So I picked up a used 2017 CRF450 last weekend and rode it yesterday for the first time. It has factory connection suspension done on it and works phenomenally. However, I noticed going through roller whoops that when I pull up hard, as the wheel is coming off of the whoop, there is a light knocking feeling. Like not enough to actually hear it, but you feel it in your hands. Just a light knock like there's a gap somewhere in the front end in something. Any ideas what it could be? I liken it to the feeling of when you're riding a really cheap mountain bike and you pull up theres a clunk as the wheel stays on the ground for a second while the suspension completely extends and tops out (this would be a very exaggerated example as the feeling in my crf forks is much much lighter, but it feels slightly similar and happens under the same type of circumstances).
I'm selling my 2014-Honda-CRF250l. I purchased it from a dealer in GA at the end of April with 1,107 miles on it. Current odometer reads 2,222 but I plan to keep riding it while it's for sale. I love the bike but I've decided I want something even more off-road oriented. Bike is pretty much stock other than sprocket upgrade (13/42) and addition of a Pro Moto Billet 'Rack It' rear rack. I also just replaced the stock tires with 90/10 DOT knobbies (about 320 miles ago. I also purchased a 3 year XtremeGard extended warranty which will transfer to the new owner. I still have the stock tires and sprockets which will go with the bike. I will update with more (cleaner) photos later.
Hi everyone ,
I have checked a CRF450R yesterday with near 150hours on the bike and 70hours on the piston, what disappointed me was the clutch :/ it was really stiff and hard to pull , compare to my yamaha and other bikes that i have tried .
is it a normal problem for 2013 and 2014 CRF450 !? how can it be fixed ?

So my bike is running good, but I think it should have a little more snap to it.
I think its running slightly rich because my spark plug is light black with some oil build up, and when I first start it up and take off its really sputtery and hesitant untill I clear it out and then it feels good.
So I was wondering if I could lean it out one clip position?? Would that be safe or should I leave it running slightly rich???
Thanks for any help!!!
