Stock Bike Friday: Adam Cianciarulo’s Kawasaki KX250F

Mechanic: Brett Mountain

 



According to factory mechanic Brett Mountain, there’s not a lot on Adam Cianciarulo’s Creature Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki KX250F that’s stock. Most of the major elements are either works items through Japan, or hand-made pieces create in the Pro Circuit build store.

Of course , the exhaust is Pro Circuit, and is a mix of titanium and carbon fiber. Naturally, it is super light and well built.

As far as the suspension, Hill says that Adam likes his forks to be pretty stiff compared to the rear suspension.

“That’s where we struggle, though, keeping the suspension balanced, ” states Mountain. “To be able to keep the front stiff enough for him so it doesn’t feel like it’s diving on him coming into a corner, that’s usually his main deal. ”

In the triple clamp division, Mountain says the team makes their own clamps and they have several different options. “The team is always experimenting with counter and triple clamp material, ” says Mountain. “We usually thin it down to one or two and then the riders pick which one they such as. I think right now, the entire team is using the same clamp. ”

Everyone is on the same engine package, too, according to Mountain. “Some may like a different clutch adjustment, but so far as the rest of the engine, all of our guys possess the same setup – same engine, same gearing, ” says Hill.

As far as brakes are worried, Mountain says they run a various set of brake components for supercross and outdoors, since the ones useful for supercross don’t have to endure a simlar amount of abuse as the ones useful for outdoors.

“The front caliper is factory and it has smaller sized pads, which gives it more power, ” says Mountain. “The rear brake is stock, for the most part, although we now have a different piston in it, and we do a couple of little mods to them. ”

The rear linkage is made and built by Pro Routine, and Mountain says the group did extensive testing during the off-season to find the right dimensions.

The radiators are works radiator units from Japan, and they’re somewhat bigger than stock and allow for a bit better cooling. They also have bigger radiators they use for outdoors or if this rains or is really sandy.

The wheels and hubs are factory, as well, and the pegs, which are pretty cool, are built in-house.
