2005-2007 kx to kxf interchangeable parts??
« on: May 23, 2019, 09:46:23 PM »
Hi all,
Im currently rebuilding my 2006 kx250.
I have a few parts i would like to upgrade to newer parts on the kxf model although unsure if part will retro fit to the kx. Any clarification is greatly appreciated 👍🏻

Kxf to kx triple clamps? Possibly ohlins? Although they could be a different size all together.

Kxf forks to standard kx triple clamps?

Kxf 250f clutch swap to kx? (Was thinking of a hinson upgrade?)

if you go to all the trouble to change triple clamps , get a set with off set around 22 mm , this will make the front not slide out on flat corners the reason being kawi steepen head angle by 1 degree from 04 model to 05 onwards and didnt change off set to suit there fore it hasnt enough trail making the front tire slide out on flat corners, you will notice the improvement.the std front forks can be made a lot better by changing to a softer spring , the short one at the top of the fork in side the inner cartridge , easy to get hold of and while you at it fit a gold valve set up to your specs , i even gold valve the mid valve which helps as well , this will make it work a lot better. the kxf forks will need just as much done to them as well except the inner cartridge spring it seems good.and dont bother with the showa air fork unless you convert it to spring then its ok.
