The wr 450 is now one month old and was able to take it out into the Mendocieno forrest after a all night rain, What a blast!! EVO X slip on, J-D Jets with Indys chart as well as a quick shot produced solid power that came on smooth and strong. 13/51 gearing allowed me to lift the front end up and over wet spots the size of a small pond at any speed. Feels like a 4 speed with a granny which was great for the tight muddy spots. Glad I choose this bike and highly recommend it for those looking for a dual sport with great off road useability. Hope to hit the deserts later this winter and see if it works as well in the sand and huge whoops!!!!!
