Mike Lafferty did the same thing when KTM went away from the 400 and went to a 450. He was riding a sleeved down bike. His opinion was the 400 was the perfect size for him. When he rode the one year on Husaberg, he was reportedly riding their 390 instead ... more »

I see that. Phil's wasn't. I assume there is some type of additional support from IG for verified users?

2017 X Trainer, 2018 300 (regular version with sachs), 2020 300RR. The X trainer shorted something out while on the trail cooking the battery. The 2018 chafed the harness raw in numerous places causing the bike to short out. the 2020 CDI fried. I suspect ... more »

Yes, Beta is offering a 390, and Husaberg offered one in their 70* engine some years back. I have rode the Husaberg 390 and it wasn't bad. I have only rode 2 stroke Beta's and I won't be buying one. I'm sure it is a decent bike but the 3 people near ... more »

Are you sure? Phil Smage's account was taken and he didn't get it back for at least a year. Not saying you're wrong, just looking for more information on how it all would go down.

I keep wishing a company would release a kit like RedMoto's 400RX for my KX450X. I have both, a KX250X and KX450X, and I'd like more than the 250 gives me, but the 450 is too much in the tight enduros.

You're correct.

I gave a middle finger emoji to them and plastered a bunch of american flag emojis on there.. It was funny to see all the comments that I cannot read... They (Kawasaki) got it back already. I assume they paid the ransom.

I am on the fence as to whether I keep my 450 but if I do, I may try a Rekluse. I usually poo-poo the idea on my previous bikes which were all 2 strokes, but the 450 might benefit from one and allow me to ride in 3rd, in the tighter woods where the power ... more »

I have 52 hours of woods racing on my stock clutch. In regards to the information above, I had been told by my local shop that the Kaw is very specific on the clutch pack "thickness" or length as stated above. After talking to Steward Baylor late last ... more »

Becca Sheets. She is a Yamaha Racer and multi time GNCC Womens race winner. She definitely hauls. I race Enduros primarily and one of the other WXC racers, Mackenzie Tricker, will usually beat me in sections at the NEPG races by a couple minutes each ... more »

I was at the race. TP was in it for a long time but near the end, he ran out of gas. Sipes was just walking away from all of them though. He passed most of the WXC field but Becca Sheets was hauling and he wasn't able to get to her.

I'm going to drain mine tonight and measure the amount I get out. I typically will run the bike easily around the yard a couple minutes to warm it up and then drain. I have some extra filters as well so I may do a full oil/filter change and try to measure ... more »

Thanks. Any insight as to why, when following the manual specifically, the oil barely reads on the sight glass?

I ordered my Slip-On through Rehmerts Kawasaki in Versailles OH. It took about 2 weeks but I got it! I will add a little more oil to see if that brings it up to the level I'd like to see in the glass. I'd like to get out and give it a good ride soon. ... more »

I am bailing off a KX450X for a KX250X for now and just got my suspension back, and a PC T-6 slip on installed. Looking forward to getting out on it this week. The clutch problems I am reading about are concerning. Also, anyone measuring the exact amount ... more »

Broke the subframe / muffler mount on my 21X 450X yesterday. Right at 50 hours on the bike. I am getting close to moving on from the 450 to either ride the 250 I have or go back to a 2 stroke for the tight enduros I ride. This bike would be awesome at
