I guess you'll be joining Eddie and Aimee as part of the MO. Pumpkins.

Congrats on the new bike and welcome to your new forum. I bet you're counting down the hours. :thumb:

Rick, when you get it and before you take it out for a test ride make sure you locktite the kickstarter and shifter. They are notorious for coming loose. If you stop by the house I'll show you what I did for heim joint protection (cheap and easy and seems to be holding up great). I'll try to remember the other little odd's and ends too if the other guys don't chime in first. The jury seems to be a little bit mixed about the accelerator pump so we'll see what the majority say. I shortened mine up a bit.

I thought from the title, this was an off-flavored joke. Welcome to the order of the Katoom nation-Missou style.

A 04 450 EXC it should be in town in the morning. I'M SYKED! I got a bunch of extras that should be following it in a few days. In the meantime, i think I will just sit on it in front of the T.V. !! Knowing me, I will have this thing in a million pieces, and back together again just so I know what I am dealing with. I'll take you up on that invite eddie...............

Gnarlykaw,

the swiss flag makes it seem likely that you might understand German. If so have a look at the website of a friend of mine. He has listed a lot of modifications and improvements he did to his 450 (and 520 and XR and and and...)

Welcome to the pumpkin patch. I just switch from Green to Orange myself a couple of months and WOW!

My 450 EXC is the other woman or a mid-life crisis, either way it makes me smile. I have yet to figure out to get it upstairs.
