2005 KTM 450 EXC
400/450/525 EXC RACING
The use of new materials raises the temperature resistance of the ignition and means greater stability at extreme temperatures. The new CDI box with optimized ignition timing provides increased per-formance and at the same time more steering lock on account of the smaller dimensions.
The modified pressure cap ensures better oil supply and conse-quently cooling of the clutch, greater durability and more precise application.
