Schwartz also had top 10s at Thunder Valley where HP is always in short supply and in the east at High Point on that powerless yellow pig. Dude is ripping in any condition.

I just was watching this vid where AJ Cantanzaro rode a '21 CRF450 back-to-back with a '95 Cr250 (ripping damn good on both), and aside from the primitive brakes, he picked the old 250 as his winner of the two for rideability: "I could totally ride this ... more »

Correct. And I don't see how without some sort of high shutter slow motion footage, one would be able to say whether the chain failed prior to derailment or as a result of it.

Added reply in a thread FXR Chapparal Honda chain? 7/19/2021 10:08 AM

But how would Schock know that either? If indeed the chain is demonstrably broken and bound up, how would one assume the bind up as the cause of the breakage vs the breakage being the cause of the bind up?
