I like the stock clutch cover for the fact it has the sight glass, I have had the boyesen before and taking the screw in and out it seems like it always leaked small amounts of oil on me. Going to run these for a bit and see what happens.

It had a hot rod crank in it, I wanted that out of there so he put an oem crank in it for me and worked his magic on the cases, not bored or stroked. He used some of his techniques he learned back in the day, I got to see what he did went I stopped down ... more »

Thanks! Sanner dipped the inner case in acid, I debated it but I like it, I'm extremely happy with the results. I want the bronze color engine covers but dont want the big boyesen lettered covers either, thats a good idea you have, not sure I have that ... more »

Ignition cover is painted with automotive wheel paint, I know it wont last, I havent been able to find what I want yet for covers.

PR2 linkage for rear shock, it's guaranteed to make em pick up a couple seconds a lap on your favorite track, look it up.

I wish the 250/450 were identical with just different engines.

I use for savers so no twisting of forks, never had that issue ever, if you do your probably strapping too tight, the tires just push on each other and hold there perfectly. I have plenty of clearance. Load up in the driveway and get a feel for it, its ... more »

Exactly, I didnt have a pic like that from my bikes but yes that is my favorite way to load em up. Lots of room, bikes are stable and can close tailgate.

Reply to Loading two bikes 5/19/2016 8:36 AM

Hard to tell with pic, if you have 6.5' bed put both bikes in with wheels turned and touching in the center, kick the back ends out towards sides of bed, this means you can close tailgate, dont have to worry about any gear coming out and have the whole

I had mine revalved by PR2 on my KX and I love them, they are awesome, I have no complaints. I tinker with the air pressures and I found a setting I like now an they are workin great for me.

So as far as I can tell the 17 450F only change from 16 is some triple clamps and new tuning?

I think my shock may be a newer one than yours, not positive tho, I'm no expert on this stuff, I know if I case a jump it soaks it up rather nicely haha. I'm sure PR2 will help me dial it in, he revalved it to suit the 125 I know that, Shane never lets

Looking good! Looks like our bikes will be similar with the a-kit, have you ever rode the a-kit? Stuff I have on my 125 is amazing, only ever rode it on a 250f but its awesome stuff. Sanner is about done with my motor, I'm getting antsy, I have a new ... more »

Pretty cool, back in 2002 when Steel City was the last national they were trying to sell these bikes I think for $6,000 +/- $1000, my friend tried to buy one, took some time to think about it and when we went to the hotel where the team rig was the team ... more »

Reply to FMF or PC??? 2016 kx450 5/18/2016 4:34 AM

I put the PC T-6 stainless on mine, only one ride on it so far but I like it better than stock, also it doesn't pop as much on deacceleration.

Its cheaper to get them at the track, online they charge a processing fee, none of that at the track since they can hide some of that cash
