  1. Had 2008 KXF450 for 3 days now. I turned 50 yrs old in June, have been racing mx 39 yrs. Own a local engine & suspension tuning co. Very sensitive rider, I ride light on a bike (Finesse rider). +40 +45 Ga. state champ. 2006-2007 Can’t post the price. My Evaluation 1.Light & crispy turning at all speeds. leaves jump faces and fly’s with a light feeling. 2.LOTS OF RAW TORQUE!!! (BAM) 3.FMF 4.1 smoothes her out and helps her out pull long. (only pipe I had to test with) 4. Shifts noticeably better. 5. Smoother suspension than last 2 years with firm midstroke reduces bottoming. (a little too firm for the old guy) i prefer a more compliant dancing partner. Installing new valving and -10lbs. of Ti parts today and testing. Should be no problem to make this a wonderful bike in all categories. Thanks Kawasaki for not going the wrong direction for 2008...I have seen it done in the past. Kevin B.

  3. What a bunch of loosers...that's general public for ya. The guy has a very good question.
  4. Did you get the whole linkage assy. pull rod and rocker? Or are they selling just the pull rod only. Looks like JBS has the whole assy. I called and talked to 2 people and got 2 different answers. Kevin B. way down south in the land of dixie.....georgia
  5. I'm confused now.... Muzzy's Info. Advancing the intake and retarding the exhaust (“closing up the centers”) increases overlap and should move the power up in the RPM range, usually at the sacrifice of bottom end power. The result would be lower numerical values on both intake and exhaust lobe centers. Retarding the intake and advancing the exhaust (“spreading the centers”) decreases overlap and should result in a wider power band at the sacrifice of some top end power. Web Cam's Info You may move the cam to the desired lobe center and check again. If you move the lobe centers closer together, it would normally give you more low to mid range. If you move the lobe centers apart, it would normally give you more mid to top range. Not all engines can handle tight lobe centers. Certain applications require wider lobe centers, such as stock fuel injected engines or blown If you didn't know for sure who would you beleive????
