Package came yesterday, opened it and it was the ooracing klx frame i ordered. it took them 3 days for them to get it to me, which i thought was good and i was in no rush. when i came to open it, the subframe came out first, i was quite impressed and found it a good idea to have a detatchable one, becuase i am thinking about getting it powdercoated in the future. the frame was out next, i noticed it was quite a bit heavier than my 110fxj frame, but i was very impressed with the build quality and strength and i especially liked this detail near the swingarm area

6317

the forks fitted perfectly and do fit crf50 style bearings, you have to press the cup in, like on mtb headsets.

next i was to put the swingarm on, ooracing has made a very big flaw in the design, i thought my superstomp swingarm was going to slide straight in, but no, the mounts were about 2mm larger on each side and needed to be cut/grinded down. i thought it was going to just be a simple cut to get it fitted. next problem was the 10mm bolt that is suppost to go through the mount was 12mm which i have bought a 12mm pipe with a 10mm inside diameter to fit, so that should sort out the swingarm problem.

the subframe was slightly out of shape, and the mounting holes didnt match up, but with a bit of muscle power it fitted fine.

here are some teaser pics

i will keep updating over time, to give you a good review on a budget klx style frame

just a word of warning, the kit comes with no bolts or instructions, and ooracing seem to know very little about the setup when a rang them


pros:
-good build quality
-removable subframe
-cradle frame
-removable engine brackets
-good price (69.99 + 7.99 p&p)

cons:
-slightly bad customer service with ooracing
-swingarm problems
-subframe didnt mount up
