    mx,sx, i ride a 06 kx450f. and a suzuki ltz 400 quad. born ohio. currently us.army infantry stationed at ft.cambell. married 3 boys. USA,music,riding,family,
  1. Have 06 , 06-07 are pretty much the same .... What newer 450 plastic (full set) fit 6-07???
  2. Double check drain plug , possible plug gasket under the valve covers needs to be replaced . Mine did same thing but came out of the weeping hole .. Replaced gasket no issue .
  3. Alright gents I'm back with another HC question/questions.... Issue : bike won't kick start , but bump starting (runs strong like should) Guesses: sticky valve / ignition issue (possible need more spark) 1: suggestions on the kick starting issue. ( possible issues) 2: suggestions on the ignition question. (Do HC pistons require more spark) 3: what tuning should be done with HC piston 13:1 wiseco? Keep in mind I have had the valves adjusted, bike kick started 2-3kick. Must been amateur hour because I had replace filter and replace bad intake boot but forgot to tighten the intake boot and hit jump & shaft shift went down locking bike in gear......Total run time with loose intake boot and new valve adjustment approx 5in. Replaced all issues , Now won't kickstart but bump starts and runs super strong. Again thinking maybe possible valve job or not enough spark for the HC piston. Ight 3,2,1 go!
  4. Around fort hood ! Where do I ride ??? Places*
  5. How does higher octane allow the bike to run cooler?
  6. Like said usually run 87pump and I don't have any issues as stated above previously but I've been reading a lot about guys with high comp pistons running race fuels or vp to prevent detonation issues. I have about 3 grand in my rebuild so this has got my attention . Thanks for your help .
  7. Hey does anyone know or have an idea on the best approach to gas to run as far as stock vs a 13:1 high compression wiseco piston . Im currently running 13:1 high compression wiseco in my 06 kx450f . My question is besides the above .... I'm running 87 pump because I under the impression higher grade make my bike run hotter in return more mechanical failure . Under impression that with the 13:1 high comp piston I should be running higher octane 110 vp or something. What do you guys think ? I don't want to detonate my piston or blow my bike over a gas problem .
