  1. Beautiful stuff, I'll give that a go on the weekend. Hope nothing breaks
  2. Gday people, Whats the deal???? Is there a trick to removing the 2 oil screens on 03 450exc's. I have just recently purchased this bike and wanted to change the oil and filters, but the 13mm bolt for the long SS screen and the hex key bolt for the oil screen underneath will not budge. After applying allot of force (anticlockwise) the stupid bloody things wont come loose. It seems like the previous owner has used super strong locktight to keep them snug. Has anyone had this problem and are there any tricks to loosen these bastards without stripping or shearing the bolt heads heads?? At the end of the day, I replaced the 2 long and short paper filters and obviously the oil, but left the 2 screens until I gathered a little advise. Advise would be much appreciated!! Thanks.

    Modding a 450exc 03

    Beauti!! Thanks guys. Might have to spend a few dollars this weekend!! Thanks agian for your help!!
  5. Gday Gents, I've had my 450 for a few months now and as I'm still quite new to the game, advise would go down a treat. my 450 has got balls don't get me wrong, but I wouldn't mind an extra horse or 2. I've browsed over recent threads and jetting will be a good start. What about the exhaust? What do I need to remove and what would the difference be? (Not much I would imagine) Advise would be much appreciated. P.S. I live in Australia and ride at around sea level
