    Looking to do some upgrades to Jekyll 800 '03

    I'm thinking about upgrading the drive train on my 03 Jekyll 800 to all XT '04 hardware. It is pretty much stock and I'm thinking of ways to lighten up a bit, hence the upgrades. I'm looking to see what suggestions any of you may have to this effect and what your opinions would be in regards upgarding to the XT '04 drivetrain.

    I thought about doing that to my 01 900 SL but after spending nearly $250 (Easton Carbon handle Bar, Easton Seatpost, lighter Tubes) I decided to stop since it was only ounces in weight savings. My Jeckyl without "Lefty" weighs around 23 lbs, pretty light for a FS.

    I did get a lighter feel lifting the front end for obstacles with the Easton Bar. As far as drivetrain, Im pretty happy with XT Front, XTR rears.

    good luck
