Added reply in a thread Suspension and triple clamp gurus please help! 7/4/2020 7:33 AM

A washer isn't required on top of the spanner nut in most cases. The once the spanner nut is tightened, and before the top clamp is installed, the stem will turn inside the spanner nut. Once the top clamp is installed, and its retaining nut is torqued ... more »

500£ is not enough to have "the whole motor done" by anyone, anywhere. Further, if the problem truly is that 5th gear does not work, as this individual states, why does the whole motor need to be done? Sounds like a case of buyers remorse to me. Not ... more »

My neighbor across the street. He died from it. Alone, because his whole family was quarantined and not allowed to be with him as he lay there dying.

Phoenix Honda Racing and JCR ran their CRF450RX GNCC bikes with this mod...never had any problems with it that I know of. I did that mod to mine (2018 450RX) and noted the clutch was a little more grabby. I did notice when I pulled the judder spring ... more »

If they do that, they can kiss the turnout goodbye. I'm not sure Id be interested in another Georgia round, and I can't do another Florida round

Added reply in a thread Opinions on running VP T4 fuel on a bran new stock 450. Is it worth it or no? 5/22/2020 2:24 PM

It's worth it to me because I'm racing all over, and I don't want to have to deal with inconsistent fuel/contaminated fuel, etc. T4 also exceeds the manufacturers required octane ratings.

No trouble at all. I raced the stock clutch for two seasons. I just installed a Rekluse Torquedrive Manual...I like it, but I haven't raced it yet. Also, I have an ASV clutch perch and lever on it. This lets me put the clutch lever right where I want ... more »

Don't be surprised to see some unfamiliar faces in both classes...and a reduced number on the line. A good number of the 250 East (and likely 450) riders aren't going to be able to make the races....just not financially feasible

You are right at the top of the weight range it's set up for stock. I was 228lbs when I got my '18 450RX, and I had to get it resprung and revalved. I was clank bottoming everywhere...both ends were too soft even with the compression damping all the ... more »

Freeze protection to -26F is legit. However, 256F boilover is misleading adspeak. The boiling point is increased so much due to being in a pressurized system. Not bagging on Dave or his product, but at sea level in an open container, Engine Ice boils ... more »

Part of that is the way California operates. Darn near anything can be used as a disability there. Blame your legislators for that one. I'm pretty sensitive to abuse of disabled access even now, as my former wife was disabled. She was never able to walk, ... more »

This one gets me...people who make assumptions that just because someone can walk without apparent difficulty, they're not legitimately disabled. There are numerous conditions which are legitimate disabilities...but are not obvious to the casual observer ... more »
