    wont start / backfiring...?

    Have you lost any compression?

    wont start / backfiring...?

    I would start by checking the valves. Even with perfect jetting and a clean carb the bike will not start with tight valves. How many hours on the bike?

    Bought an 08 KX450F!

    I haven't got to ride mine that much, but I hope to put in some solid laps this sunday at Southwick for open practice. I can't wait!

    Don't forget pre-ride checks like greasing, tighten spokes, etc. Congrats on the new bike though! I just bought a used 08 with about 4 hours on it...I love it

    Guess what the dealer quoted me!

    That's a true story!

    I would definitely check at 20 hours too, but wouldn't think they needed an adjustment. That is a pretty steep price they charged you though.

    With only 20 hours on the bike im surprised the valves even needed adjustment:thinking:???

    GnarMachine...I've got an 07 for sale with an athena 290 kit if your interested! Check my garage for pics...The thing spotless, I'm only selling it to get a 450.

    temperature stickers!!!!!!

    Nice, thanks! What are the average temps your bikes run at? Ive got an athena 290 kit in mine and it seems to run a lot hotter than it did before.

    My new (to me) 450

    The virtues of the Hour Meter

    mxaaron...thanks for the pic. Is it worth is to buy the mount to mount the hour meter right on the gas tank or just mount it on the frame or something?

    The virtues of the Hour Meter
