so how does this work, do you surrender your old title with the frame and they give you a new title with the new frame? Or is the vin bare and they restamp it with the vin you already have?

I thought they used the mousse insert deal. Well I thought I heard Emig babbling about it during a race one time anyway.

So, I gotta ask, where did you hear this from? Whoever told you may want to let the manufacturers know this as all of them besides honda stick a nut on there and leave it there. It is tightened down to by the way. I have a buddy that I ride with that ... more »

I haven't changed a thing on the forks on my 16 kx450, I think they work great for me at 175# and those settings. I had a 15 crf250, those were ok, but not as good as kawi's this year.

Added reply in a thread fatbars or twinwalls? 11/13/2015 4:09 AM

Another thing to consider with twinwalls is with all these electronic gizmos they keep putting on the handlebars now, there isn't enough room on twinwalls for them to fit. On my kx450 with the launch control installed where it should be the clutch lever ... more »

Bull, these kids now are way faster at an earlier age than we were in the 90's. It amazes me sometimes what I see kids on 50's and 65's doing now.

Added reply in a thread 2016 KX450 Anybody got one? 11/10/2015 3:24 PM

Yeah, mine pops not so bad with the black coupler, but you have to clutch it coming out of soft corners with that one, the green has a little more pop, the white is ridiculous with the popping. This was with T4, I don't know if pump gas would be any ... more »

Had one on it, and it helped but occasionally it would still do it.

Yeah, that is a bad habit I picked up from the crf flameout. Nothing like a bike just sputtering out to slow your roll.

Added reply in a thread 2016 450 Shootout Is Up! 10/31/2015 8:49 PM

so the '15 had less engine braking? it's been awhile since I have been on kawi's and from what I remember this thing is a feather compared to the older ones. I pull the clutch in on turn entrance so maybe that's why I don't notice it as much.

Added reply in a thread 2016 450 Shootout Is Up! 10/29/2015 6:48 PM

I don't know where they got the more engine braking part from? My 16 kx has less than my '12 crf had. I read that and thought wtf? because I noticed that aspect of the bike right away. Maybe they don't use the clutch much, who knows.

Added reply in a thread FMF or PC??? 2016 kx450 10/28/2015 7:37 PM

I bought the fmf for mine, based just on the fact that they are at a lot of our local races where as PC isn't anywhere to be found. With that being said, I haven't rode with it yet, I sent my bike end over end down a 50yd whoop section on saturday with
