The z-Start auto clutch. Even thou the manufacturer still has a bug to work out the z-Start put a big smile on my face.

Braking oversized front disk. Incredible feeling and stopping power. I can't live without now.

Winter traction studded tires and grip heaters.

2003 CRF450R :)

As T rex states - the bike!

'01 KTM 520SX!

FOR the bike - Enduro Engineering Clutch slave guard. $50 that took a beating and saved me a few hundred in repairs when my chain snapped.

Not bike - '02 Toyota Tacoma!!

I'm with T- Rex for sure!

I am in total agreement with T-Rex. The 2003 CRF450R is by all means the best bike you can buy right now. I have never ridden anything that even comes close to the power, handling, and the ease of going fast. If I could race mysself against the KX250 I own, I know the CRF would be the faster of the two.

T.Rex is correct, the CRF450R. I have owned some nice bikes and this is the best bike hands down.

The bike, then auto clutch (I have EFM) i am sure they are all good.

Oh, and one more, i didn't buy it,but got it of Santa a Camelbak, they are awesome.

my 03 crf 450 is without a doubt my nicest ride to date!


Motion-Pro chain breaker! :)

Well I just bought and fitted those WC Rad braces, and I thought there was a fire on our property...I started the CRF and off I went to check!!! Across a big steep rocky hill, and it is so dry down under, the rocks came away, and I kinda diagonally side swiped this big bugger of a tree!!! Well, it bent the Sh*T out of the Brace, but it saved the radiator!!! SO, although I am not too happy, it could be worse!!! DINGA

As tex put it. CRF450 2003 with winter studs and auto clutch, lights coming. nuff said.

CRF 450R :) For Sure!

Look below for great products.

If its no good it comes off the list.


Besides the bike I guess from a "value for the money" point of view the msr radiator guards. 25.00 verses the devols that are 60 I think.

Also even a better deal I just thought of was the bar clamps, mounts and oversize renthal bars - all for a 100.00 The bars alone are like 80 or so. Got rid of the cramped feeling.

The best product however is not really a product at all but listening to you guy's right here on T.T.

Don't contaminate our forum good sir or it will be dueling pistols at dawn :)

      I need recommendations on Honda dealers with good Mechanics in Western Washington. I am in Puyallup but will drive for peace of mind. I have never had a dealer do major work on any of my dirt bikes. But long story short I am on a 15 CRF450R and it needs the 5th gear recall done. Any and all info is much appreciated!

      I have a 2005 CRF450R with a Trail Tech fan kit installed. I need a little bit larger tank and would like to know if anyone has an aftermarket tank that fits with the fan kit.
      I dont need a monster 4 gallon, just maybe a 2.4 or 2.7 from IMS would do fine.  I talked with both the tank vendor and Trail Tech and neither could give me any answers.
      Thanks guys.

      So I emailed Factory Connection today to see what spring rate I need for the rear as I’m about 6’2” 220 lbs without gear. I also asked for a baseline front fork PSI to start at. This is what I received:
      The spring series we made for your bike is limited when it comes to larger/stiffer rates.  
      The spring rate you need is 5.9/6.0 range. We don’t sell that over the counter as it requires special installation process.  So we can’t sell the spring “over the counter”.  It would have to be installed at our shop.  
      Fork PSI I would recommend:
      Inner 160 psi
      Outer 11 psi
      Balance 160 psi
      Are they blowing smoke up my ass? What kind of ‘special installation’ could a spring take? I’ve changed and removed them before but not on a 16’ CRF before.
      Also, aren’t those psi settings for the Kawasaki KYB? I don’t think the psf2 have inner/outer/balance do they? Maybe he was having a bad day...or maybe I’m an idiot. FC’s website list there spring as ALS-0059. Can I not just order this spring and install it to set my sag correctly? Help?
