My son has moved from a pw 50 to a crf50 to a ktm 50 senoir adventure and is ready for something more although the seat height a 25.6 s great and the auto transmision is nice too. He wants a kx65, I have read some threads stating the seat height can be lowered pretty easily and I figure a z start from rekluse will remidy the automatic part for now. I also read by putting a washer in the end of the exhaust it will restrict the power enough to make a smooth transition. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. What I have not found is how to modify the bike slightly for trail use. We ride more than half of the time MX but also do a fair amount of trail riding... Any suggestions... Thanks So Much! T. Harte P.s. as a side note if anyone is from the northeast, do you now if Ubridge MX park(in Uxbridge Mass.) is open and if so what's there schedule? Any other similar tracks near ct.???
