Other than the flywheel weight, I say get gaurds for the radatiors and the heavy tubes for your wheels

I think under 60 miles out of a stock tank.......

its not his ridin, they just like to stall. My 426 does it at the most crappy times. If your on moderatley slippery stuff sometimes its best coming into a corner to pull the clutch in and say hell with motor breaking, that way it wont stall. I have the flywheel weight to, heaviset one. It helped alittle but not what i was hoping for. I think basicly you just have to ride and get used to it. As you know its a complete change from a 2-stroke.

seeya!

I used to really hate life when my KLX would stall. The main rule was, when you fall, at all cost, hang on to the clutch lever, no matter what! Now, I don't worry about it. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

get a KTM520 ex/c, or DRZ400, the e button is the best, but i dont' think u could ever stall a 520, i could nearly get to a stop with that in 3rd gear, gun it and throw 20ft of rocks at the ppl sittin on the benches, lol.
