transmission gearing in a KFX400 vs Z400

01 RAPPY 660

Recommended Posts

I have never seen the KXF400

But I know that "officialy" suzuki gives the same motors to arctic cat, kawasaki, dezus, etc... as what goes in to every other suzuki...

But there always seems to be less power with the motors that go in to the other brands!

I guess that suzuki is only backing off the size of the cam lobes / timming or maybe just making thicker base gaskets that reduce the compression (without telling anyone)

then there is the issue of the other brands chosing diffrent gearing with the sprockets or making a different air box shape (I think when arcitcat used the LTA500 motor in there atv they make a big stuff up with the airbox and lost heaps of power too)

either way the bike is still going to be a good bike and can always be made to go faster!

i totaly agree.

But kawasaki and suzuki were only "sharing" some models of each others bikes.

Kawasaki made the new KXF250 2003-2006 (RMZ250 2003-2006)

There could be more but I cant think off the top of my head.

the only motove suzuki could have is to make their bikes with the same motor "be the best" so that people are more inclined to buy the suzuki bike. and thus make more money?
