thanks baxter and yes i am fine. i think im swaying towards oem on everything except the clutch the matlock seems to be a good sounding option.
and i do run a 13t however i do A LOT of rock climbing and crawling there is just something about coming up a 3 ft ledge vertical and railing on that throttle to get to the top. the pass fail factor kinda turns me on!!!

This should help and hope you are OK.
1 clutch - 2 choses Matlock which is an upgrade kit or EBC which is a replacement kit
2/3/4 a-arms - Ebay for oem or aftermarket ones. Teixeira Tech ,Houser,laeger or IMS Roll
5 radiator - PWR and DMC make aftermarket ones . Yamaha of Troy had oem on offer last week.
6/7 easy upgrade ,just choose one to your likin.

Cesar has +2 laeger a-arms.
I agree with everybody else on the a-arms. Sometimes you can find used stock a-arms on eBay for cheap. Otherwise I would upgrade like Cesar said. I like the Baha 2 bumper from prm.the matlock clutch is a good choice. Maybe try a 13t sprocket for the ruff stuff if you don't already have one. It'll help save your clutch.

I can only help you with 1, 6 and 7. With one, I got the Matlock clutch a while ago. I guess it has been a little over a year ago. Well, when I first put it in I was like WTF, as it was so hard to pull in so I thought I jacked something up, so I tore it all apart again to find nothing wrong what so ever. So everything went back together. It has been stiff ever since, but it has gotten better. Not as easy to pull in as stock, but after talking to Matlock and stuff he said it would probably last a life time for most of the stuff I do. For 6 and 7, I use PRM products. The front and rear bumpers I use are the control ones. They didn't send any rubber gromets for the spacing in the front, and I had to get it rewelded once, looks like it will be a second time, but I can't say it was from normal riding, as I definately have mowed stuff over with it. It is big and beefy, and that is why I got it. Squeak just got one from them and they sent him some grommets (washers) with it and his actually flexes when you grab it. I think they got on the band wagon about it, but I can't remember what bumper he exatly got. For the Grab Bar, I had to grind some of the actual bar off as it wouldn't fit with my FMF Exhaust, and when you look at it, it looks like it was made that way. It is very heavy duty. I welded two cross members in it to carry a small tool bag. If you want, send me your number and I can take a few pics for you. It is also very beefy, and I got it for winter races as the people there don't care if they hit you.
For the radiator, I haven't seen anything aftermarket out there for our bike yet except hoses, so OEM will probably be your best bet, along w/ the ball joint boot, which you could probably get right on Cheapcycleparts. As for the A-arms, besides stock you could get a package from teixiera tech that has adjustments on it. Or you could do Houser. Again, I am not too familiar with them for this machine, so hopefully someone that runs them has some reviews.
Glad you are okay though. I hate those stupid nights LOL.

1... HD clutch kit by Matlock.. as soon as my clutch goes, I'm ordering a kit myself. Baja proven!!
2-4... I say, since you have to replace, might as well upgrade. Houser and TeixeiraTech are great. Or if you want to save some money, I have a set of Laeger's. Can't go wrong with any...
5.... If I'm not mistaken, Duncan has a replacement radiator (PWR i think.. or something like that) Do you need the whole radiator, or just that tube?... Never had experience with it, so can't elaborate much.
6-7.. PRM! Like I said, if you're replacing, might as well upgrade!
