I say skip the throttle tamer and flywheel weight, go up two teeth on rear sprocket instead! Lol. I moved the forks up in the clamps until they almost touch the bars( second line) and run between 108 and 112 sag to chopper it back out a little. Front ... more »

The " Preston map" that can be found online is a very good map. I cycle between it and the stock map. The stock map pulls through quickly and is faster. The Preston map feels faster, and makes for a very long pull feeling from top to bottom.

Lol the airbag suits they wear nowdays inflate before they hit the ground. Def helps. Suit knows that your falling before u do hehe. Will make its way to Moto when riders realize a 2000 dollar suit is still cheaper than broken bones.

Find someone who will stroke it instead. Better all around instead of just the middle. The Honda has to already be pushing it with the piston weight/ stroke length ratio. A 270 stroker would probably be amazing on those two engines in particular.

My 14 yz450f has been perfect, I wasted 1000 bux on the 2 year warranty lol. A warranty on a two stroke is probably unnecessary. For example, if u don't have documented work orders for a technician changing the top end at the rec service interval, they ... more »

Well inside top ten every Moto he doesn't crash. Possible podium overall with Moto win That's my guess. Whoops are the only thing earth shattering to euros about sx, and the mec won't have them 5 feet deep like atlanta

I do , but at coos Bay. A 450 will lift the tire on roll on past 75 in 5th . Tunnel vision like a 500 two stroke in the sign down portion of the power in 5th. Fun times. All the desert guys know I'm sure. On sand I find the very top part of 5th and approaching ... more »

Here in a review 85mph for the identical gearbox, bigger rear sprocket than the mx model crf450rx is mentioned, and yes it can be overrevved past 85mph. The tooth smaller rear sprocket of the mx model gives it an even higher top speed.

I have also seen Dyno charts of then new 2014 yzf450 turning the Dyno 72mph and in third gear. It was stock geared.

Dirt bike has the crf450rx at 93 mph. The rear sprocket is a tooth smaller on the mx model, same gearbox. 450s do 70 in third nearing the rev limiter. I find it really hard to believe vitals top mx test rider doesn't even comprehend the top speeds of ... more »

Bam. Question answered. Electric won't truly take over until the range, weight and hp line up with the 450 competition. What's sustainable top.speed on the Alta? 60 65 with stock gearing?looking at dyno curves it looks super flat after 55mph . Is that ... more »
