Lol, i'm not big on bikes, don't know the parts that well, and I'm just a normal rider, not a badass or anything. Really should be on a 250, but then again my dad was the one to choose & buy the bike(s). Also uploaded pics. I would also say it does have a light weight chain (I assume they have those) as the honda has a lot fatter chain.

Chains are chains. Some are oring and some arent. If your riding trails id run a oring since you most likely go thru nasty crap. Us track guys use a regular chain, its alot narrower then a oring. You cant feel the power difference on a 450 atleast. Maybe a 250f but i doubt it, they are just cheaper.

I get a kick out of everyone with "mods" most of the time the fast guys just have there suspension setup and maybe a pipe. Unless they are sponsored riders they may have bolt on engine stuff.

Theres a few guys i ride with that have everything you can possibley do to a bike, they are not fast, but decent. My bike is bone stock even has a crooked front rim and im top 3 in novice and mid pack in intermediate. Soon im buying new wheels for it, and sending my suspension off for my weight, riding style, etc.

But hey whatever floats your boat, i just rather use my money to pay the gate fees and keep the maintence up, i have to change my oil every other ride.

Btw renthal bars come stock on every real mx bike

Oh okay, that makes more sense that the kx has one without orings then the honda that appears it was only used for trail riding. Yea I'm pretty new to it, and don't know the terms & etc.

Im just busting your balls 250f is alot better for woods imo. 450 is just to wild. Thumpertalk.com is a good place to read so you get an idea.

A street legal bike? If not they are freaking expensive and it would be better to stick to just dirt considering just brakes cost about 2 grand
