Kawis are crap. Raced one in 08 and had more DNFs than the rest of my racing career. Good overall package but the quality of the parts is just behind everyone else and slightly above a PEP Boys ATV. Radiator were made of butter, the alum casting were ... more »

NETRA is a great off-road organization. I've been apart of it for the last 20+ years. Early years as a racer and later years more on the administration side but racing vintage the last 5 years. You could join now or everything can be done at a race if ... more »

Nice bike for sure. If your into the woods racing check out the NETRA vintage series. We have 11 races this year and it's a minimum of 1 hour of riding on Sundays after the kids events. Abilities range from C riders to some AAs depending on the class. ... more »

I got my 98 back from my college roommate I sold it to in 01. I'm in process of gathering parts and soon I'll crack into the motor they did for me in 99. Still looking for a Noleen pipe for it since the one I had on it got smashed woods racing.

The XCW is a different motor than the XCF/SXF. It was a dual sump and a POS. Many of those grenaded when all the oil went from the pressure sump to the transmission sump and starved the crank/cam/head. These motors were fairly good for power and durability, ... more »

The 07-12 SXF is the same motor as the 08-09 XCF just the XCF got a 5 speed transmission so the vertex piston will work. Does the vertex come in difference sizes? Typically you can get the right class of piston (measured to the .0001") for it, to do ... more »

It's definitely got some time on it from the pictures. Never ball hone a nickesil cylinder. Scotch brite in a soapy water bath and worst case a nylon brush in a power drill. Even a 20% muratic acid solution works to remove the aluminum deposited in the ... more »

I'm a cast piston person. IMO forged is for full moto with a short duration between teardowns. Cast tend to last longer and the machinist can keep the bore a little tighter. All the vintage air cooled bikes I've had to use Wiseco pistons due to availability ... more »

That doesn't striker me as odd. The 08/09 XCFs were a model that didn't catch on. Basically the SX-F motor with 5 speed, 18" rear wheel and more XC/GNCC setup suspension. Everyone was buying the 450 XC-W and EXC which those motors turned out to be big

I still have my 09 KTM 450 XC-F that I bought new in 09. Raced it from 09-11 and street plated it to race some enduros here in the north east for the 2012/13 season. Great forks with the TC bladder forks and the revised PDS in the 09+ chassis was a ton ... more »

4XL10 is a 98 cylinder. I'd buy the eBay cylinder and find a used reed valve and intake boot and go from there. That will be cheaper than fixing that 98 cylinder.
