Were those slotted holes on the left airbox number plate there last yr? Looks like a new thing for more air? Its hard to see at this angle what they are.

Do all Huskys have the throttle cable go over the bar pad like that?? That would drive me crazy...

Wonder what feel is accomplished with the triples? Much like the X-trig units?

Some people fit a Kawasaki throttle and cable, but there really isn't a need imo

Also I believe motion pro makes a little longer cable to run it the other way also

Yeah it does look kinda weird but you get used to it and don't really notice it after a while.

It didn't bother me too badly, but when my cable wore out and caused tough throttle twisting efforts (not sure if it was due to the odd routing or just wear/tear) I got the longer cable and domino style throttle to route it between the bars and number plate. Cleaner that way imo, and less in the way.

There were no slotted holes last year. That just looks like lettering to me this year.

Take it to the limit, one more time!

Thought he was talking about just below the seat where the fender and side panel meet.

That is bad ass looking. Adjustable offset triple clamps like the old ktm clamps with the eccentric stem?

1k more than the "stock" bikes. So it's worth it if you are looking at buying a 19 FC/SXF 450.

I've never been crazy about the white plastic, but that is a beautiful bike.

BUILT FOR COMPETITION
At the leading edge of motocross development, Husqvarna Motorcycles introduce a series of considered upgrades to the FC 450 Rockstar Edition. With the distinctive bodywork receiving new graphics, the end result clearly showcases the direction of Husqvarna Motorcycles’ pioneering development.

Replicating the advanced engine technology used by the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team in their championship-winning machines, the FC 450 Rockstar Edition model year 2019 features a new CP forged box-in-box piston and a new PANKL conrod. Providing reduced friction, the new piston and conrod ensure the SOHC engine continues to offer the highest level of performance and reliability available in the market today.

The new FC 450 Rockstar Edition machine features FMF Racing’s Factory 4.1 RCT silencer. The new exhaust system has a blue anodized titanium body and a carbon end cap. In addition, it offers a shorter overall length that makes it less susceptible to damage. Moving the silencer closer to the engine also aids mass centralization.

Made from high-grade aluminum, the all-new CNC-machined triple clamps feature optimally tuned steering stem stiffness as well as perfect alignment of the fork tubes for highly responsive and smooth fork action. Maximum gains in handling are provided by easy offset adjustment between 20 or 22 mm.

The list of upgrades is completed with a new set of anodized D.I.D DirtStar rims and anodized machined hubs. Offering maximum weight savings, this premium-quality combination ensures maximum strength and reduced weight. Tailored to the needs of every aspiring motocross racer, the new FC 450 Rockstar Edition features a carbon fiber reinforced engine protector and a mechanical holeshot device as standard.

FC 450 ROCKSTAR EDITION – HIGHLIGHTS
* • Compact SOHC engine providing class-leading performance
* • New CP box-in-box piston & new PANKL conrod
* • Hydro-formed frame with black premium powder coating

* • Composite 2-piece subframe design

Wow if its only 1k more thats a steal. That box in box piston is much more durable and pankl rods as well. Is it the titanium rods theyre known for? Probably not if only 1k more for everything, but either way thats huge.

Id expect a factory edition to come with the cone valve forks and trax shock but then it would be 5k plus added on. Thatd be factory tho along with this other stuff. For 1k for all this, if true, is great though.

If they don't have to purchase normal suspension and can buy kit stuff in bulk, may not be that much to add on.
