Reply to Suspension Theory 4/28/2020 8:29 AM

As an extuner, I can tell you that most of the info these guys are throwing out is good. But even if you have the mechanical know how, books on theory, etc, the biggest thing to do to be successful is testing. And as someone mentioned, you do have to ... more »

I know this thread is a year and a half old but now left over 19s range from 6500 to 6850 OTD. I just bought a 2020 for 7498 OTD. And I bought in Oregon so no sales tax

Reply to Any opinions on a 95 RM 250 8/20/2019 5:17 AM

I rode RMs from 89 through 98 with only a 93 CR250 and a 94 YZ250 mixed in. The 89 - 95s were all great. I sold my 93 because everyone said the CR was so much better. They were so wrong. My 95 had Guy Coopers Penske shock he ran at the Washougal national. ... more »

Sorry, I didn't see this. Its ok,nothing to rave about, nothing to complain about. It feels heavy. They do have terrific customer service, replacing the mount for free

Reply to Store for Showa Like Technical Touch is for KYB? 2/5/2019 10:50 AM

They make it steer better for sure but made them a bit harsher. Ride Engineering made a similar comment on their website. But easy enough to fix

I know this is way late in the game for this post but I was waitng to get all things together and then life happened and got completely sidetracked. So for whoever is interested, here are a couple of picks of my KX450. Also are some pics of the subframe

Reply to Factory riders and "tweaking" their Bikes 12/4/2018 9:14 PM

You also have to factor in the ego factor. Sometimes when a factory deems their part or spec to be the best, even if its not, they don't want to be challenged by a "lesser" person on the team. They don't want to be shown up by a mere mechanic who comes ... more »

Thanks, I'm kinda proud of myself on that spot. I got my subframe back and the dude did a great job. This sucker ain't breaking off. But I think i discovered one of the main reasons these tabs are breaking off......they are welded at the wrong angle,

Is this an older ECU tuner? I have one from 2016 and it has this but what I found on Kawis website for a mount was a lock clip that tapes to the frame somewhere. But I didn't want to take the seat off every time I wanted to mess with so I mounted down

Reply to Bad news on Alta 10/18/2018 9:58 AM

Its funny you mention this. The first time I rode one I was putting in quite a few laps in one session and I could hear my breathing over anything noise the bike was putting out, except the tires running on the ground. And I may have skipped someone ... more »

I have heard guys running 370cc. Still have about 25cc or so to go till maximum. I was a bit shocked when I saw it was down at 310 stock

Reply to Let's see/review those 2019 kx450s 10/15/2018 1:08 PM

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
