450X top speed?!!!

Recommended Posts

It does have a five speed. Try using the fifth gear. You'll be amazed at how fast it can go.

I was going to say - 77 mph is pretty poor by any standards. My old XR400 was good for +100 mph with the stock tall gearing (admittedly valve bouncing with head tucked down behind bars and a tail wind) so the CRF should do at least that. :thumbsup:

Yo Shady, OK after the Valium and Beer , then what do you have planned for the Baseball Bat?? :ride: Would it be this?? :thumbsup:

thats actually a sleeve of spaghetti noodles. I don't know why they are on my desk but it does need to be cleaned. I guess this is where the Valiums and percocets come into play.

My stock 450x with only JD jetting kit and airbox mod can do 70 mph. up one tooth on the front and I got 77, tops.

You kidding? I think everyone is right and you need to shift up another gear! :thumbsup: I did 80 on my X in DEEP sand, stock gearing. (I didnt have my steering damper on yet either! scarry!!!! :ride: )

sounds about right, my X in full rally trim, modified das 95 mph with 14-48 but I reckon with 15-48 it shoud do about 105 tops.

You guys seriously think 105 is the top speed?? I was behind a guy in an XR650, when I was doing 60 in 5th, I would accelerate and it would PULL me right up to him. This bike has a lot of power, I would say if you would gear it for top speed only, you could go a LOT faster than 105 MPH.

PS where are the zannies?

Not in full rally trim and on a loose gravel road. top speed? yeah probably higher with a full fairing, a 500 cc 2 stroke will do about 180-190 kph, but they are faster than a 450 thumper. Dont forget KTM 660 top out at 170 in full rally kit.

top speed, no! Street tires with different gearing and it will do more then that. But they are talking in dirt/sand which is a lot of drag. I get a little nervous on the dirt roads at about 70. The tires arent balanced and i can feel them wobble and hop

13/51 Stock = 3.923

13/48 = 3.692

13/47=3.615

14/51=3.642 damn close to 13/48, just buy CS sprocket for $20.00

Hey you are right, now why would I think that it was a Baseball Bat and that you would do some damage with it?? :thumbsup: Oh yeah I have heard a story or two about you. :ride:
