Yeah they're supposed to last, about 15 minutes right? Dude,sorry to waste your time, how should I expect them to hold up longer. Excuse my ignorance

Yeah does it? He is riding a YZ 250 if that has anything to do with it. Man I cannot believe it, his previous boots were Astars Tech 7, and after 30 hours they didn't even have any marks like this.

Hi guys, my brother just bought a pair of Gaerne SG12 and on his second ride they look like this.

Anyone can relate to this premature wear? We are pretty disappointed, as everyone seem to love the durability of the SG12. ... more »

Yeah the 2012 is one of the best bikes I've ever ridden

Added reply in a thread Shock upper bolt cracked 4/20/2018 3:55 PM

Yeah I think that was the cause. I absolutely love this bike, but was a bit worried about all the negative comments from my friends at the track. After all, I shouldn't have listened to them in the first place!

Okay guys here are the pics. My guess is that the previous owner didn't aligned the bolt. This is because the frame have a mark on the flat side where the bolt makes contact with it. So this guy might have tightened it anyway,marking the frame and maybe

I don't have right now, as I'm getting another one machined(only temporary until I get the replacement part). I will upload a pic as soon as I get it back.

It was easy as the bolt broke off right behind the head so I used a screw driver to push it out and then unthreaded the nut. I have broken some bolts, but only small ones, and when I did they broke in the middle of the threads, this is strange to me! ... more »

Yes I also was speechless. I guess that maybe it was stretched from the previous owner as another member noted. Let's just hope it doesn't happen again!

Thank you!

I have already replaced the cases, crank, cylinder etc on this bike. My question is if Kawasaki's are prone to this failures or if all of it was bad luck. I LOVE this bike but every guy at the track tells me that they are poorly built!

Hi guys, I have a 2012 KXF 450 and the upper shock bolt cracked while I was tightening it (using a properly set torque wrench at 29 ft/lbs as the manual says). I am having one machined, but do I need to buy the original one as the replica part will be ... more »
