gearbox gearing mod question for crf450r

Recommended Posts

hi all, i love the '02 crf but would like a greater range between 1st and 5th, i.e. like the crf450x. For memory the difference is only about double the ratio, whereas the x model is more like 3 i think. Has anyone changed any gears over on the stock model with those from the x, is it possible? (i think it would be). even if i gear up 5th to make it like an 'overdrive'.

Wow, that is exactly where I was at. I bought my 02 CRF new and wanted wider ratio gears from day one. Baja Designs used to have gears available but stopped making them a few years ago. Unfortunately the X gears won't fit from what everyone says so I recently developed gear sets for the R. My gears change out 2nd through 5th and will fit 02-07, and maybe 08 (not sure yet). I should have parts ready in about two months. I am riding on the prototypes right now. Search "wide ratio" and you can find people have been asking for these for years.

They are working great. Why not come on over and take it for a ride yourself... What is it, a 16 hour flight??

thanks man, i'll be right over ! probably more than 16 hours but its worth it to tweak the crf ! i drove from sydney to melbourne on the xr400 the other day (with stock 2 gallon tank and heaps of stops for gas) which took 12 hours so 16 is not so much, so i might take you up on the offer !

Wow, 12 hours on an XR?? I am sure the plane flight should be no problem then. I will see you soon, LOL!!
