bought a 2001 lakota new in 2001, did the common mods, 13t sprocket,suppertrap ,airfilter and jets..only popped wheelies reving motor and popping clutch on blacktop. bought an ebay junker 2001 lakota for $350 that had carb off and plastic off in the rain till motor siezed. bored out .20 over installed oversize stock piston,mikuni vm 32mm round slide carb , ported out the exhaust port the same size as the pipe gasket and removed enough material that i could fit my thumb through the port compared to stock little finger size. the stock muffler pipe had a welded ring restrictor near head. ground it out and installed clamp on air filter 13t sprocket. after setting up the main jet and a twist throttle, I now pull a wheelie in 1st gear just twisting the throttle on flat pavement. racing my other lakota I am 2 lengths ahead before hitting 2nd. Carb and porting is the best mods hands down!!! for the experimental mechanic this could be achieved on a running quad fo under $150.00 . carb and extra jet $105,top-end gasket kit $26 shipping $11 porting "free"
