    Tall Rider Question

    yeh I'd avoid using a tall seat where you can, nobody else has mentioned how tall seats mess with the turning of the bike, stick to stock seat and higher bars

    225 lbs riders (no gear), what are you using for spring rates?

    5.8 and .48 front gives nice front to rear balance

    Backfire after rebuild with HC Piston-rings

    always found my 06 would lean out on the pilot circuit with new piston and rings, try going to next size up pilot jet. Try adjusting fuel screw as well might be able to stop it with that

    still puzzled by the 06 backfireing

    jetting, go to a larger pilot, and check fuel screw is seated properly

    06 450 backfire

    it's common for bikes to run slightly lean after a rebuild, 1/4 to 1/2 turn out on fuel screw should cure your problem. Think the slight increase in compression is the cause.

    GP KX450's

    Thought the GP bikes had different sub frames?

    Electric start ????

    A few guys i know run 'kxf'd' klx's in that they've swapped to kxf plastics, tank, suspension and full pipe as well as removing the light but left the motors stock. They are very competitive, one of them won his class against all other mx 450s, he claims it hooks up better and is easier to ride fast for longer. I'd try the stock motor before modding.

    inner fork cartridge leak!

    thanks for the info, cleaned the seals but can hear one of the inner cartridges sucking air when i bleed it (pulling the rod on the out stroke). Trying to get a seal kit asap.

    Inner fork cartridge leak

    what about here in NZ?
  14. Anyone experienced problems with an inner fork cartridge leaking into the outer fork chamber? Seems the seals have gone around the "piston rod" but haven't heard of this happening before. Need to know if it's possible to just get new seals and not the whole unit, parts diagram is a bit unclear. Bike is a kxf 450 06. Cheers
