Hell NO Tell Me You Didn't Old-Man

Sorry guys I have to say old-man is going to the dark side of riding. I started with a little bling bling today.

I have my head over at Agent Smith Racing have new valves put in. When pulling off the head I saw how dirty the bike looked. Most of the aluminum parts are stained from the dirt in Baja. So I got out my buffing wheel and hit a few parts. I think I will hit more before I'm done. Here's the braces that go to the head. Maybe a little of the frame will be next. :eek:

I know real riders don't ride with bling. I'm going to because it might help when I get lost out riding. :thumbsup:

lol. so what are you gonna have AS put in it?

Here's the parts list I got.

I went with the TRX 450R valves

Valve, In ~ 14711-HP1-670 2 each $ 20.19 = $ 40.38

Valve spring, In ~ 14751-MEB-670 2 each $ 6.57 = $ 13.14

Valve Stem Seal ~ 12209-KL4-005 2 each $ 4.82 = $ 9.64

Cotters, Int ~ 14781-MEB-670 4 each $ 2.87 = $ 11.48

Retainer, In ~ 14771-HP1-670 2 each $ 4.69 = $ 9.38

To do the Exhausts ( reusing the valves themselves )

1. Springs EX 14752-MEY-670 2 each $ 4.46 = $ 8.92

2. Retainer EX 14772-MEB-670 2 each $ 4.43 = $ 8.86

3. Cotters EX 14781-MAT-000 4 each $ 2.18 = $ 8.72

4. Valve seals 12209-GB4-682 2 each $ 4.06 = $ 8.12

      Hey guys I could really use some help. I bought a 2005 CRF 450x that has an aftermarket air filter, full FMF exhaust system (pipe and header), removed backfire screen, and removed air snorkel. Bike idles and starts just fine, but when I hold the throttle anywhere from barely at all to about 1/2 it bogs, wants to die, and backfires. Seems like lean running conditions to me because if i leave the choke on the problem mostly goes away. Additionally, if i move the air screw out almost all the way (to the point where it could vibrate off), it seems to clean up a little bit. I am trying to determine whether bigger jet(s) would fix it or if its something else. My dad thought it might be the float level, but I'm really not sure. Thanks in advance for your help!

      hi, I'm buying a crf450x and this is the first 450x I'm gonna own but i was a bit confused on one of the pictures. i checked on other crf450x pictures and could not find this on any of the others. There is a gap right below the air filter and above the swingarm and I was wondering if it was normal. 
       
      Thanks!!!

      I have a 05 CRF450X that was just rebuilt that is not starting via its electric start. I can start it with the kick starter as well as a rolling start down a hill though. Once started it seems to run just fine. I have it at a bike shop right now and they are stumped as well. So far I know the battery has been tested/replaced, the carb has been cleaned, jetting is good, and they have also tested the starter motor and things all look okay. Any ideas where to look next?
