    Oil Filter in Backwards

    Changing your oil and filter every 5 hrs is silly and a waste. Wait , someone already said that. Worth repeating never the less.

    03 oil filter Replace/Reusable ?

    Soo if i understand correctly, If there is a SSteel aftermarket filter , yes i can swish it out. IF there is an oem paper , of coarse i have to replace it Yes ??

    Custom Gearing Chart

    Cool , good work ! This reminds me of the gearing chart / excel spreadsheet we use in flattrack . you plug in those values , and it gives final drive in every gear with every sprocket combo. Solves gearing quandrys such as, what is the diff between a 14x47 race in 4thgear ,, vs a 14x49 race in 5th ect ect . thanks , 24hrsparkey. PS > ill show your speed chart to my son , as he has a mx looking red 450 , such as in your chart. !

    HR Meter / mouting location

    Going to install an HR meter on my sons bike . Cheap insurance in my opinion. ( i had one on all his dirttrack race bikes , but he is done with that and this 450 thumper monster is for rec riding believe it or not ) I'll try and post a pick of where i put it on his 125 mod . thank you , 24hrsparkey

    Custom Gearing Chart

    Pro SX CRF450/bikes smoking upon start-up/blipping

    Allot of speculation , good and bad guesses. I believe AMAPro SX racers use a spec fuel and this fuel IS checked randomly , or by another racers protest type demand/request. Sooo there would be no 2st oil , dino/synth/bean in the tank for these sx guys. And no go fast additives . Several several reasons for a spec fuel , esp for indoor sx . ( lead , exotic chemicals , benzene and the like) A low friction oil ring in my oppinion is a good guess. I'd know more but im in the AMA dirttrack crowd , youth classes have no fuel spec ( big mistake , i could tell you more about fuel tricks in youth dirttrack racing than you care to hear ) , Pro has a fuel spec. It would be great if a crewmember from a SX team would chime in for the real info ! 24hrsparkey
