I thougt so by the looks of it, only confusing with the team poster writing bud kawasaki, but probably same logo for the whole team including the bigger actal kawis.

Thanks for the feedback. I was thinking that too about to rich, both the carbon buildup and the darkbrown almost black tip of the plug indicate rather to rich than to lean. However typical answer when i ask (also to friends at track) is change to bigger ... more »

So I check my notes and piston is 20h, not 10 so I took it out yesterday. Whats your thought about the plug? Some tips above was to use larger jets. Is the plug also telling that? (As I see its darkbrow/almost black)

And Piston ring clearly ... more »

Nice! Must have been more power on those old kx:s to pull such Andrew Short starts

Cant test anything this weekend becasue we will be in Uddevalla to watch the MXGP racing. Will be nice for sure.

Yes, more clutch sensivity is most likely the key in this matter.

I was so sure it was the bike that I did not fully take rider factor into the equation. He thinks and I observe that it looks like he does similar starts and after 3-4 bikes start to bog, Neither the -14 kx nor the earlier KTMSX65 -13 acted like this...

I dont think I will change front sprocket, maybe add 1 tooth to the back, at the most. actualy on sandy tracks you can drop 1 to run longer on the same gear thru the whole berm not needing to put in the next one in the corner so to speak, I think my ... more »
