300mm Brake Rotor - Front

Has any one a recommended supplier for a 300mm brake rotor for the front of the G450X? I know caliper has to be moved out, reason is I am mounting up a set of Marzocchi 50mm Corse forks and the mounts are out further.

Cheers
Pilbara

I also use a 7/8 socket. It is a good fit after grinding back the front of the socket which had a fairly deep countersink on it. Not good when trying to engage the very shallow hex on the filter cover. After the modification, there is full engagement with the cover, and it works fine. I use a stubby ratchet when installing the cover due to the aluminum on aluminum threads. It always stays tight, and breaks free nicely at the next oil change.

Lambda Probe? New Header Pipe

My new exhaust head pipe does not have a place for the Lambda Probe to thread into, what do I do? Do I need it? If not what do I do with the Probe and wires? Thanks!!! Kyle

Hello Kyle, No you don't need it, It runs fine just uses a little more fuel if you keep the throttle open a lot. It has a connector that you just pull apart after pushing the release clip. Just tape up the plug on the wiring loom to keep it clean and dry. Turf the Lambda in your tool box.

You could just buy a nut to suit the lambda sensor and weld it on to the header pipe and drill a hole. I was able to machine a radius in the nut to suit the diameter of the header tube and it fitted well. Like I said, you do not need it as the computer will just use the fixed fuel map.

Cheers

Fork Protectors for Marzocchi Corse

I am hoping someone can point me to a supplier of fork guards/protectors for Marzocchi Corse USD 50mm forks. I have fitted these up to my 450, but the protectors from the standard OEM 45mm forks don't fit. The mounting bolts are not locateed in same place.

I have spent many hours searching the net but can not come up with anything, infact can't seem to find anything on the forks at all.

Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

When I got home I put on the Acerbis Handguards and a real bash plate

Now to get into some woods and ride this thing - local roads around here shows a stout and nimble ride.

Cool - another New Englander! Don't rush on the bash plate - I've said it before, and I'll say it again, thick plastic is every bit as good as thin metal. The stock piece is much sturdier and better covering than it lets on.

I find that with the alum skid plate the bike rests easily on a normal mx stand.

Other mods I would suggest

1. Rear lift strap
2. Small led directionals
3. Led tail light
4. Full hand guards if that's not what you already have.

If you have the money (in priority order)
1. Get the suspension tuned. I had Dicks in ca do the front and have the speed brain WP shock in the rear. Suspension work will make a difference no matter what your riding level.
2. Neutech tubliss setup
3. Touratech header guard
4. Touratech rear rack ( do not get the BMW rack)
5. Touratech rear break cylinder guard
6. Touratech seat
7. Leo Vince or akrapovik exhaust

Thanks!!!

Where can I find something on the lift strap I noticed that this will be a huge help

All the other stuff is going on the wish list - again thanks for the time outlining these items

Interesting. I have the big ugly tail light on my '09. The smaller lights must have been misplaced before delivery.

Hello Semper, Highway Dirt Bikes make some neat LED units for the rear and have them integrated into the hand-guards at the front, that are awesome.


'they also have fold out mirrors, which keeps it legal, but out of the way.



...and if you are real keen, Bert's tanks have two great aluminium grab handles built in to the back of them, won't need the grab strap then

Cheers
