So I stepped on a fc450 last week. Great brakes, very stable at turn in, very controllable power turn out (in map2, didn't try map1), comfy suspension, BTW all this on a very well prepped track with ruts in the corners.
What am I missing: mediocre build quality, weak points, stupid engineering?

Please your opinion. Thanks!!

Nothing missing. Very light for a 450, incredibly smooth power, amazing clutch brakes and handling.

Forks can be a little harsh at times but its the only bike i didnt send out for a revalve in years so it was workable for sure!

Power can almost be too smooth sometimes but nothing u cant solve with more throttle.

There is something drastically wrong with the ignition on that bike; it only fires every other revolution. Other than that, I suppose it's pretty cool. cool
