    Brought this EC 450 F racing model new (feb 2014),plan to use as a road/adventure bike.Have had linny from DAS,CHCH,work some of the suspension.Have added a 13 mm spacer in the rear shock to lower the seat height about 26 mm and and put a heaver spring for a rider around 110 kg.Got a set of wheels off a 02 KLX 300,rear wheel slots straight in the spacers are 2 different sizes,shorter one goes on the disc side,the front wheel had to get some spacers made,as the KLX has a 15mm front axle.Got a speedo for a push bike and used the magnet for the pick up. Have fitted Heidenau K60 Adventure tires onto the KLX rims .Running 14/44 gearing.Tried 15/40 gearing,good on open road,but hopeless on 50kph and slower zones.Running mousse tubeless on the original rims ,only do 4 to 5 trail rides a year,most of my riding is exploring the back tracks around Ashburton,(and there are lots of them )Have replaced chain guide and bottom roller with after market ,has stopped most of the noise.Also replaced o ring chain with a non o ring .Cost was nz$14000 plus on road.In the process of adding stronger hand guards.Have added an Acerbis 2 litre handle bar tank,now have a good chance of making it home.Might have a play around with a Yamaha long reach tank.
