your bike is getting hot? from what I have heard the klx450 is very similar to the kx450f. My 450 was getting really hot and boiling the coolant over, I bought a Boyeson super cooler water pump and started running maxima coolantol. Bike hasn't boiled over yet and I have riddin it in conditions that would have rendered the bike unrideable and nbo problems. I would say that would be your solution.

Wow, were you in my garage?
I just bought one, rode it once, the battery is dead and I can't even kick the bitch.
I'm taking it back first chance I get. I rode the other day, it was hot. The bike ran OK didn't want to idle so good. The battery died after 4 or 5 times and it was a bitch to start. I have to use the hot start and kick it over. found out it was easier to roll down a hill. not so happy in GA
