Yep. Not a SH build, but I purchased one in the summer of 2014. It was a Paul Stoffer AF500 conversion that was fabricated & done nicely. The thing would vibrate worse than a 97 CR2 owned. It was an 02 CR2 AF, 08 CRF450r Showas with a 90 CR5 engine.

JB I agree. Have been fortunate to have owned a few bikes through the yrs. with engine / suspension mods.. I remember my 1st bike with mods in the late 80's. It was an 87 CR250r with a ported cyl. & it felt like I was cheating when I raced against ... more »

That depends on the dealer & how you negotiate. I bought one the 1st week of Sept. 2019 when they hit the showroom floors. No dealer within a 100 mile radius was willing to negotiate so I paid full price + fees. I lost out on buying a 19 model because ... more »

Good conversation fellas.. I understand a factory bike is tailored to that particular rider on a particular manufacturer, but was more so wondering how this WE compared to factory bikes of the recent past & how much the gap has been closed. Also, ... more »

Hey Kris Thanks for your response. Curious on your thoughts about current model bikes like the WE. How far advanced are these showroom models in comparison to manufacturer factory bikes say like 10 yrs. back or so ? Some of these modern 450’s are really ... more »

I didn’t see this one as an option so I didn’t vote. Shedding the sensitive skin to grow some thick skin would be the best option.

Good question. I was wondering that myself. Maybe Keefer can chime in & shed some light on it.

Agree. I really like Keefer’s reviews as well because he calls like it is & comes across as a genuine person. Also was thinking the same thing about the clutch cover . They could have used 2 different bikes in the vid..

In case some of you haven't seen the vid.. Agree with his comments on the bike.

Cool stuff. I remember my 1st lunch box in the early 70’s it was a green plastic one with the scooby doo theme. A cousin who is a yr. older had an aluminum one with the speed racer theme.

Yes. Great advice. I’ve been using Wossner forged pistons exclusively for the last 10 yrs. or so with excellent results. OP - Forgot to add in case you’re not familiar with forged pistons it is very crucial to properly warm up the engine (when cool) ... more »

I’ve used oem, wiseco & wossner pistons. I stopped using cast ones in the mid 2000’s. The forged material is much better for durability & longevity. I saw a few friends / fellow riders bikes have cast pistons break apart & have catastrophic ... more »

No worries. I didn’t think there were any major upgrades on the 450 engine besides different mapping.

What are those engine upgrades ?
