the 06-08 KX450F front guard bolts straight on.
the pic I threw up in your team klx home page thread has 1 bolted to it

as for the rear guard, Maier do a MX style guard for the KLX300
that I think will bolt straight up.

problem is I can't find an importer for Maier here in Oz.
postage from the states drives the cost up a little.

With this bike we want to go with a real modern look, I want to pull up at the traffic lights and have people look across at the bike and think, Gee, Kawasaki must have a new model out, what is it , A KLX700R

Maybe Kawasaki Australia will ship a pic of it over to the designers in Jap land.

It will be OK Myway, with a big KLX sticker up each side they will never know.

We already have the KLR trailbike and the KLX450 enduro, we are just missing what should be in between. A more aggressive style big bore adventure mount.

Fogo, is it still your plan to use a base spacer rather than use a shorter rod? I'm just interested to know if the cam chains will tolerate this.

hey everyone. Dont be easier to put an piston and an cilinder fron other bike like dr big suzuki?I remember that in the 80s and first 90s it was a popular bibe to tooning for the S.O.S races,Ive seen in this years an german preparation winer the european championship with liquid cooled and only one balancer and electric inyection.It was abaut 90 hp!!!. Also in the dakar bies have 70 to 80 HP
This is a construction near the same a klx. I was thinking it same time ago but i dont know if i can put a 105 piston in the cilinder.I hope that it can give you same light.

I have been talking to a few people about the stroker mod and it seems that you can get away with not using a shorter rod if you raise the barrel. The reason they put shorter conrods on car engines is because the crank case is part of the cylinder bore and cant be spaced up. I was told that a shorter rod increases the conrod to piston angle wanting to jamb the piston into the side of the cylinder wall.
I hope this engine turns out to be a real tractor that pulls high speeds at a lower RPM.
Raising the barrel wont worry the cam chain too much, heaps of slack.

I have bought a heap of stuff off eBay over the last couple of nights.
Battling with miss matched plastics I ended up buying a full plastics kit and seat for a 2008 model KX450F. The fairing is getting made and I spoke to a guy who will help me make a mould of the fairing once it is cut up and adapted to fit the KLX.
Junior has officially lost his licence now so maybe I might see him in the shed a bit more taking some interest. He has been busy and I feel that I am doing this all my own. But believe me he wont be racing if I have to build this all myself.
