Kx450f Fly Wheel Weight?

Recommended Posts

First of all thank you to all that contribute to this awsome site! Has anyone tried or know anyone that did, use a fly wheel weight on the kx450f? I read different articles about them, and was wondering if its a worthy cause. At 47 me and the big greeny are going to start racing motocross again, after a leg break a couple years ago I thought I was done,but I got the bug again! Man I love this sport!

The company was( stealthy off road) . They had a add in last months dirt rider mag . they have two for the kx450f a 7oz and a 9oz , i went with the 9oz . I have not had it out since the weight was put on except to run it around the yard ( to hot for me (only ride woods) but it did seam to help the stalling issue . I will post more after i have a chance to get the bike out to the trails .

:thumbsup: I don't get to ride much , i work every other week end and my bud's work all week (i get a lot of time of during the week but i don't like riding by my self ) any way back to the subject . I got to take it for a little ride today and it was a good purchase , does what i wanted it to do (lets it lug and keep running with out having to abusing the clutch)

I did not want to soften the hit thats the reason i only put a 9oz weight on it instead of looking for a larger one . And the hit seams to be the same ! but the area it did help was , stalling on technical trails so now i don't haft to slip the clutch that creates a lot of heat , wear on the plates and that puts a lot of garbage in the oil that doesn't need to be there .And i do have a fmf Q-2 slip on and it does have a spark arrester and i did not notice a loss of power .
