I heard they are slow. Just what I heard.
I did it and you're right but it still was out. There were jumps I was landing like 1-3ft short w/full throttle and no preload. I had to preload to clear and after taking out the arrestor it had just enough to hit it w/out preloading the suspension. It actually helps it breathe a little but the sound is horrid.by the way if u get 1 dont take out spark arrester sounds horrible
It didn't get dirtbike of the year for its motor. Both Honda and KTM has several more HP than the Kawi in their dirtbike counterparts.That's not what the magazine reviews have been saying. They say it has tons of power and it is the best 450 on the market. The kx dirtbike with the 450 motor got best bike of the year because of that motor. I wouldn't be surprised if the people that say its slow have all been riding modded 450's.
Haven't ridden one but I hear it has the most power.It didn't get dirtbike of the year for its motor. Both Honda and KTM has several more HP than the Kawi in their dirtbike counterparts.
I completey argee. i love my new 450. once the after market companies start releasing all there parts, the KFX will probably be a beast. i race my stock KFX at the local mx series and do fine. the only place i suffer at is in the high speed flat corners b/c the LTRs are wider. thats the only compliant.I have one and love mine.It has plenty of power and handles very good.It isnt a top end speed demon,but I can leap in front of a stock LTR and a slightly modded 2003 pred.I think they would get me in a long straight.We have a field and I am getting about 70 out of it.It flys through the air really nice.I have several pretty good jumps and some really tight corners and it does them with ease.I think with the DASA pipe a power commander and some airbox mods it is going to be a really good quad and hard to beat.I have reacently had a fully modded KFX and a fully modded 2003 Raptor.The new KFX is way better then either as far as all around easy to ride corner and it has pretty impressive power stock not top speed but good rev and good pulling through the gears.
Stock?? ?? It's good to dream big my friend!1 HAHa40-60 in like 2 seconds i say its pretty good and i almost got it topped out about 87 MPH i was going for 90
