  1. I like to think the "PowerParts" have something to do with it. KTM isn't dumb. They know they can make money off new bikes as well as parts that should have came with the bike. Almost 11k for a 2020 KTM 450 XC-F and they cant even give the bike a skid plate
  2. yup, there is no 2020 model year for the RMX, all the other bikes are still there though
  3. Thank you. People seem to forget Suzuki won a pro motocross championship only a few years ago in 2016. I love my RMX. Super durable, weighs less than a new Honda CRF450X, tons of aftermarket parts and great dealer support, and my suzuki dealer always gives me deals on stuff. Suzukis are great bikes. I wish people would stop acting like they're obsolete or something. I would have paid 10k for my RMX. 10/10 would recommend.
  4. he's probably referring to removing the snorkel from the air box
  5. Hey long time no see. Bike is still running amazing, about to turn 1400 miles

    2010 RMX450

    if you get a full system an RMZ header will bolt right up to an RMX head no problem. but if you decide to get just a slip-on for an RMZ it may not fit the stock RMX header, or at least mine didn't on my 17. I have also read about some aftermarket RMZ slip-ons not fitting on RMZ headers, so your mileage may vary. If you get a full system it will bolt right up
  7. not sure about the chain or if a 15t sprocket will fit. Yes the speedometer can be recalibrated for different size wheels. Not sure what other wheels fit. Yes the Power Up unit is the same as the Cherry Bomb. Not sure how quiet RMZ exhaust is.
  8. I think it will *fit* but there is no place to put the battery and nowhere to house all the electronic do-dads. But if your doing a full RMZ engine swap like that it really wouldn't matter then. You would also need and RMZ airbox and left side panel
  9. here you go. the top and middle gear have a washer on either side. the bottom little gear just has a large spacer. the gears should be able to be turned by hand
  10. You're allowed to have two RMX450Z's? jk but you definitely have something backwards. I'm pretty sure this is the right diagram, hope it helps. I'm due to check my strainers so when I pull mine apart i'll get some pictures and video

    Blue smoke.

    That is totally normal. Since the bikes are designed to run lean this consequently makes them crazy run hot so the ring gaps need to be a little larger, so the will burn oil when you start them up cold. After about a minute of warming up the smoke should go away. Also when you start the bike don't rev it at all until its been idling for a few minuets to prevent it from burning excess oil
  12. What ever you do, DON'T REMOVE THE AIR FILTER CAGE MESH, my DRZ caught on fire because of this, it would probably only give you an extra .03 HP anyway. If you plan on keeping it stock, remove the throttle stop and that's it. The bike is still great in stock form. If you do want to mod it, do a slip-on exhaust, the JD Jetting tuner, and remove the snorkel in the air box, and you have a whole new bike. The suspension is pretty soft, so if your a big guy or you plan on really sending it, you might want to get it re-sprung.
  13. I can't stand KTM's. They feel like barrels with handlebars when you sit on them, and I just can't justify spending thousands of dollars extra on a bike for less reliability and a few less pounds. I've seen too many KTM's leaking oil or blown up altogether to every considering owning one.
  14. I wouldn't bother with the throttle body swap either. If the RMZ's is larger,which it probably is, that just means that the intake boot to the motor and the airbox boot won't fit. Even if you got it to fit somehow, it won't do you any good since it has to pull air through the very restrictive RMX airbox and filter, which is also not interchangeable with the RMZ so you would have to make swiss cheese of the airbox and loose the flame arrestor on the air cleaner cage. Actually, pretty much everything attached to the subframe except the exhaust and seat is not interchangeable between the RMX and RMZ (including the subfame itself). The wiring harness is also completely different between the two because all the do-dads on the RMX like the electric start, lights speedometer and so on. It sounds to me like you should just go buy an RMZ if you really want an extra 6 horsepower and less torque lol
