I race a 2004 CRF250X with a stock exhaust and while the bike is quiet, I still out run my friends with similar bikes that they have changed the exhaust and rejetted the carb for more speed and power.

I realize these bikes were only made for a couple years and have searched quite a bit without success. They clearnly don't make a lift or snorkel kit specifically for these bikes however I was curious if there were any kits similar that could be modified to fit. I read somewhere that a magnum...
What do you consider is high miles for a polaris or any atv?
My bear hunting guide in Quebec has 15,000 miles on his machine that he bought in 2006. It runs strong.
