I put another Camso DTS 129 kit on my brother in law's 2008 CRF 450X that he traded a cow/beef for. While the CRF is 9 years older than the 2017 RR-S 500, the RR-S is just superior in every way. I'll do a review either later in this thread or I'll start another one but at least for today, today was the best riding I have ever done. Ever. It was like my entire life was practice for all the pure powder riding we did on the snowbikes today. I love dirtbiking, it has always been the most fun thing I can do but now snowbiking has taken over as it combines the fun, the shifting, all the positives of the dirtbike but with none of the jar and jolt, no roots, rocks, holes, whoops, just soft, cushy snow to power on through or up, or down. It is the addiction to beat all addictions and the best part is that all I can do is look forward to the next day to ride, before I know it, winter will be over and we can ride the dirt again and not be so cold while doing it. I got a RotoPax 1 gallon tank, then got a 2 gallon RotoPax storage box and the extension to make the storage box tighten down with the twist on clamps-which I've been loving. It makes using the gas can and the storage just so easy and the hard mount is fantastic. We had ridden about 20 miles and I had emptied almost the entire gallon into the bike so I now know that I can go about 40 miles on a tank and will be able to go 20 miles on the gallon of reserve in the Rotopax. Generally, the track kit is sucking 50% of the power as I might get 50 mph on the trail, maybe 55 or 60 top speed, and while I get about 40 mpg on the street/trail, I'm getting 1/2 of that in/on the snow, which is no problem, just that everything gets cut by 1/2 on the snow. Stock for stock, all the Beta's controls, and how the bike feels, at least on the snow, is way better than the Honda's. The CRF450X is carbureted and does not have a hydraulic clutch, and as it does not have either a quick turn throttle or jimmy twister, the entire bike feels so crude compared to the RR-S. The 2008 Honda has also been ridden very easily its entire life as evidenced by how clean the motor is. My motor, from going through all the puddles, mud puddles, swamp puddles, every kind of dirty water has gotten onto my motor and has stained or etched the metal unlike the CRF that is almost showroom clean despite being 9 years older than the 2017 Beta. Oh well. One area where both the bikes are more equal is in power. The Honda has great power but I also feel that the Beta could take it in a dragrace or any kind of roll-on, either way, my BIL and I agreed that we do not yearn for more power with either bike. More tomorrow.
