    2019 KX450 chain tension

    The rule of thumb is place three fingers behind the chain slider on the swing arm in between the chain. Also when tightening the axle bolt place a screwdriver in the teeth of the sprocket between the chain and roll backwards which will cause the axle blocks to have pressure against the adjuster bolts then tighten the axle nut

    Rekluse clutch cover on 2019 ?

    I agree, take your cover to any reputable machine shop and they could machine an aluminum spacer as long as bolt holes and mounting edges are a perfect match. With the spacer and two gaskets it will work

    How to clean dirt stained engine?

    Use bar keepers friend and a tooth brush or similar brush it will remove everything except any physical pitting. Make sure not to get it on anything anodized or it will strip it.

    04 crf250 linkage help please....

    well i guess i put the horse before the carriage and should have done some research.... Never the less i should just by the bearings and relist the 08 linkage on ebay unless anyone can tell me that the 07 shock is superior to the 04? gonna have it revalved anyway......thanks everyone
  7. I bought a 2004 crf250 really cheap and it needs some work, it needed linkage bearings so I seen on ebay a full linkage setup with all the bearings and bolts and chain roller, it is brand new parts taken off a 08. I got all of it for the same price as what the bearings would have cost. I havent had time to try it on the bike yet but what i want to know is what years will the linkage cross reference? all help will be greatly appreciated !

    Aftermarket Suspension

    MCR suspension out of metamora Mich. he was travis pastranas tuner for freestyle and also was a pro racer himself.
  10. For one main reason your chain wore sooner on your 450f than on your 250f is that there is much more power and torque on them than a 250f. and for anyone that orders a chain without sprokets? shame on you thats your bad, if your so much into maintenance you would have never odered just a chain . By the sounds of it you are the average joe on maintenance.

    Most Dissappointing Product of 2006

    Just so eveyone knows I have experiance with different brands and models 93 Kx 250, 97 Kx 250, 2000 RM 125, 2002 yzf 250, 2004 YZ 250, 2006 RMZ 450and for me the biggest disappointment of the summer was after having 10hrs on my RMZ I had to let it go that thing was a pig through the bumps i never had a bike that handled that poorly, Transworld MX stated that the RMZ was a nightmare or a dream depending if you get it setup properly and i spent alot of time on the suspension and had suspensions shops mess with it and when we got it working 100 times better than stock it was still not very good . I was very disappointed i really wanted that bike to be the best .

    Race fuel??!! or try a 285 kit

    Here's the setup your lookin for. Get your head milled and run 50/50 race fuel, vforce reeds, Pro Circuit pipe and shorty silencer and power now combo blades and jet your carb for your weather and elevation. have fun!

    Ebc 280mm front brake kit

    No I don't believe the EBC is stainless and I did encounter one problem with it and it was that I had glazed over my pads and rotor from brake fluid gettting on them and I was told to use Meradic Acid on the rotor and it worked but than after that i had problems with it rusting but i juat painted the center of the rotor to stop rust and the outer portion was kept clean from riding and really never had a problem after that with rust . I highly recomend the EBC, good luck.

    Ebc 280mm front brake kit

    I have to agree on the EBC 280 mm rotor I had one on my RM and then I bought a Braking Oversized Wave Rotor for my YZ and I personally think that the EBC was much better and had better feel for darn near $75.00 cheaper price, and with the EBC I was in the garage with just shorts and sandals on (It was a nice day out ) after I put it on I figured I should test it out around the yard and needless say I had a green grass stain on my forhead as i lifted it back on the stand. lol oh well !

    RG3 vs Flexx bars

    I have a friend of mine that is a good intermediate rider that has severe arm pump problems and runs both RG3 4-way rubber mount and flexx bars and says there awesome and made a wold of difference. He even went the next step and had the arm pump surgerey and is 100% happy.
