New to me blown 06 450 need help
« on: June 01, 2019, 06:37:41 AM »
Hey guys/girls new to the forum here, I recently bought a 06 kx450 with a Grenaded bottom end. It needs both case halves and a crank, and a cylinder and a laundry list of other parts. Iím curious as to what year model engines will bolt up in my frame or any advice you guys have. I can build the engine myself always been a Honda guy but for 300$ I couldnít pass it up.

Welcome to the site Punisher3.  Man, you got a steal on that bike!  The parts interchange list that Sandblaster put together show 06-08 having a lot of overlap, so I think anything in that range should have similar motor mounts (if you are thinking about a complete motor swap).  Not to change the subject, but have you thought about using the frame for a two stroke conversion?  A 250 or 500 would look really nice in that frame.

Thanks for the reply and the interchange list. Iíve thought about swapping it out with a 2T engine but wasnít sure what all it would entail, if u had to weld or cut on the frame. I weld and fabricate for a living but Iíve never fooled with welding aluminum, but it would be awesome to have an aluminum frame 2 stroke.

Well I just scored a nice set of 07 cases, transmission, and cylinder for a 07 model, a new piston, crankshaft and every gasket?and seal are next on the list, my question now is will the 06 cdi work on the 07 engine?

according to partzilla.com they are different part numbers 21119-0069 for the 07 and 21119-0066 for the 06
each year cdi only lists compatible with that year only so possibly slight programming differences?
maybe it will?  worth a try

I searched the forums for a while trying to figure out if all the years timing plugs and oil fill plug was the same with no luck!? Just trying to give it some color but canít find any green plugs for a 06-08 All 09 and up any body know if the will work?
