It’s great to see younger moto guys put in the work to learn rally. How old is Mason Klein? He’s on a KTM Rally replica- maybe he bought it from Skyler?

That’s the proper term- “topping out”. It’s very common with 49mm Showas on Honda dirt bikes. I was hoping the ‘21 wouldn’t do this because it has an updated free piston.

Here's the Cliff Notes: The L model and the X model have the exact same chassis, engine, suspension, airbox, wheels, brakes, controls, plastics and fuel tank. Main difference is wire harness, ECU, exhaust, subfame, headlight. Enjoy!

That particular light is a Squadron with S2 mounted above it . The S2 beam angle can’t be adjusted independently from the Squadron( unfortunately)- so the beams can be adjusted using the different lenses. You’ll see a lot of folks use the yellow lens ... more »

That is funny! After everyone’s advice you are going with the L haha. The top 5 mods are “make it like the X”. (I’m only half-joking

Here's the bike TeamGreen will be riding on the Rip 2 Cabo in a week and a half. CRF450X/R/L which is mostly stock- in a sneaky good way. We did a frame-up prep, swingarm mod, chassis mods, and select aftermarket parts. It's very "ridable", which is

It is a pig. But that said, you should see Ian Young ride his 450L on the national track at Glen Helen. Big strong dudes don't seem to mind the weight of that bike.

If you want an unbiased recommendation, contact Jimmy Lewis with DirtBikeTest Nobody rides more off-road bikes than Jimmy.

For a guy your size, you would fit the CRF450X well. I build bikes for customers- mostly Honda but I ride the other brands on occasion. The CRF450X is a great platform. It's almost identical to the CRF450RL, just less "stuff". Put a license plate holder

Also, IMO Jason Anderson would absolutely shred on a HRC CRF450R.

Roczen's chassis looked so good (smooth, compliant) at the Atlanta rounds. Plus, his riding technique looks so effortless
