Got to ride my new 05 tonight

Recommended Posts

I can't believe how fast and how quick it revs,I thought my tricked out 02 was fast but not nearly as fast as the new one,100ft tripples were done with ease and instead of signing off and getting flat on top it keeps pulling,the last 1/8th throtle is like afterburner,get the puppy straight and grab a hand full of throtle and what a rush,you definatly have to respect it,the suspension isn't too bad either,after break in I plan on setting the sag and such,my buddy bought one as well,his turns very well ,but mine with the 20mm clamps off my 02 really carves a turn,lets say I'm very happy with my new 05 CRF 450.

I have a set of 20mm clamps, and have been wondering if they will work ok on the '05. I was thinking the new axle placement might make it too aggressive. What do you think of it so far?

I have 20 mm emig clamps it turn great and so far no headshake,my 93 Cr250 as well as my 93 CR500 both would shake their heads once in a while,the track I rode at wasn't prepped and hard pack with large breaking bumps,no ill manners so far plan on racing it tonight on a prepped track we'll see how it works,but this puppy will run it's much faster than my massaged 02 CRF 450.
