New TC450 Pics

Recommended Posts

Just a few pics of the new TC450. I went to the forest use meeting instead of riding this weekend. I wanted to ride but figured the meeting was one of the few things worth cancelling a ride for. Too bad they are shutting down the forests . . .

And yes I have properly routed the front brake line since taking these pics.

Can't wait for this weekend to ride.

Sweet ride!, Where did you get the headlight? Did you have to change /modify the stator?

I have always wondered why the 450's have the gold fork bottoms and the 250's dont? is it because of the 50mm forks?

Rikker,

The headlight is the Acerbis DHH. I think they look cool and they do put out quite a bit of light. I wouldn't run baja but for trail rides at night it is perfect. All I added was a voltage regulator and wiring harness from Husky. Those parts cost less than $100. FWIW, I haven't actually hooked the lights up yet, but the dealer runs a 65 watt light on his TC and it works fine. This light runs two 35 lamps. I just got the bike in the middle of last week and still need to get the headlight and tailight installed. I should get that done one night this week.

Great pics, that's a sweet ride.

What did you find out about about areas closing at the forrest meeting?

I just got done hooking up the headlight and taillight. At idle the headlight is a little bit more dim than at a few thousand rpm, but it certainly puts out plenty of light even then. The only drawback to this light is that a fair amount of light spills out the back of the bulbs behind the housing and would be very distracting at night. I now remember that on my 2004 TE250 I put a piece of duct tape across the tops of the lamps to block the light. If I add a trail computer, it will do that for me. Finally all the accessories are installed and it is ready for ride time.

Putting on the UFO enduro rear fender / taillight would really cap it off. If you even come up north to Walker Valley, give me a holler.

I just got that LED fender/tailight installed. I'll get one more pic tonight and post it. Walker sounds like fun. Do you expect it to be packed this weekend? I may head to Eastern Washington and take the old Sea Doo out. I know of a couple of lakes that are still pretty empty on the 4th weekend.

I usually go early saturday mornings, and it's not too bad. It can get busy by afternoon, and sundays are often a madhouse. By going early I often get in 2 or 3 hours of riding and never see another bike, unless I'm within 1/4 mile of the parking area.

You haven't said how you liked the suspension.

Didn't you send it off to Les?
