I've been working on this 2013 Crf450r this winter. When I got it, the plastics were a mess and seat was destroyed. I still need to put a new throttle cable on it as well as the heavier rated shock spring that's sitting in the garage. Also need to finish applying the graphics, but this is the progress so far. Let me know what you guys think.

Looks sweet! I would have gone and gotten the frame and swing arm powder coated black and went with black number plates! Love the look of the flo yellow though. Looks awesome.

Thanks man! The powder coat will probably happen next year as I am a huge fan of the black powdercoated look too. There was just so much to do to get it to where it's at that the funds ran dry.

Tore the bike back down to finish up some needed work. Started with putting a new heavier spring rate shock spring. Then got into the throttle body and replaced the throttle cables (had some "operator error" issues with that lol). Replaced all radiator hoses with some sharp new blue hoses. Did some work to the header and chose a black high temp spray and heated in a kiln. Will be getting rid of the dual exhaust and going with a single yoshimura muffler. Still need to finish up applying all of the graphics on the plastic as well, but it's coming along nicely. Will post more pics as more progress is made.

How do you plan on fitting a single yoshi can??? Are you putting a 2012 muffler while keeping the stock header? Great build by the way! I love how you included the light blue, most guys would've gone with just black and flo

Thanks man! It's turning out pretty well I think! I got the yosh muffler from the guy I got the bike from. He said that it just slips right on to the stock header. I haven't gotten it on yet, so I'm not quite sure if it works or not haha. I've kind of just been doing a process of elimination with everything as I'm not terribly familiar with the Hondas. If the can doesn't fit, I'll probably just throw the duals back on it. Just wondering, but do you have experience with the Hondas? Are you familiar with how the exhaust works? I'm asking in all honesty because I'll take whatever advice I can get with this bike.
