I put a hinson single spring setup in my 2010 this weekend
I need recommendations on Honda dealers with good Mechanics in Western Washington. I am in Puyallup but will drive for peace of mind. I have never had a dealer do major work on any of my dirt bikes. But long story short I am on a 15 CRF450R and it needs the 5th gear recall done. Any and all info is much appreciated!
I have a 2005 CRF450R with a Trail Tech fan kit installed. I need a little bit larger tank and would like to know if anyone has an aftermarket tank that fits with the fan kit.
I dont need a monster 4 gallon, just maybe a 2.4 or 2.7 from IMS would do fine. I talked with both the tank vendor and Trail Tech and neither could give me any answers.
Complete 2009 CRF 450r cylinder head with valvetrain.
So I emailed Factory Connection today to see what spring rate I need for the rear as I’m about 6’2” 220 lbs without gear. I also asked for a baseline front fork PSI to start at. This is what I received:
The spring series we made for your bike is limited when it comes to larger/stiffer rates.
The spring rate you need is 5.9/6.0 range. We don’t sell that over the counter as it requires special installation process. So we can’t sell the spring “over the counter”. It would have to be installed at our shop.
Fork PSI I would recommend:
Inner 160 psi
Outer 11 psi
Balance 160 psi
Are they blowing smoke up my ass? What kind of ‘special installation’ could a spring take? I’ve changed and removed them before but not on a 16’ CRF before.
Also, aren’t those psi settings for the Kawasaki KYB? I don’t think the psf2 have inner/outer/balance do they? Maybe he was having a bad day...or maybe I’m an idiot. FC’s website list there spring as ALS-0059. Can I not just order this spring and install it to set my sag correctly? Help?
