It's true, anything that can be done to this engine/chassis platform has been done. If one wants to build a showcase KLX, look back to 1997 or thereabouts, and maybe add titanium valves.

I haven't had a chance to watch the whole thing yet, but just skimming through... Looks like so much fun. I also got quite a chuckle out of the Peter Griffin inspired segment.

TM36-68 is the right carb. It fits the stock boots. You might find you need longer cables, if you're not lucky with creative rerouting.

As far as I know, the '05-'07 transmission seizure issue is the only sudden/catastrophic type failure that is somewhat common in these bikes. So if you run a full quart, you'll probably be OK.

That's correct - the model intended for the 1993-2007 KLX250/300R/S bikes is not a direct swap onto the 09+ models. BUT, the only reason is that the 09+ brake rotor diameter is too large. If one...
