No theyre not close. Need cut and rewelded

Added reply in a thread KX250F swap to 450 engine 4/6/2020 10:07 AM

Added reply in a thread Grease/Loctite bolts on assembly 4/6/2020 8:15 AM

That makes sense. Leads me to another question, what about bolts that have been reused over and over? That coating wears off. You either need to buy an entire new set of hardware for your bike or put a coating on. Manual doesnt say replace every bolt. ... more »

My 450 doesnt have the coupler feature. The power is smooth enough, just dont need the stick in the ass torque

The namura piston is probably the problem. Chinese junk right there.
