Kyle just pretty much explained how we all felt about the YZF @ rhe 2019 Vital 450 Shootout when the all new bike came out. Hence, it won the shootout!

So, if ya don't come out of the 1st turn in Epic Fashion and in...what...a top 3 position...or if you don't constantly pass people at a "pre-approved pace"...even if you take your time and you're VERY smart with your attempt(s) to pass guys like the

This year, there's quite a few fast guys that -can- make their way to the front and that's how I look at who's a contender. I'm talking about the guys in the Heats and Mains that are moving forward thru the field. As others have said, if ANY of these

I commented on this in the '18 & '19 shootouts...the Zook is simply easiest to "get around the track" on and you seem to spend less time correcting your lines in the turns.

Take the bolt out of the back mount of the tank and see how it does (many people do this saying that it makes the bike feel less stiff). Some of the factory bikes have the tank mounted with a rubber strap...I believe that's how the RX tank mounts.

The button is awfully damn nice to have when you’re stalled on the track...during a race...and your a short guy...like me!

I spent just over a year on the 2018. I raced Mammoth, Day in the Dirt...all sorts of stuff...and even won a few races on it. It was the 2018 Vital MX 450 Shootout bike. I got it a month or so AFTER the shootout... It had been ridden hard and not maintained

The original Tahitian Red is the best “Honda Red”.

What year and type of frame is it?

Old School? Did someone say,"Old School"? Hannah & Howerton: It don't get any more "Old School". I'm jus' sayin'...

But, maybe it's just because I'm a Zach Osborne fan...that's into Boat Anchors. ... more »
