    Damn... Drilling a hole in the tank would be a bad idea...

    Keep stock exhaust but incease performance?

    The FMF Q4 + JD Jetting (or Vortex) with insert isn't that loud and has a significant power gain. It also pulls a little harder in the low and mid RPM with the insert than without. (It pulls harder at redline without).

    Crf450l jd jetting

    It's the green/blue zone (4th zone) that needs to be increased for the twichy throttle, not the green-only zone. This is a copy-paste from part of a previous post I made, using settings of 3.5, 4, 4.5, 6, 3.5, 3. Here's the link to the complete post. Something to take note about the JD is that the order of the zones on the instructions sheet and on the programming sequence are in a different order than how they are triggered while riding. For example, when programming or looking at the sheet you see the following zones :1 GREEN, 2 YELLOW, 3 RED, 4 GREEN/BLUE, 5 YELLOW/BLUE, 6 RED/BLUE. When riding from idle to full throttle they are triggered in the following order (Ignore zone 6 because it's not really a zone): 4 Green/Blue - Idle (setting of 6) 1 Green - Low throttle (setting of 3.5) 5 Yellow/Blue - Low-medium throttle (setting of 3.5) 2 Yellow - Medium throttle (setting of 4) 3 Red - Full throttle (setting of 4.5) 6 Red/Blue - accelerator pump So effectively the sequence of fuel adjustments are triggered as follows when riding: 6, 3.5, 3.5, 4, 4.5. You can see that it's a gradual progression except for the idle which was way too lean from the factory. For the complete post see about half way down this page.

    Vortex ECU for the 2019 Honda CRF450L!

    I'm surprised we're not seeing more people who had the JD Jetting and upgraded to the Vortex on here. I am still wondering what kind of change I would get if I did the upgrade. There has to be more people that ran the JD while they waited for the Vortex?
  5. It definitely makes a big difference. I have no regrets buying it.
  6. Sorry for the long wait for the final results, I was too busy riding 😜 In short, the FMF is awesome! It added more power than I was expecting. There are a lot of claims all over the internet about how much power there is to gain. I read a post somewhere on this forum that with an exhaust and fuel controller 4th gear pulled like 3rd gear did stock. I would say that it's not quite that much but pretty close. Lifting the front in 3rd to get over obstacles got a whole lot easier. As for the sound, with the quiet insert/spark arrestor it's quieter than I was expecting. It still has a good sound and is definitely louder than stock but it won't piss off the neighbors unless it's your intention to do so. Without the insert it's loud like a motocross bike. There is a SIGNIFICANT difference in loudness with and without the insert. I don't know how this would compare to the Yoshi but I'm glad I picked the FMF. Something I noticed that I was not expecting though is that it pulls harder in the trails (3rd gear lift to get over obstacles) with the insert than without. It however pulls harder at top RPM without the insert (last 10-15km/h before speed cutoff). This has all been precisely measured by my butt-ometer so take it for what it's worth. Opinions are like butt-holes, everybody's got one and they all stink lol. I initially planned to leave the insert out but I think I'm gonna leave it in as I feel it drives better in the trails. The idle sounds much deeper without it but the sound is decent with the insert as well (it doesn't sound like a pop can in a blender like some bikes do). Running it without the insert doesn't melt the turn signal but will make the lens black after a while. I had to use brake cleaner to clean it off. I can't imagine this would be a good thing long-term. I'm running the JD Jetting with the settings 4.5 - 6.5 - 5 - 4.5 - 4.5 - 3 One thing I noticed, the sticker on the end cap has a bit of a wrinkle because they're putting a flat sticker on a round surface. It's a minor thing but for the price they go for you'd think they would have this figured out. As for installation, it's pretty straight forward. There was a small tab welded on the pipe that I had to break off near the lower bolt hole in order to get it to fit. Other than that it lined up fine. I also blocked off the air injection pipe coming from the head. I used two pieces of hose with end caps in both of them (see image).

    Crf450l jd jetting

    With the factory exhaust those are the best settings with the exception of the Green/Blue zone which could be set to 5 or 5.5. This will reduce the snappy on-off throttle at low speeds in the first few gears. Removing the air box lid will not make a big difference.

    2019 CRF450X or CRF450L ????

    The L does not have a cush drive hub, it has a rubber strip around the sprocket to reduce chain noise.
  10. Sneak peek... Testing this bad boy out for the weekend. So far I'm very happy!

    Honda cry 450L yoshi full exhaust

    I think the Vortex is still having issues (the choke is not working). I'm running the JD Jetting and FMF with the following settings: 4.5, 6.5, 5, 5, 4.5, 4. I just got the FMF this weekend so my settings could change.

    It will run lean and overheat, possibly damaging the engine. You will also lose power without proper fueling.

    No you need to add fuel, JD Jetting is the cheapest option as far as I know.

    Vortex ECU for the 2019 Honda CRF450L!

    Can anyone that had the JD Jetting before comment on the actual practical difference between that and the Vortex? I currently have the JD Jetting, and there's an FMF exhaust on the back of a camel somewhere which I'm hoping will eventually reach East-Coast Canada. I'm wondering if it's worth the upgrade in my case.
  15. The stock header on the L is smaller, so probably not.
