That's funny. You're the first person I've heard call a Kawi quiet. lol They've been like this for years. Sound like they need repacked. But either way I like the FMF.

I had an FMF on my 19 KX 450 (see profile pic on the left) and no issues, but a friends frame broke with one on it. Didn't happen to all of them. I'm hoping my 21 is beefed up a bit.

Finally got to spin some laps on mine yesterday. Coming off a 19 KX 450. As expected the suspension was stiff but was getting better all day. I'll be sending it off to FC over the winter since I weigh 152 and need lighter springs. They did my 450 and

I get full coverage thru Indiana Farm Bureau insurance. Be aware wth fire and theft, if you have your bike in the bed of a truck or in your trailer and you have a wreck, it's not covered under your vehicle insurance.

My buddy has one on his 21 KX 450 and loves it. He used it at a race last weekend and said it worked great.

Other than Forkner I'm not impressed with the team. And I'm a Kawi guy. I really thought they would make a bigger splash. Hope I'm wrong.

Yeah it's crazy. One dealer in SW Indiana is trying to get $9999. out of a 21 KX 250. Seems insane to me, but who knows.

Added reply in a thread Where should I go to live/ride over the winter? 10/15/2020 7:00 PM

Imo I would go to Florida. Lots of tracks, trails and beaches. If you don't need to live right on the coast and go inland a bit, the cost of living is very reasonable. We're a couple years away from retirement and plan on spending winters there. We were ... more »

That is the proper position. But as I said, it has nothing to do with permature wear. Most riders don't ride like that and don't have issues with soles wearing out too fast. It seems to be a problem with AS most often on this forum. Obvouisly the OP ... more »

It does seem like more than a few people have wear issues with AS. You very rarely hear about issues with Gaerne or Sidi. Mostly AS. Foot positioning shouldn't matter. Either a boot wears well or it doesn't. I've worn SG 10's for years and have yet to ... more »

That's odd on the pump gas. Lots of FI Kawi's in our group. We all run 93 pump gas and have for years. No issues.

I just got my 21 250 Friday. Put my ARC levers on from my 19 KX 450. Waiting on graphics and I need to grease it. Ergo's are awesome. I'll be buying an FMF slip on as soon as they're available. Like all Kawi's, it's annoyingly loud and sounds like it ... more »

Well said. Not all deaers are inflating the prices. But those dealers aren't giving them away either. Which is the norm selling mx bikes. It's a welcome change that dealers are finally able to make some money on mx bikes. Profit isn't dirty word. That ... more »

Good info. I just bought a 21 KX 250 from my brother but I race very little. My buddy just bought a 21 KX 450. He races quite a bit and should do this. My brother is a team green dealer. Thanks for the info.

Just because they have bikes doesn't mean a thing here and in many other areas. I just picked up my new 21 KX 250 from my brothers dealership (only one hes gotten). He's one of the biggest Polaris dealers in Indiana as well. They have no SxS's in stock ... more »

My brother is Kawasaki Team green dealer. So far he's got these 2021's: 1 KX 450xc, sold the next day. 1 KX 450, sold to my buddy in a week and 1 KX 250, came in Monday and I bought it today. (Sold my 19 KX 450 today so I could go back to a 250.) He ... more »

Exactly. You can't buy an ev and drive from Indiana to Florida in a day like you can now. Range is the issue and will be for a while. Even though they've improved the range on them, they still have limits. Electric bikes have the same issue. Some of ... more »
