    06 KX-450F Piston

    Hi guys ! I would like to know wich is the best Pistons that i can used to replace the Original one. I just bought a left over brand new 06 model, and i don't want to take any chance with the original. Can i used an OEM 07 model ( does it corect the problem). I read the thread about those piston, but i'm a bit confused about wich piston will be the more reliable. I prefer oem than Wiseco, bt if its better i'll go with Wiseco or other. Please let me know.

    Considering leaving Blue for Yellow?

    I have both of them in my garage (1 YZ-426 ,1 YZ-426/450,and 1 RMZ-450 05) 1st i can tell you that my RMZ , is awsome in the corner if you compare with the YZ front end pushing. Suspension wise The RMZ is smooter without botoming. The RMZ is very easy to ride fast for a long period.For Me my RMZ fell a lot lighter. ANd on the jump it feels great. I also realy love the 426 , its a great bike and you can't have a better bike for reliability. I would say for motocross: RMZ , supermoto YZ-426/450 ( 5 speed) ,for trail riding yz-426 bigger tank,5 speed,reliability. For motocross the RMZ is a more modern bike and it feel like that.

    Magnetic Oil Drain Plugs

    i don't think anybody does it. The oil plug on the RMZ is realy different from the other models, and because we are not a big crowd i don't think that somebody will do it. I have check for this magnet plug when i purchase the bike in September, and at the time nobody was doing it even Yoshimura , wich run hand in hand with Suzuki. But if somebody track it please let us know. I would realy like to have one. Its even more important on the Zook than on other model beacause the oil strainer are inside the case with no acess to clean them ( 05-06).I recheck and nor Dubach or Moose make it .

    05 to 07

    I have had this lower rod bearing issue with my 05 RMZ about 6 week ago. The problem seems to be a poor quality bearing,and not an oil starvation. The oil screen have lots of debrit in it ( bearings particules) but was not clog. From my odservation with my parts in my hands is. The bearing begin to desintagrate, the debrit are throw in the cylinder by the rotating crank,then the debrit are squiz beetween the piston and the cylinder witch cause the cylinder scratch. The result for me was. 1 crankshaft,1 piston kit, 2 complete oil pump and cover a gasket kit.I also change valve spring,cutter,valve retainer,cam chain,cam chain bender spring all preventive change.I also change the 4 gears on the ouput shaft because they have at some point +or- rounded dogs( abuse by the ex owner). I order a 06 crankshaft. They are exacly the same as 05 exept for the big end bearing.I will also put a 07 cam chain tensioner when i will be sure that they fit ( witch i'm pretty sure ). I have bought this bike used in September, and the bike was looking clean and well maintained. I realy love the bike. Its the best and easiest bike i have ride on a motocross track. I'm also pretty confident that with the 06 crank shaft in it + a brand new motor ( all new parts everywere) i will have a blast for a long time. I have race GSXR in roadracing for 15 years and never have a failure, so i have a good confidance in the Suzuki product.Some times it apens on a first year bikes. I have seen the guys who sold me the bike at the racetrack and i'm pretty sure now that the break in and maintenance of my RMZ have been haverage at best.
