Fe450 Con Rod kit

Hi,

trying to find a cheaper than original conrod kit for my -08 FE450. Seems to only be original or mx composites around. I saw Taffmeister on ebay with the 1mm shorter conrod, but that does not feel right somehow.

Here in sweden the original conrod kit is about 360EUR and mx composites kit is about 1200EUR including taxes and stuff.
Thanks from bushmechanic

Re: Fe450 Con Rod kit

Carrillo may have already made one for someone and may know the info - may have to ask for the KTM eqivalent part as it would be much more likely they would have made one of those IMO.

Re: Fe450 Con Rod kit

Are the Carillo rods forged? How about weight vs OEM? Much stronger also than OEM? Car and inline bike Carillos are the best money can buy. Was just wondering how they do in single bikes.

I want to put 13.5:1 piston in my 570 but I'm scared to break my stock rod.

Re: Fe450 Con Rod kit

After some digging, I found that the Pro-X con rod number 03-6423 should fit. Although it is 1mm shorter than the Husberg one.

According to google this is the same conrod as in KTM 450 SX-F 2008-2010. These are pretty cheap

Or use a (cheaper) wossner KTM 525 piston which is also taller.

Re: Fe450 Con Rod kit

Thats right

This ebay store is the cheapest i could find in wossner pistons, a wossner piston for my SX-F 250 was only 105GBP!
Just email him for the 8583DA piston and ask a price (he does not have all pistons in the shop)

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/maxmotosaloon

edit:
look here this is the piston you need (variating A-B or C size):
110GBP
Much better than the ELKO which is 200+euro as far as i know
