Tested it out at the 1st AWRCS in Chester WV this weekend.

Doesn't start as fast as the 05 TRX450R was about 15th of 18 in my class.
Tons of power for me. Couldn't hang too long with the thumb throttle though.
Thought I would only get a lap or 2 in but got 4 and finished mid pack in my class
and overall. Also threw a chain and so did another KFX racer did. A little tweaking of the suspension and definatly a twist throttle will
be perfect for me. Maybe some OEM shock upgrades?

Glad to hear you did well on a stock KFX and the power output is good. Did you race with stock tires on it? Keep us updated on your ride.

Did you adjust the chain after the break in ride and how did your stock rear skid hold up?

I'll be letting Chris Jenks throw mine around the woods abit this weekend to get his imput.

Good idea, new chains stretch quick. Chris Jenks is going to ride your bike. :banana: That is sweet, let us know what he says.

I did adjust the chain. I think it was just a fluke thing for me and just a coincedence for the other guy.
I ran Hipers with Razr-2's.

Did it bind up bad at the case? Hopefully not. I need to adjust my chain and change the oil before this weekends ride.

I can't wait to get hipers on mine. I'll prob run razr-2's on the front and i-razr rears

Thats the same setup my friend runs and it turns out to be one of the best tire/rim combos for i've seen for xc racing.

It had a little zig-zag to it between the sprocket and the swing-arm but came out easily.

AWRCS is not sanctioned by the AMA
It is a good series, tight & technical tracks, slower pace than the GNCC's
Only about 100 or so racers per event but growing.

Next year willhave more racers and more sponsors with contingencies.
Hopefully a few new tracks also.
