  1. had one on all of our bikes. 06 kx 450 also. my son pull's holeshot after holeshot indoors and out. maybe he is just a good starter but he said it does not whellie as much. as for cost thats something you will have to decide. for him he thinks its well worth the price but then again he didnt buy it.
  2. I KNOW THIS MAY OPEN UP A CAN OF WORMS BUT HOW HAVE YA'LL FOUND IS THE BEST WAY TO PUT ON SHROUD GRAPHICS. ON THE BIKE OR OFF? WET OR DRY? OUR NEW GRAPHICS CAME FROM ONE INDUSTRIES. SINCE THEY ARE TWO PIECES AND ARE SMALLER I HOPE WILL BE EASY. LAST ONES TOOK FOREVER BUT THEY LOOKED GOOD.
  3. DID ert 520 is the only chain we run. i'm sure there are other good chains but we have had such good luck with the 520 gold.
  4. if anybody on these pages are getting all the 450 will do and all that is left is too drop a few pounds to get more ,then all i can say is YOU ARE THE MAN!!!!
  5. Goodman, we are running and indoor series now and have been checked for sound, twice. both times we were o.k. when i asked my son what the reading was he said he forgot to ask. i said next time please ask so i would know!! he rides a 06 kx450f stock.
  6. i have read on here about all the different oils people use. what i want to know is it o.k. after i have used kawachem 20-50 in our 06 is it o.k. to switch to another oil. valvoline vr1 20-50. already changed piston and pin once. piston looked good but pin was gauled some. since new piston change we have about 10-12 hours on bike. will it hurt to change oil after we have ran the bike this long on new piston. i know this will be just your opinion, but hey i asked!!!
  7. matt i think they look great. i like the red that is why i put a red top triple clamp own my sons 06 450. post pics once on the bike.
  8. we have been running a very cheap tire called a Sukura dirt shark. it lasts very good and hooks up great. still like to run a starcross on the front though.
  9. checked oil screen for the second time on my sons 06 and it was pretty clean compared to the first time. i'll check it every 10 or 15 hrs since it is so easy to do. if you have one of these bikes then please do it. what have you got to lose but 15 min. and maybe a motor if you don't!!!
  10. No Problems with simple green here. Only stuff i have used for 7 years. purple power works also but simple green is better. IMO!!
  11. i didnot see a yellow flag wave untill preston hit bubba. he's lucky preston didn't land on his head.in a case like that you have got to look before you pull back out on the track. i don't think bubba really wanted any of preston. he a pretty big guy. he just threw his arm out like that because his people were around him.P.S. where was BIG JAMES.
  12. i also use hiflo oil filters, at my local dealer we looked at a stock filter, k&n, and the hiflo and we saw no difference except the color of paper. run hiflo for 10 months now with no problems. i change oil and filter every other ride. filter is under $3. that's cheap insurance!! what ever you do make sure you change your oil. it cannot be said enough!!!
  13. MOTO2MAN, we went back stock in the middle of November. so far so good. i will admit i am still a little afraid i made the wrong choice but my friend who work,s for kawa said they fixed the problem. our piston looked good but our pin was gaulded up some. glad i changed it. we have raced a fri and sat indoors and the bike ran great. it does seem a little faster for some reason though.my son pulled holeshot after holeshot. we will race again Dec 8-9. for peace of mind i will tear down and inspect after the indoor season is over in middle of Feb.
  14. we put the #55 in our bike also. still bog's some but not as bad. some people change the main as well but this would not solve the problem would it?
  15. how do they check your bike. at a certain rpm or what
