Here is a page to show how you build a mini. Use the links at the bottom of the page to find your parts.
This is a 2006 Kawasaki KX 65. $2800 retail new.
We got our KX 65 form Cycle Sports Center in Orlando, Fl. 407-299-9191 Ask for Stan!!
These are the 2.15" x 12" wide rims. $119 ea.
Here is the wide rim laced to a stock hub using heavy duty spokes.
Spoke kit is $86 ea.
Lacing labor is $90 ea.
We can provide a new hub if you want to keep your dirt wheels
Here is a wide rim laced to a Rad Billet hub with Sava tires mounted
We keep high volume of 10", 12", and 17" race tires. Look at tires page for prices.
Now we have the rims and tires mounted. It is starting to take shape.
Bark Busters are a must. These retail for $49.95.
The Bark Busters save your hands and levers in a crash.
Fork braces keep the front end from twisting in corners. $75 ea. from www.rswracing.com
To me, this is the MOST important thing you can do to any bike. Suspension! We are using the Ohlins
shock on our bike. It has preload adjustment, rebound, compression, and ride height. Retail is $693
The shock is designed for a 60 pound rider. We have to replace the stock spring with a heavy duty spring. If you buy
your Ohlins from us, we will put the proper spring on for FREE!!
Dave at Ohlins decided to revalve the shock to get even better response from the settings!!
You can now install your new Ohlins!! You will have to adjust your preload to your riding style.
I am happy to announce we have found the perfect place to get your heavy duty fork springs. No more cutting
and adding spacers and all that questionable stuff. These guys knew all the answers to my tough questions.
The KX had .27kg springs and Rob at www.minibikesprings.com hooked us up with some .43kg springs. Sweet!!!
We can sell you these or you can call Rob. 918-633-3593 Retail is $89.95
Here is the difference between your stock springs and the Minibike springs
Just for the looks, we had some decals made. Check these out.
It's Mini Me........
Ready to race!!!!
Ken Gossom at Mirror Images Photography took this action shot of the KX 65. Thanks Ken!!
This is the Dyno graph for the FMF SST pipe with the Power Core 2 silencer. The red line shows the FMF power curve. This is not what we are looking for. This pipe had initial power loss, turned on hard, then died on top end. It would be very hard to control the power.
This is the Dyno graph for the Pro Circuit Works pipe with the 304 Shorty silencer. The blue line shows the Pro Circuit power curve. This is what we are looking for. The peak power is down BUT the overall power curve is better and throttle response is smoother. The pipe stays on the power longer and levels off to keep you in the high horse power for a longer RPM range. Gear selection is not as critical with the Pro Circuit. I give this pipe a "thumbs up". Stay tuned for engine modifications........
We have the biggest brakes you can get for a KX65. We teamed up with QTM to build a 220mm rotor,
2 piston Brembo caliper, 12mm master cylinder, and Goodridge brake line. The kit retails for $600.
MX-TECH Suspension Inc sent us a trick fork kit to test for a KX65. They developed a speed sensitive fully adjustable
fork kit that modernizes the design to current big bike technology. In effect making the KX65 fork work well
with the quality Ohlins shock in the rear. They have tested and refined their design over the last 3 years and
feel confident in its use with the most demanding adult or youth mini-moto or mini road race applications.
We will be testing this kit over the next few races. Check them out at mx-tech.com
