KX450F / KX250F / 21 kwakes
« Last post by KXDINO on July 09, 2020, 11:22:21 AM »
The new 21 250 ,450 are out and will be good bikes with the 250 getting most of the changes and good ones at that, im glad they improved the clutch as that needed improvement on the 450 the most from experience , i would of liked to see slighty larger fuel tanks and optional wr transmission offered on the xc models and a headlight to distinguish from kx models , the biggest disappointment of 21 is no 300 or larger 2 stroke xc they need to fill this spot. Not everyone wants a ktm 2 stroke that needs a new head and reflash straight away to make them run right , we have done heaps of them in our area aloan and it not cheap ,at least they offer 2 strokes.

KX500 Original / I installed the Rekluse Radiois x

So I install the rekluse clutch and I thought I would just put my findings in here.  Talk about my set up in case anybody is interested in the future. And answer any questions people might have.

I absolutely love it. The set up was super easy. After a couple rides I have not noticed any slipping from the clutch at any time. I ride trails single track mostly and fire roads. I recommend using all your normal shift points. The only change Iíve made when it comes to shifting is being able to stay in second gear On almost all single track. The only time I ever use first gear anymore Is when I come to a very slow obstacle or when Iím starting out on an incline. I could start in second just fine but no reason to put extra wear on the clutch. You wonít burn it up or hurt anything starting in second gear. Apparently guys have been doing it on the clutch for years with no bad results. but like any clutch it will wear down faster.

The clutch comes with recluses medium weights I believe. I just kept the weights in it that came from the factory.  You can get heavier weights for a quicker more solid lock up and lighter weights for a more feathered outfield. To me the medium weights are perfect. The clutch also comes with a mix of two types of springs that are used to set the stall. The red springs are for a quicker engagement and the green springs are for a later engagement. It comes from the factory with a mix of both springs for a medium engagement. The lower softer springs would have our bikes being pulled all the time. Pretty much unusable I think. The stock medium set up had my bike slightly pulling when it would fluctuate to the higher end of my RPM range while idol. So Iím gonna try out all green springs. Itís not much probably only a couple hundred RPM. I also want it to disengage easier on the trails when going down hills or otherwise leading off the throttle. Iíll update my findings after doing the switch. Let you guys know if the stall is too high and I go back to the settings I have now.

With all that said the clutch is amazing. It doesnít take any fun out of riding.it just makes you a better rider and letís you concentrate more on the trail. My buddies been riding his whole Life and heís bad ass. I probably donít even have 100 individual rides under my belt.  I made it up a tricky single track hill climb that he turned around on about halfway up.
My buddy was pretty impressed.

I donít go down often. Iím a pretty slow methodical rider. Just enjoy myself. But I feel like I will go down even less with this.  You just feel more in control. And that hill climb with something I never wouldíve probably bothered attempting before the clutch. If nothing else just because I wouldnít feel like doing the work necessary. but with a recluse it was easy.  First day out and it had me try and stuff that I wouldnít have bothered on before.

By far the best thing or enhancement Iíve done to my bike. I find myself just smiling and shaking my head on some trails. Just enjoying myself in the kind of rider it makes me.
Iíve got a 13 tooth front sprocket and a 52 or 54 in the rear I think. I might have to get back on that. I just put the bike in second gear and get on that low pipe and the thing just pulls you through anything. Itís pretty Phenomenal.

KX500 Original / Did I ruin my magneto rotor?
« Last post by swindog on July 07, 2020, 12:07:03 PM »
Hey fellas, on the magneto rotor there is a black ring on the outside edge which faces the stator. I got a bit carried away with the wire wheel and filed it down a bit in a few parts. Its supossed to be about 2mm thick all the way around but now its a bit wavy, some parts being 0.5-1mm thick.

To be honest im not sure what its actually for because as far as i can tell all the generating magnets are on the inside. Could someone please tell me what it its purpose is? have i broken it? and if so is there a way i can fix it.

Cheers fellas, Alex

more power for both mx models, cone disc hydralic clutch for all models, e start added to both 250 , 18 inch rear tire for xc models , skid plate, renthal fat bars new rear link specs. 250s get new frame etc. All good they got 2 more models that dont cost much to develop . They still need a new model to replace klr650 , a updated kx65 would be good and a 250 or more 2 stroke for kx riders to keep them happy :-D.
