Added reply in a thread Its time for PED's testing to step up 2/11/2013 3:23 AM

A factory support rider told me other guys are using HGH and numerous other PEDs. Especially the ones trained by ex cyclists. FIM do random testing no one knows beforehand if they will be tested. What does the AMA do? Anyone who thinks PEDs are not in ... more »

If you are really desperate for a VIN plate contact Phil Denton Engineering he had some made up for older CRs that have them. I think RAL2002 is correct code for the frame too. Powdercoating is normally the most cost effective and best looking finish. ... more »

The guy has always had talent and factory rides but has he really been applying himself before? Maybe the step down from Factory to private team galvansied him into action also maybe a lower basic salary but high bonuses is a major motivation? After ... more »

Maybe Yoshi took all the Suzuki budget. Cant see Suzuki coming up with any more money and why would Yoshi as a private team help another private team?

7.8 lbs on the OEM? Not sure but I thought on the FMF website there was a Titanium SO Single quoted at 4 lbs. Thats got to help if true. Seems some manufactorers are a bit slow coming forward with singles.......

Has anyone weighed the stock system and got any comparisons with the aftermarket replacements being offered? How much weight can be saved?

Anyone noticed how small and compact the new CRF450 looks? Looks like the some of the Pros are having to run high seats on them to get comfortable. New model CRF450 look long and flat at the local tracks....

So true. If it was rough as hell on the approach to those jumps less riders (if any) would contemplate making the leap. Or reface the first jump so it throws you up rather than along. I think even in that video guys were landing much too close to other ... more »

I dont think people always fit a pipe on a 450 for max power. I ran a 2011 yz450f with an OEM system and found it flat out of the corner then surged. Felt horrible and certainly did nothing for confidence. A $300 slip o transformed the bike. Predictable

Yes I do, because MX and Enduro bikes are not Honda's core business and no matter that Honda is a 54 billion dollar company they are not investing in MX like KTM are. KTM's continued investment all around the world is paying off. The japanese factories ... more »

Some of those riders are not even on factory bikes. ie David Philippaerts, Tanel Leok, Steve Ramon Dont think anyone can keep up with the development going in to the KTMs at the moment.
