Just go buy one! I switched from a z to the kfx450 and it's 210 times better. I bought the first green one my dealer had in March of 07, raced mx all year and only had a problem with the tank. They recalled that and it's no longer an issue. Most of the other stuff were isolated incindents. I would'nt worry and go buy one.

Ive had mine since november and nothing has gone wrong at all. As long as you do the 10 hour break in period and keep good maintenance on it, the thing will last forever. We still have a 01 300ex thats running as fast as the new 06's.
instead of changing the oil every 100 hors as it recomends i change it every 15-20. and i clean the airfiler every 2-3 rides(if each ride is about 5 hours)

basically im saying.. GET IT!

if you do get one find a 1986 kawasaki tecate-3 tranny and make a way to put that in it then change the gearing to like 13/40 and your going to be on a rocket

No that's just someone who had nothing to say so they tried anyway. The kfx it a great quad and you will be very happy.I is always scary buying a new one when you dont know what to expect. The quad is great tere was a recall and it only affected the tank the found that issue as soon as they hit the floor. Kawsaki is already on their sixth prod run so it is a sound unit any changes that need to be made were done a long time ago good luck you will love it I have own trx yfz ltz and now the kf x no remorse at all

ltr is wide but if ur going to race either one there both the same really besides the ltr being wider but everyone swaps stock out when thy race so that doesnt really matter and you dont want wide on tight trails it sucks lol
