Its interesting what you say about the Keefer settings being the stock white coupler's settings. I know you can manipulate the 19's settings using the 16 baseline but my question was; are the baselines the same? So if you added 1 degree ignition advance, ... more »

Kawi has an updated EFI setup that includes the 17-19 KXs. You download the file on to the memory card that comes with the tuner. It tells you to erase everything thats on the card now but I discovered you have to re-download the base info from the tuners ... more »

I doubt it. Kinda kills the desire to ride in the mud though, on any bike. Cleanup is a bitch

Added reply in a thread 19 Kaw 450 price? In a pickle 9/27/2018 12:04 AM

A dealer would have to buy way more than 5 bikes to get anything free. Like 50- 100. And even then probably not free but greatly reduced like a Team Green deal. The dealership that Pummel works for (not 100% sure but I'd bet money on it) gets 6 demos ... more »

I sold bikes for 20 years and yes, they operate on a 10-15% margin with a 2-5% dealer holdback. Frankly I cannot believe that a dealer is selling one for 8300, 8400. Maybe before a high freight and setup but no way OTD and doubtful at a base price before ... more »

I wondered what happened. At least I got to see the 2nd 450 moto. Last year the NBC stream quality sucked, wouldn't play about half of the nationals. This year it has been money. It made me a complete heretic and stay home from the Washougal national

Hey, great write up. Of course since I have a 19 Kawi, I'm crushed it didn't get picked 1st by everyone. Ah what do they know? But seriously, 2 things...1st suspension....everyone keeps running these low sag numbers and it seems that the lighter the ... more »

No, I think they were the same. And I agree about the 12 motor. I put 12 cams in my 13 and it snorted. But the 19 feels lighter, clutch is like butter and I'm pretty sure once its broken in its gonna be a runner. Now I just have to get my fat ass in ... more »

Stronger and smoother. Going to run the white coupler this week, hoping for a little arm streching

Ok, power is stronger than my 17 but I have about an hour on it and wasn't hammering it. But I could tell it revved quicker and harder. That was on the stock coupler. Turns on a dime. Stock tires are not the hot setup for where I was riding but dropping ... more »

Picked mine up Saturday, broke it in Sunday. As the OP said, if I can get past my arm pump.......but this thing is awesome. Have a 17, this is better. Turns better, feels lighter, suspension really good right out of the box. Maybe a little soft for my

The last comment is very true, especially concerning some OE top triple clamps. On my Hondas and my current Kawi, if I grease the bolts, the top clamp will continue to compress till the gap is completely closed. Doesn't have this problem with the lower ... more »

Wow, bummer dude. I skimmed through all of the posts to see if the main complication from a broken Talus was addressed. I didn't see it but you just mentioned it; the foot dying. When I broke mine in 1999 casing a double (didn't crash either) they of ... more »

The 09 - 12 450 forks will bolt right on. I had a 13 and ran 2010 forks. Which I still have by the way. hint hint. Also as another poster said, the 10-14 250F forks will bolt right up. The 13 - 14 forks are superior though. I personally think the 13-14 ... more »
