fmf pipe not fitting

Postby bike4500 » 11:15 am Mar 10 2018

Hi everyone. I have a 2002 kx 125 that i'm having a hard time fitting my fmf gnarly woods pipe in the frame. It's hitting the down tube before it will get into the engine. It seems to be about a 1/2 inch short even with the engine rotated as far is it will go. Should i just weld on a extension to the pipe? Thanks for your help.

Sounds like you dont have much choice on the extention.

Careful titling the engine too far forward.

Yup, set the engine properly then make any mods you need to do to the pipe.

The pipe is all fitted up now. I did have to put a spacer in and bent the stinger up a little to fit a kx250 spark arrestor. thanks aric
