Added reply in a thread 22 Honda 450 ? 8/2/2021 7:15 PM

Is there really that much of a noticeable difference between the 19 WE vs. the 22 R ? Currently have a 20 WE & I’m considering picking up a 22 WE, but feel the 20 WE is the best 450 I’ve ridden to date. Hard to imagine the 22 WE being that much better. ... more »

It doesn’t take much to improve the low end on the 02-07 CR250r case reed engines. With some port work they make more power off idle through the entire rev range vs. the traditional cyl. induction fed engine.

Good info.. These bikes are severely underrated. Once the engine is sorted out it is an exceptional mx weapon. Most of the garbage engine info was started through MXA from what I recall. Since then it has been regurgitated in social media forums.

Just like RC4 said when he went to Zuk that they tried to copy the 04 CRF450r works bike. CR22 also made a comment that Andrew Short helped develop the 12+ KTM after leaving HRC & racing the 09-12 CRF450r works models. He said the newer orange bikes

I think that’s a bike I sold last yr. for a lot less. To many low ballers out there. I doubt he’ll get close to that asking price. I had listed it for $4,500 & barely got that in the 2 yrs. I tried to sell it.

You might want to rewatch the vid posted. It appears KR is being PC about it. He talks about the call he got from Roger that rubbed him the wrong way. I believe the dude has earned the right to ride this mx season after many championships to the orange ... more »

I’m in the minority as well. The 02-07 CR250r is a much better bike with some engine tweaks. Have owned a few YZ250’s from 02-11 models that were mediocre. Once dialed the CR will out shine the YZ in every category an mx bike is judged by. I considered ... more »

I think he looked more in control on the YZF last year at the Millville track. He pushed ET3 in one of the motos going off memory. The Austrian bike looks unsettled when he’s pushing it that hard at those speeds.

Neither. For a new 2t it would definitely be a TM.

I was thinking along those lines that he would’ve been a top 5 guy on a 450. I believe he will get better towards the 2nd half of the season as he heels up.

What a great ride ! One of the toughest & grittiest riders I’ve seen in the last 4+ decades of MX racing. Much respect..

Would you be interested in a PC spark arrestor ? It’s brand new still in the package.
