    Good Suspension shops in the Sacramento area?

    Send out your stuff to MX Tech, they are legit. Or just by Ohlins.

    Same goes for sound.

    Mxtech also makes their “Lucky” cartridges for the 4cs forks.

    Instead of guessing on if you need springs, get off the keyboard, grab a tape measure and just check your damn sag.

    Im pretty sure they have meds these days that will prevent you from having conversations with yourself. 🤣

    Correct... my mistake. A buddy has 2 ktm's, one with the 4cs (I thought was air, but they were spring, regardless they blew donkey dick) and then the same bike that he said he had KYB SSS internals put into. Night and day difference, specially riding the 2 back to back.

    Mach 1 Motorsports in Vallejo does wonders on suspension. Other than them I would send them out. Not sure what forks are on your bike, but if they are 4cs, do yourself a favor and throw those pieces of shit in the trash and get spring forks.

    Takegawa +R Superhead - - XR100

    I believe it will physically work, but the Superhead has a deeper combustion chamber than the stock head, so you will actually lower the compression. You will want a popup piston with their head.

    16 CRF450R "Build"

    Recovered the seat right before the race so I wouldn't slide around. Couple pics from the races. Bike did great, ripped off some fast laps that were where I needed to be, I just need to get in shape, died off at the end of the race, ended up 6th because I was so gassed, couple guys got by on the last lap. Time to send the suspension off to MX-Tech.

    Its the little things... And threw on some handguard, wont race without them... Took some situating of switches and levers and had to remove the standoff on the throttle, but they will be quick on and off in the future if wanted.
  13. I agree with this 150%. A 450 is a lot of bike, specially for trails. And on the street, no thanks. WR250 or CRF250 would be a great first trail bike, good suspension, plenty of motor to do anything. As mentioned, if you are looking for a dual sport, a DRZ400 would be a good bike, super tame, little tanks, not as good as a 250 4 stroke on the trail, but can ride on the street. I have found bikes with less power make you keep up corner speed to keep up with people on bigger bikes with less skill dont have the big power to twist in a straight line. Once you are fast on a 250, hop up to a 450 and you will school all your riding buddies.

    Threw the 17's on it today. My old 320mm front brake wont work with this bike, so gonna run the OEM 260mm, this is a all dirt "supermoto" so basically a TT race, we will see how bad the fade is. Bike has a rain on the front currently and a slick on the rear, need to change the rear out to a rain, I will get around to that at some point this week, I hate changing tires... Got all the fluids changed, and everything safety wired. Blasted around the property then took a lap out on the paved roads (im sure the neighbors were thrilled), clutch seems to work well, was able to slide it in a few corners without chatter, though the rear slick wasn't hot and is super old so its not getting the best traction... Currently have 13/44 gearing on it, feels a little tall, I will bring some sprockets with me and see where I am at once I get on a track, might go to a 46...

    Ya, easier than draining all the oil out of it, then still having oil dripping. Didnt wanna have to put fresh oil into it, just to break in the clutch then change it again. Had about 8 hours on that oil, so it was coming up on due, so broke the clutch in with it then drained and put some fresh oil in it.
