I recently picked up an 04 ATK 605 to ride while I finish rebuilding and improving my X440s. It steers much quicker than my Dale and helps a lot on tighter trails. I wonder if there is any way to change the rake of the forks on the Dale to get the steering to quicken up a bit. I realize I would give up some high speed stability

Re: STERING CAPABILITY ANY IMPROVMENT
But that is OK.
I love riding the smooth 440 and would like to improve it's trail capabilities. I am installing a Rekluse using Quad clutch gearing and plan on putting in a LHRB as well. I've raised the forks in the clamps as high as I can and will look at shortening my chain length a bit if I can. If it steered just a bit faster that would help tooI think the best way is to have your suspension revalved or softened. I was happy with how my Dale worked in the desert but in the tight stuff it would skip around a little. I had TooTech Suspension work on my front and back end. He took some bushings out of the forks to give me a softer top stroke on the front end and it really sticks much better now. Also it hasn't affected the bikes handling in high speed runs.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like you put the jack in a wrong place and sprung a shaft.or something you might want to check and see where you put the jack and see if that has happened. Check and see if the sterring gears are lining up as well when you turn the steering wheel.Have you lubericated the steering lately as well.

Asking about the age of the system devices is simple. Computer systems perform better with the most recent innovation. For example, computer inventions are made as improvements over the prior versions. A computer recently manufactored would have much capability than ealier innovations. The most recently changes to component parts performs better compared to devices of similar dates of innovation performing on older component parts. Computers that are impressionful have capacities over prior versions, examples of storage devices, memory, processing capability. Also, computers of recent innovation have features of improvement in component parts. Computer gets old to also known as out of date considering the several improvements that have been made over a selected computer design.
The best I can find is this post from MAZ.
I've seen other posts that say that ATK told them the rear wheel was a 605 wheel turned around just as you mention.
If it's as easy as getting a 605 and buying spacers from ATK let us know
Wait... fuel is pouring out of the crankcase breather? Are you sure it's not the carb overflow tube? The crankcase breather should be going back into your airbox or through some kind of filter.
If gas is coming out of there DO NOT START YOUR BIKE. It means that gas has gone from the tank through the carbs into the cylinder and is now in your oil. Thinned out oil is the devil for bikes.
Sounds like you'll need to clean the carbs and set the float bowl height and maybe rebuild the petcock. Check to see if any fuel is coming out when the petcock is turned off. If it only has on pri and reserve then check for gas in the vaccum tube.,,
as in offsets and more importantly the steering heed shaft diameter in the triple clamps (the middle hole where the shaft goes through the frame).INSTRUCTIONS: Click a bike to see the list of triple clamps for that brand.

then all of a sudden it started bogging at certain RPMs. Then it would'nt start for a while. It runs fine at idle but once the throttle is turned more that 1/4 turn it just sputters and backfires but does not stall...
Spark plug and battery can do this.QuickConnects or check injector plugs make sure both are injecting,
and have done more working on the bike than riding the bike. Unfortunately I'm back in that position again of the bike not running after getting it running last fall then overheated and wouldn't start again.
I think that I'm going to spend the money to have someone go through my 450 mx and rebuild and update some of the internals. Was thinking of just bringing the entire bike to someone and that way I know it would be ready to go when I picked it up.
The bike is in Boise (would be pretty easy to get it to ATK), but am working in Seattle area during the week right now for a while longer.
What are the options on this and who would you recommend?
,Since you are in Idaho I would recommend Blackwidow. They are a site sponser.
