    2011 kx450f valve clearance HELP

    yep, 0.10-0.15... not 0.17
  2. Bernie Nottelling

    Cylinder head swap

    2006 to 2008 is same, from 09 onwards wont fit

    Value clearances kxf450 2014

    i'd shim it, next size in, turn engine over and check again. then run it for 5 to 10 hours and check again. if bigger, top of valve is damaged , time for a rebuild...

    Electrical issue

    probably just the capacitor thingy....

    Kxf450 2014 positioning rings on cam caps

    probably a specialist video.... they are both the same, not moving, just sitting in a slot...

    Kxf450 2014 positioning rings on cam caps

    just put them in, doesn't matter if mixed up, they are just locaters...

    Take a look at this!

    so how did you go with that "extreme worn" piston ?
  8. Bernie Nottelling

    14-15 Piston differance?

    they changed the piston "design" for the 15 model.. and then went back to old piston... probably not as good ..otherwise they wouldn't have gone back...

    14-15 Piston differance?

    probably different compression ratio...

    Take a look at this!

    where at the piston did you measure the 95.6mm ?
  11. Bernie Nottelling

    Take a look at this!

    where can you see the rings which look undersize ???? and every piston is bike/engine and model year specific the piston top is always way smaller in diameter, cos it gets friggin hot and expands most...

    Take a look at this!

    if oil comes up into the head, that's a sign of piston rings upside down mounted... get a set of new rings, and you'll be fine...or if piston got over 100 hours..get a new one..

    Take a look at this!

    i'd be more concerned about the exhaust valves hitting the piston....
  14. Bernie Nottelling

    Just bought a 2012

    exhaust is fine... squealing noise, probably from the clutch pushrod, there are a few models that make a funny noise..there is a kinda solution, but not sure if it works for every bike..search in here and you'll find it...

    Rekluse clutch cover on 2019 ?

    maybe boyesen do covers for the 19 ? otherwise, get a spacer machined and use longer bolts and 2 gaskets, probably cheaper than a new cover either from recluse or boyesen.
