    $3900. Guy wanted 5 orginally in his ad said hed let it go for $4200. I wanted to make it street legal so I offered $3900 because the wiring harness and lights are expensive. I got it home and it was already wired just had to buy the turn signals and tail light! Scored big haha

    For the fist hour/ first 12 miles you are suppose to run the engine at low to moderate speeds. Start up and let the engine idle/ warm up and run at 1/2 throttle for 20 minutes. Let it cool then for the next 40 minutes run it at 3/4 throttle. After that change the oil and your set. At 26 miles I would just change the oil and call it good. Weird I just picked up one of these bikes as well, 2009 with 49 miles. Curious how much you paid if you dont mind me asking.

    So I bought a 09 KLX450R

    When you say KX full exhaust system do you mean one from FMF? I've been looking at the factory 4.1 from them bout would love to throw on a KX version??? I bought a set of UFO replacement sie panels for a 09 KX, guess they wont fit?
  7. Just picked up a 2009 klx450r and was wondering if there are wires tucked away to connect the turn signals? I see I have the switch already mounted on the bars but what to make it legal. Sicass racing sells a whole street legal kit I used before but if I dont need to buy the wiring i rather save the money and not. Thanks for your HELP!
  8. So I came across this KLX450r online. Its located 900 miles away from me but the price is so good it can't be true. Heres the ad on cycle trader... http://www.cycletrader.com/listing/2008-KAWASAKI-Klx-450r-103167588 I contacted the dealer as to why there was no decription and how many miles/ hours the bike had. He replied and said the bike does not have an hour meter on it and the bike runs strong. The plastics are a little beat but it was a trade in on a 2006 yz450. They got it at a steal thats why its marked down so low. Im just loking for thoughts, I guess Im interested in it because the price is right, and because the bike comes with a few nice add ons. Let me know your thoughts, anyone in Atlantic, IA wanna take a look at it for me?? Thanks guys Matt

    Few Questions on a 2006 KX450

    Excellent! Thanks for the insight, I will try and see what I can get him down to. Im not looking to steal it though but a fair price would be nice. Theres a few 2008-2009 bike around but out of my price range. Question is should I wait to grab one of those since there fuel injected?

    Few Questions on a 2006 KX450

    I've recently realized I now need another bike. Two years ago I had a 08 KTM 450 that I turned into a supermoto and flipped back and fourth with. Enjoyed it but man was it expensive, so I sold it and Im now looking. Seems as though I lost all my knowledge on bikes. I've found a bike Im interested in, 2006 KX450 from a guy who says hes the second owner and has ran it maybe 5 hours himself. Dont believe him but thats besides the point. Hes asking 2,500 on a completely stock bike except for a slip on. Its never been raced, has not needed service, and runs great. My questions are directed to the price and if I need to be worried about any problems from that years production. Upon reading I saw a few things about wrist pins breaking. About how much is a top end if I were to purchase and it really needs it? Any other info would be greatly appreciated.
