FMF MegaBomb Header with Yoshi RS-9 pipes

Recommended Posts

You would have if it fit, a pipe.The fmf header or any other full system doesn't do much. I have the yosh/friend has fmf single & twin system not any big change from stock.REMAP 49 tooth rear much better for alittle over a $100/ $1000.My 13 is very strong with the mods I've done, the pipe helps,if I could of stopped the credit card charge from yosh I'd be up $1000 in my wallet. The mega bomb isn't that mega. Do what you want,I'm guessing you don't have a bike,sorry.

Thanks guys.

 

Galligar... I have a 2013 as well.  But I'm a newer rider (having not ridden in 38 years!). I am ridding again because my 13 yr old son (150r) and my 8 yr old (crf80) are getting into riding and I want to ride with them.  We ride mostly at Pala Raceway as we live very close by in Valley Center, CA.

 

But I was just curious actually.  I don't want or need anymore power from this beast.. I should have probably gotten a 250r instead... but I'm getting used to it. I am almost clearing all the jumps at Pala now.

 

Anyway, the whole exhaust issue for me was a way to smooth out the lower end bite. I mean this thing wants to pop a wheelie so hard in 1st gear it's insane! LOL

 

I've taken some lessons with my sons with Travis Preston (pro) (by the way, if you ever want a fantastic teacher, that guy has the gift! SUPER patient and tons of experience).

 

My son is going to race as soon as football is over...and if I grow a set, I might race some too.  But I doubt I will ever need more power from this bike.

inspiremx I ride every week as well@pala,the mixing of the pipes is not the answer, your riding in the wrong gear. Go up a gear ,you should never be in 1st gear on any track @pala 2nd/3rd or change your gearing if it's too powerful. My fire buddy trains/helps preston on fitness,diet,ect.,preston is cool.The fmf,yosh,etc all feel about the same power wise.I'm the big guy on #655,sorry if I hurt your feelings.The post with way you wrote it came across like someone(young) ,dreaming up some magic  combo of parts while reading /or surfing the moto net.Again sorry.

All you need to do is have the ECU remapped and you can calm it down at certain rpms vs throttle position, liven it up at others, etc. Try doing that before buying any parts, changing an exhaust won't get you away from a fuel+spark bark that's hard-wired to your right hand...

Galligar is right, 1st gear is pfu on an mx track... put it in 2nd and slip the clutch if you need to.

Galligar,  no offense was taken.... It's all good.  I don't ride in first there either, I was just amazed when I first got this bike and having not ridden in so long how incredibly powerful it is and first gear is insane torq.  I'll look for you... I used to be a big guy (old body builder) but I just got a thyroid disease (diagnosed in July) so I've lost 30 lbs of muscle and I still can't do an exercise more than walking around the house... (had a doctors appt. today and going to get a radioactive scan to check for cancer)...but when this deal is over, I'll be back at the track for sure.  :-)

Funny you mention that. I just told my wife what I wanted for Christmas... I spoke with Justin Pasquaye over at Tokyo Mods not to far away from me and he said exactly what you said.

      I just bought a Magura hydraulic clutch for my 2014 CRF450R.  Bought it thinking install would be easy, and I'm not sure that's the case now that I have the product in my hands.  I have searched the forums, YouTube, etc for install help specifically for my model year (2013 and 2014 are same really), and haven't found anything specific for the 2013-2014 model install at all.  Instructions from Magura are TERRIBLE, and are not specific at all to the Honda - generic instructions - so I'm debating if I want to return the product, cuz I don't want trouble or a big install job.  Question: for the 2013-2014 CRF450R install ONLY of a Magura Hymec hydraulic clutch - other model years are different and thus it won't be helpful for other model years - do you have any tips or feedback?  My concerns are below...
      1.  The 2014 model has a sleeve behind the clutch actuation arm that the Magura clutch slave cylinder fits into.  Stock, the sleeve holds one end of the cable, with a nut on the other end to keep the cable end tight in the sleeve.  The Magura slave cylinder, however, slides into the mounting sleeve  - but does NOT have a nut: the tension from the clutch actuation arm pulling on the metal Magura slave cyl tip end is apparently supposed to keep the Magura slave cylinder tight in the mounting sleeve.  Q: Will the Magura slave fit in to the mounting sleeve easily, stay tight, and is there any adjustment needed in order to keep the 4-6mm of freeplay that Magura recommends?  How easy is it to get the Magura slave fitted into the sleeve and the metal tip in place?  Is there enough freeplay between slave and tip end to mount in actuating arm AND the holding sleeve, so that the holding sleeve doesn't need to be unbolted?  
      2. The stock clutch cable and OEM setup runs out of the mounting sleeve (see pics marked "metal starts", and then runs through a metal sleeve that routes the cable through the engine compartment - keeping the cable away from the hot parts of the engine case, so as not to melt the cable insulation (I believe).  That metal sleeve is about 6-8 inches in length.  The Magura clutch cable, on the other hand, exits the Magura slave cylinder at an angle - yet has no such metal routing.  I don't think the OEM metal routing sleeve will accept the Magura cable either, so a) the OEM metal routing sleeve would have to be removed first before installing the Magura - and then b) you have to hope that the Magura cable can be routed in such a way with zip ties holding the hydraulic line that line will not touch or be close to the hot metal engine casing as you route it through the engine.  Q: how easy was it to get the OEM clutch cable and metal routing sleeve out?  Easy as unscrewing the nut on the other end of the OEM cable, on the other side of the black rubber cable flange in my pics?   
      3.  My stock clutch pull isn't bad.  I just like the feel of a hydro clutch.  Any feedback on how much better feeling and easier pull will be with the Magura?  What's your feedback on the difference?  FYI, I'm leaving my clutch plates and springs stock.

      We have a 2016 CRF450R with about 11 hours out. never ridden hard always check the oil and change when needed along with the air filter. Took care of the recall that was required as well. Well when riding the bike was stalled out. Went to try and kick start the bike again. the kick start lever just back up jamming my knee into the handle bars and some how ended up cracking the case right by where the kick start goes through the case. Has any one had this happen or heard of this happening? What is the cause?

      Any advice on what should be replaced while I have the top end off for a valve replacement. Will do headgasket and springs of course, anything other parts you would recommend while I'm going at it?
       
      Thanks!

      The dirtbike is on it's forth year right now on the same motor job. I have to jump start it. Is it worth me trading for a 2009 650 brute force with7000 miles? Need some expert advice. Thanks

      Just wondering what you guys do to remove black marks on your seat. My 08 crf450r has the red/black seat, and after each ride there are some black marks on the red from my riding pants. Not scuff marks, more like patches of black residue from my pants rubbing on the seat. I’ve tried the magic eraser which seemed to do the trick, but lately they seem like they aren’t coming off. Also tried scrubbing bubbles with a brush and no luck. Not too worried cuz I have an spare OEM seat, but I’d like to keep this one nice. Any ideas? Maybe I shouldn’t wear black pants?
