming up in similar locations. The 200x frame is just too small. If I wanted the pedal on the motor none of this would of been needed.

    See folks. He knows what I'm saying because he actually does this stuff. Didn't take offense to a suggestion just explained his method. Exchanging ideas.

    I have an aftermarket motor so I had to make a pedal too. My master is in the stock location and it works fine. If it works it works but it definitely doesn't HAVE to be that way. Just hate to see that pedal over rotate dig into the ground and turn into an ankle breaker.

    I had one idea to use a lay down master like they do on scrambler 400/500's but the foot pedal would of been so small and needed a boss put on the main frame under the motor. The pedal is the last thing to do on. It's done but I want to triple check once the motor is back in, kicker rebuild etc. Some guys want to retain the full OEM-ness of these toys. I think that's great if its going to sit around. I want to use it and not keep on hoping for nice parts at 40 years old. I had about $8 in new oil-lite bronze bushings.

    As long as the travel looks when it was all hooked up I only had 1/4" of pedal play. About the same as most other atvs I have here. The span looks long, however the extension adapter only added 3" It ended up being just a hair longer then banshee / warrior rear master cylinders. I had many here to choose and play with. I stuck with TRX450R since I run all that same stuff and have spare parts for my blaster using it. I am also using the same master cylinder on my TRX200sx I am converting to rear hydraulic disk brakes. I try and allow for tool / maintenance work on the machines also. I didn't just slap something on there, but the more you do something and more people involved the better product and outcome you get. This is why I like the forum better then FB group. The guys in the groups have no thinking or money to even try an idea out. Well some of the big players so but lets face it, most guys are not putting 10 grand into a 200x. Neither am I, Most of my things are build from spares laying around from parting machines out. I just want it to look like a 200x when I am done and fix a bunch of it's oddly designed worn out issues. I've learned to no take offense to anything, no need to start issues / make people mad. Just all work together and learn from each other.
