Right on, Michael. Hope to see you out at Lincoln Trail one day soon! Tell Homeier I said hi. Hope he took it easy on you...

Rebate on the 2019 is $1500.

Unfortunately, it isn’t right around the corner from you, but unless it just got sold in the last day or two, Thompson’s Motorsports in Terre Haute, IN has a ‘19 in stock and wants it gone.

It’ll take some searching, but I know they’re out there. Where are you?

Reply to 2020 KX 450f otd pricing. 7/4/2020 5:21 AM

Look around for a 2019. Identical bike with a bigger rebate. They are still out there. My buddy just picked one up for $7k. And quit listening to the idiots that are saying to ask for a “cash price”. A dealer would prefer that you finance it. Trust me. ... more »

I been racing my KX all summer with no problem. Have you overheated your bike under race conditions, or are you trying to fix a problem you’ve never even had? Just because you got the bike too hot by idling on a stand doesn’t mean you have a problem. ... more »

I saw the Yamaha programs. It isn’t the dealer’s fault, necessarily. Yamaha pulled the rebates back in a big way in July. Supply and demand...

Yup. https://powersportsbusiness.com/top-stories/2020/06/30/you-wont-believe-mays-average-dealership-retail-growth/ The growth would be even more dramatic if you pulled out the Harley numbers, which are still dropping like a stone despite the industry growth.

Is Answer still owned by Tucker Rocky? If so, I think things have been a bit unstable over there for quite a while now.

I’m telling you. I’ve stood in the Yamaha factory in Hamamatsu and watched a little Japanese lady kick start bikes, put the rear wheel on a dyno wheel, hold the throttle wide open while shifting up through the gears. Unless things have changed, this ... more »

I was having problems with the bars twisting every time I laid the bike down in a corner. Then I bought the Ride Engineering bar clamp and it completely solved the problem.

Yeah, but he’s training with JS7 now, right? That means it’s Stewable...

Glad to hear it. Mine is coming via Amazon this week. I had to take my bars off to go two clicks stiffer this weekend 🤦🏼‍♂️

TM Designworks for sure. It isn’t just a Kawasaki problem. My last bike was a Honda and I had to go to a Slide and Guide kit with chain rollers on that bike as well.

My dad bought his first motocross bike at 72. 4 years later, he’s a local at Cahuilla Creek every Wednesday.

Does anyone know of a screwdriver that works to adjust fork compression damping with 1 1/8th bars when the bar clamps are in the forward holes? It is a PITA to have to remove the bars to adjust compression.

How many times you figure that salesman got stood up by someone who was “on their way down”. He even tried to call you back (likely to give you the chance to leave a deposit over the phone) and you didn’t take the call. Cash in hand wins in sales, and ... more »

I didn’t start until I was 18. I have raced fairly consistently ever since (I’m 46 now). In the meantime, I started a family. That just turned my race weekends into family camping trips. Suit yourself, but I’ve never found anything that replaces the ... more »

I have .53 fork springs in mine. Overall, I’m very happy with the suspension, but I would like more bottoming resistance. Is there any reason I can’t add 5ml of fork oil through the bleed screw with a syringe so I don’t need to take my forks apart to ... more »
