    Re: Factory Pipe 550 Half Pipe

    Did this come off a 550sx reed motor? My understanding is that there is a later version of this pipe, trying to confirm when it was made.

    Re: Not impressed with 550/bone stock 650 swap.

    I would go the 38 or 42mm Keihin route over the Mikuni sbn. I had both on my 650sx and the keihin was easier to mess with.

  26. Re: best crankshaft option for 550sx engine build?

    They have them although they don't list them specifically for the 550sx.

    I figured it was junk. It has to be since it's 1/2 as much as the other brands. I've had good luck with both goki and aquatorque so I guess I'm going to spend more to get a good one.
