Tell him you’re a great what kind of rider you are and you are trying to accomplish, and he’ll a common sense solution.

We to Roeseler about the KLX’s of throttle response. He told us we need a new carburetor, throttle and pipe. Roeseler states the is that Kawasaki fitted a CV on the KLX.

Constant velocity are common in street bike where they produce acceleration and reduce engine CV’s prevent an engine being fed more fuel it can handle.

With a CV carb, the at which its slide opens is more on engine vacuum physical throttle response or Whack the throttle open or it on quickly and the slide will only as fast as engine builds. When riding if you need a burst of power to over an obstacle or steer a wash, you’ll need to what you want from the well in advance, not to mention the clutch more than

Stroker sent us a pipe, and throttle. Here’s what we Remove the stock air filter and it with a KX 500 part. It’s and will flow more Stroker recommends against the airbox lid, but since been doing a bit of wet weather we choose instead to modify the lid to more air flow.

We simply rectangular cuts in the box lid and used glue to fasten nylon where plastic had been.

The full-turn throttle fitted as on the KLX is a carpal tunnel sufferer’s Stroker sent us a Motion Pro CR Pro complete with a custom made for the KLX. Once in, a quarter turn and the KLX will full power.

Remove the gas tank and shrouds and you are ready to replace the Roeseler provided us with a TM33-8012 flat slide with the following base

The carb kit comes with instructions, but we made some to save time and energy. the carburetor requires you to modify the head-stay.
