    First year of the fuel injected motors. Raced this bike 4 years straight in Senior class Colorado Hare, won every race, save for two that I ran out of gas. Bike is indestructible. My mechanic rips down the engine every year and finds nothing to replace or adjust. Could be luck? The separate transmission fluid and motor oil is plain genius. Sure, automobiles have had that for years. With the small capacities in these motocross motors, and the Formula 1 style racing design demands you keep the clutch material out of the crank bearings!!

    The KX450F power and handling continue to amaze me but that extra boost comes at a cost. In one short year the KX needed a top end. Racing several CRF450s for 10 years the motors were solid.

    The Honda Shadow AERO 1100 is an amazing machine that is low maintenance, continues to run perfect, wisper quiet, handles like a dream, and the split crank emits a "potato-potato" vibe that keeps me smiling when I ride past the Harley stores.
