    how much oil for the 06?

    in the manual it says 1.3 litres . . .i got told by a factory kawi rider to run 1.25 litres becasue 2 much crankcase pressure builds up n ends up blowing the o-ring that seals the fill hole cap

    06 engine cooling issue

    the problem arises from the cooling passges in the head. The water passages dnt pass the left hand inlet valve efficiently, creating a hot spot. You will exprience a significant head reduction by increasing the water flow into the left hand radiator and re-plumbing the cooling system by turning the "y" hose fitting 90 degrees. The error of margin still will be small but running engine ice coolant will help slightly more.

    engine help!

    sounds pretty bad 2 me . . . one of my mates 06 kxf starting making a loud knockin sound from the motor .. he took it in 2 get fixed. . .they replaced the whole top end but it was still there . . they then went further down n his crank had cracked or sumthing similar . . it cost him $1800 after 15 hours on the bike
  11. valves, valve sprins, valve seats, piston, rings, etc. all the small stuff adds up . . here in australia a 06 kxf inlet valve is $175 so times that by 2 $330 for inlets, n then exhaust valves r $130 here so thats $260 . .. 260+330= $590 for valves, n then piston rings n valve seats . . i got a quote here n it was goin to be bout $900 inlcuding labour

    Will I be disappointed...

    i use my 06 kxf for mainly trail riding . . . its goes hard and is great 2 ride in tight stuff becuase it is fairly light . . . i put a new pipe on mine and geared the back 2 a 48 and that provides more top end to make it easier to ride . . giving me more top end does mean i have to use clutch a little bit more but im not complaining because its great.

    Top end done at 60 hours

    thats ncie 2 hear then . . my 06 kxf made it to 60 hours 2day ;] . . n i havnt touched the motor at all . . i do oil every 6 hours, oil filter every 12 and air filter when needed ( bout 2 hours) and 2mrw im checking my valve clearances . . . its great to see another rider with a kxf that hasnt blown up yet ;]
