If you look at the parts diagrams of 18 vs 19, they share the same bolt pattern so I'd assume yes. This is my first Kawi though so I can only go off of that.

I feel like the surgeon(s) deserve some praise too, heck of a job getting him this far considering the damage. Impressive. As far as racing again, while it would be great to see, I'd rather he be safe at this point.

You are a man with a plan! Sounds like you and your wife have a very cheeky relationship with finances and I love that. Same here. It's serious but not life or death, and there's some wiggle room for everyone. I'd just buy a 450 and if you hate it, sell ... more »

I'm glad I asked because I'm also seeing a clutch slave guard that I can't seem to find, and I'm worried about a chain snap causing issues there. What is that? Looks like Rekluse but I don't see it on their site. I might be "challenged".

What's that look like? Is the +XXmm optional with a single unit or do you have to decide before you buy it?

I have been a YZ 2 stroke guy for the last few years, so I wanted the YZ450F to be the bike I'd prefer. But after trying the 17, it was so fat/thick in the middle (where you grip with your knees) and heavy feeling compared to my YZ250, I knew I couldn't ... more »

Gaerne's are so tall in the toebox too. That's why I stopped wearing them, almost had to lift my entire leg to shift at times.

Nice bike is right, I'd be afraid to get it dirty! I just cartwheeled mine after casing a big uphill double last weekend

Interested to hear what you think about the header, and if you are going to try the slip-on with the insert both in and out. I have the same Ti system (except I have the non-anodized muffler, didn't want the blue). I felt a pretty big difference with ... more »

Have you ridden it yet with the FMF exhaust?

The guy that reviewed the components on Keefer's site wasn't even Keefer. It's just feedback, everyone is going to have their own opinion of how things work...that's why we try it out.

The Keefer Inc report on the 21.5 vs 22 Ride clamps tells me you'll probably prefer 23. Works good as stock and looks trick AF. What's the downside?

Stock clamps are 23mm, so I'm guessing you are just gonna go with that option if you think it's already too much bite. I agree that the stock clamps turn very well, but I'm coming from a YZ250 that turns like sh*t in comparison, and I'm wondering if ... more »

Got mine and I imagine most of the dudes waiting for theirs got it today too.

But....I won't be able to try it until after this weekend. Has anyone in this thread given feedback on the link yet? I've also got the 22mm (not the original 21.5mm) ... more »

I came back to riding 3 years ago at 41, after not racing/riding since high school. Of course back then moto was all 2 strokes, so I went with what I knew and got a YZ125 to play with, and then a YZ250 to race once I got comfortable again. I added a ... more »

Yeah, 14 is the correct stock setting. The owners manual has it wrong at 5 in that one spot. The actual service manual says 14.

Looks so good. But there is that green airbox issue that I hope some aftermarket company comes in to fix. I feel like this airbox move was a way for Kawi to make it very difficult to get away from green, and it's lame.
