I remember reading rules for either non current or bomber class and it said 9 yrs old and efi bikes were not eligible. That can change between districts obviously though.

If I’m not mistaken Tim was a past mechanic of Justin’s. He does extremely good work, does a pretty large percentage of amateur bikes in Michigan. Mulitiple of his riders got LL titles this year

Added reply in a thread 17 CRF450 Oil 9/1/2017 9:25 PM

I've been using gn4 in my 17 but am making the switch to bel-ray full synthetic. Gn4 only holds an MA rating that was done back in 2004 I believe, whereas belray is MA2. Researched all the oils available locally and belray, although the most expensive, ... more »

I agree with you here. It's been brought up to Pat and he blows it off saying if you don't like it don't jump it. I've jumped it many times but after a close call clipping the top I no longer go for it. Consequences on that jump are too big for the extra ... more »

I have a 17 and prefer riding lower in the rpm range, but I'd recommend dropping a tooth or two on the rear sprocket to stay in second gear a little longer possibly? Might be something to try not sure what conditions you ride in. I normally use 3rd as ... more »

Babbitts sponsored bike running engines from the pro circuit exchange program. His dad Matt does excellent suspension work, joeys lap times running MCR suspension vs factory connection proved that. He's going to do well!

This response is getting old. Different oils require different ratios. Plus I guarantee the new EFI 2 strokes with oil injection will range from 60:1 to 100:1 depending on rpm and not have a single issue. Same as a boat or snowmobile 2 stroke.

I ran mine 60:1 with motorex oil and it ran great, never gave me any issues.

I sold mine with 13.6 hours. Overall liked the bike just missed my 450. I'd rate durability lowers than a Honda for sure though, that's what I'm used to. Bent front axle in a small crash, broken airbox from getting clipped by another bike. Rode great ... more »
