450x transmission in a '09 450r?

Recommended Posts

Right of hand does anyone know if this is possible? If the X's have a wider ratio transmission, can they interchange? I'm trying to get this thing up to 100 miles per hour all day long.

I looked into this when i had an 08450R and general opinion seemd to be NO.

I now have an 02 to play with so will be interesting to see if there are any options for regearing it or if its just the same scenario.

Not possible.

If you have an older R, Baja Designs made a wide ratio tranny for it initally, but when Honda came out with the X they quit selling it.

It was cheaper to throw the R parts on the X to make it run like the R than it was to put the wide ratio tranny in the R to get it geared like an X.

I would listen to eastreich, hes the man in the know on these things.

I will just stick to a 14/48 and keep my pennies for other upgrades :banghead:
