Added reply in a thread First 18' race for me this year cut short. Engine 3/26/2018 5:20 PM

I see dudes all the time, starting their 4strokes up in the parking lot and letting them run for several minutes while putting their gear on. I just shake my head and laugh. It's not a damn corolla, these things overheat quick when not moving.

Added reply in a thread New 450 weight. 3/25/2018 2:53 PM

Good post about weight. I've owned 1of each of the last 3 gens ( 07, 10, and 17). I disagree with the original poster a little. I LOVE my 07. Been riding and fixing it for 10 years now, over 300 hours on the original trans. The bike is good, and the ... more »

DawnPatrol, when I say front wheel bias, it means the chassis puts inertia and drive into front wheel more than the back wheel. You can really feel that on the Honda's, they like to steer with the front wheel. Since that crf450 is sold, it doesn't really ... more »

A low hour 17 crf450 with the estart is a smoking deal. It is NOT a lazy engine. I just broke mine in last weekend and it can put around if you want, but when you crank the wrist things happen, fast. If you have any skill and want to ride at speed, you ... more »

I went through this same torturous decision for the last 2 seasons. I turn 42 this year, and figure I only have about 4-6 "good" years left in me, so I pulled the trigger finally. Bought a leftover 17 crf450. Being a bigger guy, I need to upgrade certain ... more »

So at this point, is the facebook post of little to no concern? I just got a 17, and after break in I was going to use t6. This is my first Honda without separate engine and trans oil. I've put over 200 hours on my 07 with t6 and not one sign of failed ... more »

After over a year of trying to decide what to do, it came down to a matter of $$$$ for me, since my wife and I are actively looking for our next home. Leftover 17, just picked her up Saturday. My first new bike in 10 years (07crf450). I'll be 8500 in

My quick notes. As the sand section breaks down, lap times have dropped a little. Ferrandis, forkner, and davalos are my top 3 (if forkner doesn't crash). Eli is untouchable if he gets a top 5 start, seely has looked great already. If marv isn't hurt, ... more »

was a glancing blow but he immediately chopped the ... more »

Wow... some idiot was on the side of the track, talking to a mechanic, right out of the race line (not behind barrier). Musquin just clipped him.. You could tell something was wrong immediately. He pulled off and left the track. Looked like foot or ankle ... more »
