We have a 2017, we race it every 2 weeks in A Local.

450 OPEN and +25

With a good racer the bike will pull holeshots and can win the races

I ask the rider all the time do you need more power and he states the 450's have way too much power and
climb out of turns, he thinks he could use the immediate torque of the 450 when immediately transitioning
from braking to accel but thinks 350 is superior in every other way.

But saying that, we understand its harder to race people with instant power and torque compared to him
winding it up and out when the 450 already wound up the instant you hit it.

He does well with it against the big dogs and usually top 3 if he doesn't (crash) or (forget to tighten sprocket bolts heaven forbid!) HAH .

Heard also the 350 for 19 was major improvement but so are 450's.

We'll find out this spring maybe!

Some of texas' fastest pros have used the 350

Shelby Peterson - holeshot lorettas on it 450 A - loved the bike before he hung up the boots

Blake Neiheiser - preferred the 350 over the 450 - could go faster on it - and had great starts, that's a 20-30 place outdoor pro rookie season speed wise

And current texas up comer zane merrett has been ripping on his, won loretta's 450 B title on it, holeshot every moto - and holeshot motos in 450 A on it at loretta's as well with top 5ish speed

The bike is great if you ride it hard.

Shelby Peterson is a pro now? The last time I saw that kid ride he was 12. Time flies.

Also worth mentioning Ricky Renner won a +25 title at Loretta's on one a few years ago. I personally love mine. Growing up on 2-strokes I've always overreved 450s. The 350 is at its best being ridden like a big-bore 250 rather than torqued around like a 450.

Bike pulls holeshots hard core, its super money if you can ride a 250f really good and adapt and ride it the same, bike is awesome with cone valves, and needs a hinson clutch. Bike revs to moon, also timing chain area of motorcycle needs replaced every 40 hrs of hard riding. bar setup is critical, and bike is really fun. Photo
