I rode my buddies 450 a couple weeks ago, and the heat around my knees, coming from the radiators seemed really hot compared to my 250x. Is it cuz it's a bigger bike or do we need to look into jetting? And what are the jet sizes recommended? We're riding later today so we might check into it. Is the carb a bitch to get to like my Honda?


Thanks for any help. 


Smart asses need not reply  ;)  :D

If the header is glowing red then its jetting. Look into some over sized radiators off of ebay.

I feel the heat a lot more on my 450 than I did on my 250.  Probably nothing to worry about as long as it's running OK.
