Coming off an '06 YZ450 with 140+ hours and a lot of off-road mods. I haven't ridden Kawasaki since a 1999 KX125. I've just read too many good reviews about the '09 KX450 and it was also just time. Got the purchase order approved (wife's ) Sunday night and picked it up Monday at work. I have a lot of parts on order to get it set-up the way I like. Flexx bars, bar mounts, grips, springs front and rear, ICS, Rekluse Pro, X-ring chain, Ironman sprockets, FMF Ti-Q slip-on, ECU programmer, hand guards, pre-printed backgrounds, and steering damper mount. I set my bikes up Worcs style, about 60% moto/40% off-road. I'll post more pics once everything is on. Pretty sad when you buy a $7500 bike these days and still have to add $2K worth of stuff to get it set-up the way you like.
