That does not seem right at all, haha! 450f's start easy 1 kick, heck, my 650r starts in 1-3 kicks.

If it's that hard to start the carb jetting is off.

Mine would kick start with the stock carb, but it wasn't consistent. With the FCR carb, it kicks first time, just like my CRF did!

What carb is on the start 450 ds? I'm hoping to go over it this weekend. And nj motor vehicle still won't register mine. Christini sent me a fan and switch for the radiator. And a straight header pipe and looks like the muffle that comes off the 450 enduro. Which is really cool of him. The fcr carb I have in my garage is junk. Came off a wr 450. So I can't use that one. So I'm going to stick with the stock carb for awhile. Just not sure what brand carb it is and if the is jets available. Any info? And since the cat exhaust is so choked up. What jets have been tried with the stock ds carb with a better flowing exhaust?

The stock DS 450 carb is some 28mm CV carb, just say no! I have a 40mm FCR off a CRF450R on mine and it is waaaay better.

Wow Pete, Congrats.

I am glad it isn't EFI and doesn't have a 6 speed tranny. I am safe for now.

How is the subframe?

It's actually a 38mm CV.

Handguards?

A quick look at the manual appears to me that the upper trees are similar enough to the 450 X that I could use the same tree pinch bolt mount for the Cycra Pro-Bends. See this pic. This worked very well for me for 4 years on the X. Anyone using this on their Christini?

If not, what is the bar diameter so I can order the correct clamp size?

With the new exhaust it fires right up with the kick start. Now time to go thru the carb. Think there would be a way to get that thing out easier. With just the exhaust change the power was hugely increased. Wheelies no problem now

Good to hear.
Got my first batch of parts from Christini . New ratio and chain for the front. Gear box all back together, clutch rebuilt.
Pulled the forks to replace seals and found all the drop out bearings bad and drive hubs destroyed. Also found one of the upper fork legs dented(stiff spot in the stroke, damn PO). Waiting for more Christini parts.

On a good note, dealing with Christini has been good so far. KTM Hutt on the other hand, VERY BAD!

Definitely larger than 28, but I measure only 35mm?

That is odd, since it is supposed to be "50 state street legal"?!

i think its actually legal in 49 states. and it is on the m.i.d. list for the nhsta. just new jersey motor vehicle hasnt put it on there list yet. hopefully today the only person who updates the motorcycle approval list will be in today. i got my fingers crossed but i aint gonna hold my breath.

got the carb out and on the bench. forgot to measure it though. the carb is very light weight. lol. it has a plastic slide. not really looking good inside. i did a very slight opening on the holes on it. not really much there to work with. the needle is snapped into place. so shimming aint gonna happen. i had a slightly softer spring and it seems to work good. took the bowl off and that has to be the worst fitting gasket down there. stuck the gasket in the freezer to get it to contract for installed. as for jetting. it had a 140 in it. went through my drawer full of jets. after lots of labor and playing around i left in the 150 dynojet jet in. it seems to be alot more responsive and runs so much smoother. that carb will have a very short life on there. working on getting that air pump valve thingy off next. when i had that hooked up it would just let the bike run a little like shit. bypassed it and so much better.
