I was able to get out to Cahuilla Creek on a few weekends and burn quite a few laps. The biggest benefit of this bike for me thus far is having the Race Tech Fork Spring Conversation Kit. Once I get to the track, it’s unload the bike and ride. I do not have to worry about checking the air in the forks and the hassle of making sure everything is perfect before I go strap on the helmet. While all my other friends are going through the motions of checking their air and putting their tools away, I have already burned 10 to 15 laps. If you are bit pressed for time when you go out to the track like myself, it’s a huge difference having the “Race Tech Spring Conversion” on your Kawasaki 450F. I have a better front end feel with the spring conversion kit and when the track changes over the course of the day, I don’t have to adapt to a new feeling front end every time I get back on the track. With Cahuilla MX being such a high-speed, sandy track, you can really open the green monster up and see what the engine is capable of. I was fortunate enough to have a friend on stock 2016 KX450F, so I wanted to ride his stocker back to back to feel the difference. One of the biggest differences (other than the suspension having more comfort) was the exhaust. The FMF Racing 4.1 System makes a noticeable difference on the low to mid range power coming out of corners. You can really feel the bottom end hit and since I like a strong hit off idle (and I am running the lean coupler), this exhaust works very for me.
