William Wallace

How do u find the XT? My son was a bit disapointed in the beginning regarding the loose front end but Droomers did make a plan. At 188km per hour she runs smoothly. No Prop.

Thanks for the awsome pics and RR

boere can you please tell me what droomers did. I want my XT to run at 188km/h also....The fastest I could get her was 182.
About that loose front end. I cannot complain.
For me the XT is an awesome bike. I ride mine like a supermotard in the city and like a enduro in the dirt. It gives what I ask for. Its nimble and forgiving.
But what did droomers do on your son's bike?
