    Rmx1995 will this carb fit ??

    It should fit. I just put a PWK ( like as in last Saturday) off of Beta 300 on my 92. Its is however shorter length like Mikuni but I will bet it will fit. Worst case you may have to put a adapter. The stock PJ isn't a bad carb though, way better than a Mikuni
  2. I realize that this thread is over a year gone by but anymore updates on this? The carb I just put on mine has TPS that I was just going to ignore or remove. Doesn't have a powerjet though. Also, I would love to talk to you about wiring. I made my 17 KX450 street legal and did a ton of rewiring on it, using a lot of the same stuff you use but the asthetics of my harness are not, hmm, how do I say this? not quite as nice as yours. What part of Washington are you in? You can PM me if you like. Thanks
  3. Hey guys, I just picked up a 92 RMX so I'm scouring all info I can find on it. I used to have a 1990 which I installed a 92 RM cylinder and head on but that was back then so I'm rusty in what it needs. I also just installed a Keihen PWK Airstiker that came off of a Beta so I have some jetting to do. Never thought I'd be jetting a bike again. I have no idea what gaskets it has but it was raced in a 6hr Team race at Eddieville before and got 3rd Overall AA so its no slouch. I haven't heard about the power valve issue so no I have to decide whether to check it ou or not. The guy who rebuilt it used to be a AMA pro mechanic so I would assume he knew about it but do I want to trust that assumption? Anyway, any other tidbits of info that's worth knowing about?

    OEM rear shock rebuild kit?

    I know this is a little late but since no one else chimed in, I thought I would. But the answer is no. In fact I was just reading through the OEM service manual and their way to rebuild the shock is to replace it. That being said, you can get the individual parts for the inside and any good suspension shop can do it for you. I usually tell my customers to buy a new shock. The hard part is finding spec for the shock but since Kawi considers it a throw away shock, they don't have it. Thats why I'm here. I would hoep though that you got the answer to this question a long, long time ago. I just wanted hear myself talk

    Kx 450f lighting help

    Hey thanks for taking those for me. I see you have the LED setup as mine did but all of the parts and wires were loose and I had to figure where to put them. Do any of the wires or headlight itself hit the CDI? That was my main issue. I'll take a pic or two of what I have now and show you the difference. And I also have a single LED bulb setup thats actually brighter than the BD setup. Lots of trial and error, not to mention countless wire connectors (and wire of course)

    Kawasaki KX450F 2017

    Had a 2016 KX450, which I loved. So much so that I bought this 17. Not a ton of difference but its fresh. Only major changes I made it that its not completely street legal, but with the ability to be in full moto trim in about 10 minutes.

    I guess what I am interested in is this; are all of the components (horn, flasher unit, wiring harness) all mounted in the headlight shell? When you look at BD website they show it all mounted there on their original headlight shell, with an aluminum case built in. And by original, I mean its the one that looks like an 83 XR500 light, not the MMX shell. But when I bought mine, even with that shell, it was all loose, no aluminum case, not mounted. I can't remember the reason why they sent it that way but it has been a pain since. But if by chance you have any pics of the backside of your headlight, could you post them?

    Dual sport tire reviews?

    Where did you price the tire? I know it can be a bit more on east coast pricing due to shipping but the dealers do have a map policy in place that gives them a bit of flexibilty. May check with Rocky Mt and see if what their price is. I'm not sure if they buy those or not Update; wow, they are pricey aren't they? Had no idea. Guess it helps to know certain people. Still a very good tire.

    Goldentyre 723 front and rear. Works well on both dirt and trail but it is made to wear better so it gives a a tad of traction for longevity

    Nice. What headlight is that? It looks like you reinforced it on te sides. I did on mine. I'm curious how the wiring harness fits there with your CDI

    Kx 450f lighting help

    You definitely can build your own. The power comes from the capacitor plus I know someone that tapped into the diagnostic plug near the front. But the capacitor setup is best and Baja Designs sells a wiring harness for about $30 that does the connecting for you

    Slammer, what state are you in? And would you care to share pics of it? I installed the BD on my 17 and then spent the next 4 months redoing it over and over again. I finally made one from scratch, routing the wires where I wanted them to go. And I used Deuscth connectors where possible so the headlight with horn and flasher unit, all come off with one plug. I did buy a Tusk wiring harness that I used as the template if you would to help things out. My whole issue revolved around the light and CDI box fighting for the same space Heres a small pic of mine
