Wondering if anyone might know if the 2018 CRF450R motor mounts are the same as the 2017 RX? I know they put new mounts that offer more flex on the 2018 R.

Has anyone ridden both and could give some feedback on how they compare in regards to rigidity?

Looking to purchase some RX mounts but don't know if I should hold off for the 2018 OEM schematics to be released.

Thanks in advance!

I read in one of the magazines - can't remember which one. They did a test with them, and they allowed the frame to flex a little more. They gave it a thumbs up improvement.

Keefer said he thinks they are the same. Honda didn't confirm or deny it.

Sweet. Sounds like I'll be getting the RX mounts then. Thanks!
