A SiNi would probably last pretty well but I think you'd get better traction with a rubber compund.:p

Alot of guys around heree seem to like Maxxis IT tiers for a decent compramise between traction and longevity.

As mentioned above the Maxxis IT will last a long time, however it is heavy and does lose a lot of that "new-tire bite" fairly shortly. This is all in my opinion of course. I am partial to Bridgestone, but have been trying out Pirelli meats with good results so far. Still too early to tell though.

We are having great luck with bridgestones new 401/402 combos. Especially in the rear 120 size!

I have great luck with Kenda tires. But you're dreaming if you think anything is going to last more tha a season.

Your 12T sprocket may cause premature wear on the chain pad on the swingarm - I'd keep a close eye on it.

By a season do you mean a whole year? I would like to get 20 tyres to last me a season but I dont hink that is going to happen, I would love to find one that lasted that long.

Check out the new Dunlap 952. Intermediate/soft but made with tougher compound. Everything I read on it says it is lasting a lot longer then most tires.

I think I read a write up in Motocross Action where they tested it and said it looked like new, after quite a bit of riding.

The 952 performs similiar to the 756, but last twice as long. Its a great tire for soft to intermediate soil.

I've got some time on Bridgestone 403/404 now and these are very excellent tires in intermediate terrain. Very good on rocks, good on blue groove, good in sand and silt. I'm a Dunlop guy pretty much but the Bridgestones hook-up and wear like iron.

I guess the question is also what is the best tyre for certain conditions. I don't ride track with my '09. Only bush riding which is medium to hard soil. Any recommendations? :)

Michelin MH3. It's a versatile tire with a hard compound that will even allow you to crossover into a little mud if needed. I get more then twice as many rides out of the MH3 than I do with any of the Dunlops (756, 773, or 952).

In my opinion, the only good tires that Bridgestone makes are the 101/102 and they are for mud.

      I just bought a Magura hydraulic clutch for my 2014 CRF450R.  Bought it thinking install would be easy, and I'm not sure that's the case now that I have the product in my hands.  I have searched the forums, YouTube, etc for install help specifically for my model year (2013 and 2014 are same really), and haven't found anything specific for the 2013-2014 model install at all.  Instructions from Magura are TERRIBLE, and are not specific at all to the Honda - generic instructions - so I'm debating if I want to return the product, cuz I don't want trouble or a big install job.  Question: for the 2013-2014 CRF450R install ONLY of a Magura Hymec hydraulic clutch - other model years are different and thus it won't be helpful for other model years - do you have any tips or feedback?  My concerns are below...
      1.  The 2014 model has a sleeve behind the clutch actuation arm that the Magura clutch slave cylinder fits into.  Stock, the sleeve holds one end of the cable, with a nut on the other end to keep the cable end tight in the sleeve.  The Magura slave cylinder, however, slides into the mounting sleeve  - but does NOT have a nut: the tension from the clutch actuation arm pulling on the metal Magura slave cyl tip end is apparently supposed to keep the Magura slave cylinder tight in the mounting sleeve.  Q: Will the Magura slave fit in to the mounting sleeve easily, stay tight, and is there any adjustment needed in order to keep the 4-6mm of freeplay that Magura recommends?  How easy is it to get the Magura slave fitted into the sleeve and the metal tip in place?  Is there enough freeplay between slave and tip end to mount in actuating arm AND the holding sleeve, so that the holding sleeve doesn't need to be unbolted?  
      2. The stock clutch cable and OEM setup runs out of the mounting sleeve (see pics marked "metal starts", and then runs through a metal sleeve that routes the cable through the engine compartment - keeping the cable away from the hot parts of the engine case, so as not to melt the cable insulation (I believe).  That metal sleeve is about 6-8 inches in length.  The Magura clutch cable, on the other hand, exits the Magura slave cylinder at an angle - yet has no such metal routing.  I don't think the OEM metal routing sleeve will accept the Magura cable either, so a) the OEM metal routing sleeve would have to be removed first before installing the Magura - and then b) you have to hope that the Magura cable can be routed in such a way with zip ties holding the hydraulic line that line will not touch or be close to the hot metal engine casing as you route it through the engine.  Q: how easy was it to get the OEM clutch cable and metal routing sleeve out?  Easy as unscrewing the nut on the other end of the OEM cable, on the other side of the black rubber cable flange in my pics?   
      3.  My stock clutch pull isn't bad.  I just like the feel of a hydro clutch.  Any feedback on how much better feeling and easier pull will be with the Magura?  What's your feedback on the difference?  FYI, I'm leaving my clutch plates and springs stock.

      We have a 2016 CRF450R with about 11 hours out. never ridden hard always check the oil and change when needed along with the air filter. Took care of the recall that was required as well. Well when riding the bike was stalled out. Went to try and kick start the bike again. the kick start lever just back up jamming my knee into the handle bars and some how ended up cracking the case right by where the kick start goes through the case. Has any one had this happen or heard of this happening? What is the cause?

      Any advice on what should be replaced while I have the top end off for a valve replacement. Will do headgasket and springs of course, anything other parts you would recommend while I'm going at it?
       
      Thanks!

      The dirtbike is on it's forth year right now on the same motor job. I have to jump start it. Is it worth me trading for a 2009 650 brute force with7000 miles? Need some expert advice. Thanks

      Just wondering what you guys do to remove black marks on your seat. My 08 crf450r has the red/black seat, and after each ride there are some black marks on the red from my riding pants. Not scuff marks, more like patches of black residue from my pants rubbing on the seat. I’ve tried the magic eraser which seemed to do the trick, but lately they seem like they aren’t coming off. Also tried scrubbing bubbles with a brush and no luck. Not too worried cuz I have an spare OEM seat, but I’d like to keep this one nice. Any ideas? Maybe I shouldn’t wear black pants?
