We wanted a completely different look for our Specbolt Kawasaki KX450 build. We installed an Acerbis all black plastics kit, Backyard Designs matte graphics, SDG seat cover and green accent pieces throughout. Major suspension upgrades were made by Race Tech that included Gold Valves and a Spring Fork conversion.
The P3 Carbon tank cover gives the bike a cool look and cost a fraction of what a real carbon fiber tank.
IMS Core MX pegs have an aggressive tooth design and are wider than the stock units.
Ride Engineering 21.5mm clamps allowed us to run larger diameter Tag handlebar, provided quicker turning and gave the bike a cool look.
Internally we installed stage 2 Hot Cams, high compression piston, and a Rekluse Torque Drive clutch pack for a little added performance without going overboard.
