The Dirty Girl

Where to begin......I had my bike for alittle over 4yrs.All i ever did was race it.Wether it be in a lot or a track.The bike was built to do only one thing and that' to be raced.

It has come along ways from being stock,so the bike has evolved many times over from suspension to motor to light chassis mods.
I named my bike the dirty girl because every time i would lube up the chain.Then i'd go for alittle test run.The chain lube would get slung all over the place and with the slicks picking up the little debris, it would stick to the chassis and things.Plus some of the war scares she aquired over the years.LOL The bike is an x18.

The mod list includes:
1.yx 150cc base.
2.Nology coil.
3.Nology fire wire.
4.a big bore kit
5.TB v2 roller rocker head.(ported and polished)
6.28mm mikuni flatslide pumper carb.(This carb has a spray nozzle that sprays the fuel)Not as radical as my 28mm FCR down draft.But i got the motor tuned in easier with the Mikuni.LOL
7.A Dr.Frankenstien big bore custom underslung exhaust.
8.Tb oil cooler and braided lines.
9.custom dual front disc brakes.(with larger x18 rear rotors up front for the larger discs)
10.A custom front fork brace.It actually serves 2 purposes.(i made the brace recently so not seen i these pics)
11.Fully modded stock forks includes:spring preload adusters(custom made),modded damper rods internals,with bound and rebound adjustments.So now i have total control over the front fork action.This i am most proud of.
12.A custom made rear shock that has bound and rebound adjustments as well as spring preload.(I made this rear shock using 2 shocks from 2 different manufactures)
13.Front slick (soft compound)
14.rear slick (medium compound)
15.x1/x2 triples trees and bar clamps. I decided to go with this setup because with the x1/x2 triples being wider than the stock triples.Allowed me to use rims with wider hubs or use bigger brake calipers and rotors.The bar clamp from the x1/x2's seem to clamp better than the stocker.Plus the moved the bars foreward about an 1/2in.They also allow the bars to be moved out or closer in.So you can really make the bike more comfortable to your liking.
OH almost forgot.16. modded x7 foot peg brackets.
17.x7 fairings.
18.Slight chassis mods.
19.steering dampener.
20.Vapor trail tech digital speedo/rpm gauge/temp guage.

Well, at least he doesn't have a pinup on the tank doing something naughty ...... although he may after reading this post.

That's some serious modding, swheels. Good job!

Hey thanks
funny thing to i'm alittle superstitious about cleaning the bike to much.But yet i'll tinker with the carb and things when it's running great just to see if i can get alittle more out of her.LOL But i refuse to do a thorough cleaning.

Re: The Dirty Girl

Dayum, dude ..... that's one big exhaust can. Cool wheels, you did a nice job combining everything to make it work.

Thanks if your talking about the thermos.It's actually way smaller than the stock x18 exhuast.

Re: The Dirty Girl

Well i guess i can add the uni link rear suspension mod to the list.I really like it and it gives me much much much more tune-ability out of the rear shock.Now this setup allows me to raise and lower the rear of the bike 2ways.Plus now i can run a shock from 5'' on up to 9''.The biggest factor is i can run so many different spring rates it's crazy.Anybody on an xbike knows that you reeeeeaaallly can't venture far from the 1500lbs spring rate,especially if your racing road course on one of these bikes. Right now i'm using a 450lbs rated spring.On a stock setup,that wouldn't even be enough to hold the bike up under it's own weight.Not to even think if somebody was sitting on it.

It's a installed on the bike already.But heres i quick pic to give an idea.

Hey i don't really have to keep adding mods that i do to the list do i???? Cause i always doing something.

Re: The Dirty Girl

I thought x18s all had a single headlight, at least all the ones I've seen do. Did you swap the fairing on from something else?
