  1. Just bought a 2014 really low hours from my neighbor, so I know the history of the bike and has less than 15 hrs on it and going through the bike to get it fitted to my liking. You are missing out. Its not over kill like the SCOTTS....but if you have never ridden with one you dont know what you are missing. Once you revalve it and get it adjusted you have now idea of the difference it makes on a MX track. Thinking that I can buy the ride engineering frame mount, move the FCU and then have the Pro Circuit clamps drilled and tapped to mount the lower. Ill post pics when done
  2. Looking for info on mounting a Honda HSPD on the KX450f? I know that Ride Engineering had clamps and a mount that will allow for this. Looking for anyone that has actually done this? I came over from the CRF camp and really miss having the HSPD.. Images?
  3. Question? You said that you to the head to a machine shop? I am assuming that they followed specs for the head? How did they grind the seat? What are your clearances looking like on all valves?(current spec?) You have an images of the cases? In all honesty, get new cases off eBay! If my memory servers me correct check the carb and all the jets ***Check the slide plate is not on backwards (this will cause some odd issues with idle and running)
  4. Ya like I said this was a local suspension hack that did this...They reason I say that they are aluminium is that the LSV was anodized red. Wish I took a pic
  5. Thanks for the response, the post was changes to an anodized Red Aluminium post with 6 bleeds. I just was not able to find my OEM stack sheets from other 2016's that I have re-valved in the past. PC crashed a few months back and I lost majority of my 8 yrs of valve stacks some 500+ re-valves But after remembering that I backed everything up on Mega I was able to recover them. I prefer to have the ability to tune the LSV...not sure why on some Showa's that they do not use this. All my A-Kits use the LSV with the ability to swap for different flows. The LSV stack is great for being able to tune to add a more firm progressive feel to the forks and get rid of mushiness and stop it from dropping into the mid stroke to fast. At the same time great for real light riders to help it transition into the mid-stroke -theDogger
  6. Issue resolved...the OEM Base Valve does not have a LSV bleed. This suspension hack changed out the OEM Stem. So have to come up with a LSV stack then...

  11. Gold valves. You must be a trail rider....I have 4 coffee cans full of those door stoppers from a local suspension hack.
  12. Dont bother with the needle setup. Dont buy a special tool. Replace it with an after market. PC, FC, SDI all sell a large volume cap that has a schrader valve Factory Connection Works Bladder Cap BCK52BRN-01 While your at it buy a HSC spring and replace the OEM one HSC HSSK04 That needle cap was just a way for Kawasaki to save $$$$$$ -theDogger
  13. Is there a chart out there that references the PSI to KG or Nm in a matrix? So I know that 2 psi change is equal to a spring rate? But what I dont know is a base line number to start with? Is there a calculation for this? So something like this? Spring Wt: (kg) 0.47 0.48 0.49 0.50 0.51 0.52 0.53 0.54 PSI 36 38 40 42 44 46 48 50 ????
  14. Whats up everyone....sorry that I have been MIA for a while. I kinda got away from the sport. Life takes you in direction you never thought possible. I sold my CRF450 3 yrs ago and have not ridden since and I am regretting it ever minute. I sold it because I just did not have time to ride anymore. My summers became consumed with My daughter Travel B-Ball but paid-off as she is now a Soph. at U of Hawaii. Now my youngest daughter who will be a soph. in H.S. is on the same path. Along the way I started getting into making Guitar Cabs. Don't ask how or why...its a long story. You can check out my work here BFG Cabs Having said all this the dirt bug has bitten me once again and I am getting back into the mix. So hope that I can get this thread running again and start gather more useful information. -theDogger
  15. skorpan777 the problem with the KYB is that they have now balance chamber and were a half-baked product that should have never been released I have worked on suspension for 6 years and never had so much trouble getting a forks to work for lighter riders. They are not that bad for heavy riders...200 lbs + For the lighter rider they either worked great int he small chop but blew threw the stroke on bigger hits...you fix that and then the chop beat them up... Like i said back to spring Factory Kit will fix the problem!
