Added reply in a thread Looks Like Ralph Is Out... 1/7/2021 11:14 AM

Nobody cares, but for the record I though Ralph was good in many ways, the few mistakes didn’t bother me at all. He is a fan of the sport and a knowledgeable and likable human.

Confucius say “keep old rig, buy new bike.”

Sums up 2020. 👌🏻

Stock. Brakes just slow you down.

Added reply in a thread 2021 Honda CRF450R First Ride Opinion 12/27/2020 10:41 AM

Any insiders that know for sure if the later model 2021 deliveries had the ECU re-flashed at the factory? I believe they were based on riding a very early delivery vs. my later (couple weeks ago) delivered 21. The later model I don’t notice the issues ... more »

Not a bad idea. Suspect you need a PC laptop (not Mac) and won’t have the good fuel and ignition settings unless someone posts them. Would be a learning curve of trial and error, but doable, not rocket science. Would almost want to test in a field somewhere ... more »

Added reply in a thread Factory Edition VS. Works Edition 12/26/2020 3:08 PM

The KTM and new 2021 Honda CRF450R couldn’t be more different. I own a 19.5 KTM 450 FE. I just bought a 2021 CRF450R. Not a Works Edish, just std. To sum up my opinion without going into a ton of detail the Honda is more of a young guy bike, the KTM ... more »

2010 YZ450F. Did a lot to that bike to improve handling and never could get it right. It was a step backwards from my 2008 YZ450F.

Added reply in a thread Here is the 2021 450 Shoutout?? Deleted?? 12/20/2020 6:43 PM

Is the updated written 450 test posted on the site somewhere? Did a search and lead me to this thread. Looking for some baseline settings. Edit: found it https://m.vitalmx.com/features/Vital-MX-450-Shootout-Full-Test,7152

Added reply in a thread Show us your 2021 crf450 12/19/2020 9:57 AM

What are you Honda faithful seeing on need for top ends, bottom ends, valve adjustments/life, clutch, on the 17 and up 450 engines? Serious question because I’m thinking of trying the new Honda. Currently on KTM and the durability is excellent and Delwest ... more »

Added reply in a thread Do you do anything special to your brand new bike before taking it out? 12/7/2020 4:10 PM

Didn’t see it mentioned, brake cleaner on the rotors, wipe those down. Also stock air filters sometimes are lacking oil. As others have said, pretty sad amount of grease from factory. KTM does a little better job than Japan bikes. I always get suspension ... more »

Added reply in a thread Safety improvements to work on in SX/MX 12/1/2020 2:09 PM

Agree to disagree on slowing bikes. (Didn’t thumbs down you BTW). “Easy for inexperienced riders to do incredibly stupid things.” Agree! They shouldn’t be on bikes they can’t handle. It is true and not weird that the engine inertia, gyroscopic effect ... more »

Added reply in a thread Migraines from motocross 12/1/2020 11:27 AM

Was just going to mention this. Clenching is a huge contributor to massive headaches and a mouth guard could possibly be a solution. Could be clenching in the pits, on the way to the track, etc. I don’t suffer headaches while riding, but if concentrating, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Safety improvements to work on in SX/MX 12/1/2020 10:03 AM

This topic comes up all the time and I agree with virtually all the comments except pointing at 450’s as part of the problem. These are race bikes, your throttle hand controls the acceleration and speed. If a rider can’t control himself then yes, consider ... more »

Added reply in a thread Will the 2021 KTM Factory Edition be a new model? 11/20/2020 5:39 PM

If true this totally blows my upgrade plan. 😩

Added reply in a thread Austrian model in Japan - Suzuki 11/17/2020 4:03 PM

It’s an amazing bit of human psychology how the motocross community wants to “save” a multi billion dollar company, “save” the sport, etc. Suzuki is the rescue dog of motocross.

Added reply in a thread The Godfather Banned from perris & statefair MX Tracks 11/14/2020 4:25 PM

Right?! Haha. Many tracks here in Texas have zero flaggers on practice days. Get real good at looking way TF ahead. Many also have zero EMT’s on practice days. I don’t agree with it one bit - it’s the Wild West out here!

Added reply in a thread Ryno's Post about the Sport 11/12/2020 9:02 AM

Would be interested in hearing your plan, but in general respectfully disagree with your post. In modern times F1 and Nascar adjust the rules so no one team doesn’t gain a huge advantage. They want close racing. Somewhat related to what happened in 1986 ... more »

5 months after last post and still no info on a 21.5 450 FE. What gives?

Added reply in a thread The ONLY way to grow the “sport” 11/4/2020 11:53 AM

Something that might help and possibly grow the sport at the Pro level... Been a lot of talk about 250’s in SX running all the rounds. I don’t like that. Also there are so many top 450 guys indoors and out that many bad ass riders will rarely get on ... more »
