  1. hows it going guys, ive been shopping around for a couple weeks for my new bike. im leaning towards a 2011 right now on craigslist. Stock sprockets on the bike looks like it has very low hours. he posted the bike for 5500 but i think thats to much because of the new bikes coming out in 2013 what do you guys think its worth? http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/mcd/3277736183.html as far as upgrades go, if i get the bike i want to get the forks resprung and revalved...from all the reviews they say this bike does still have an un-settling feeling in 2011.....what do you guys think? then im leaning towards a MRD pipe and re-map to open this thing up thanks guys

    Found one on Craigslist that seems clean. I just sold my 06 crf 450 to try a FI bike. Condition of bike: Vet owned says he raced 40+ int. Transmission was tumbled (?) Suspension revalved 90 hours on bike What do you guys think? I was leaning towards a new bike but for the price this one doesn't seem to bad to check out. 4900$ Thank you

    Dual exhaust!

    im preety sure we've already figured out that the dualies produce less horsepower...i think most ppl will be switching out the stock exhaust for a single....but they say the duals balance the bike out for a better center of gravity

    Anyone used any of the builder series hotcams?

    hey ron do aftermarket cams cause more valve slap or beating on the seats? im running the stock 06 cam (good wheel spin but i would like more up top) but i dont want to be destroying heads every 50 hours....i got my head done over a year ago and havnt even touched it since.... any help would be awesome im leaning towards an 08R cam or the stage 2 hotcams....im preety much running stock motor with just the 13:1 08 piston

    06 CRF 250

    new hondas are nice but they dont seem to be very reliable, yamahas seem to be slugs....but it really depends on how you ride it and how you maintain it...cheers

    Anyone used any of the builder series hotcams?

    i would think the stage 1 hotcam would be best for you...not that i have any expierence with it, ive heard that the 05R cams make the best bottom end... but im preety interested in this thread too, im looking to put a stage 2 hotcam in my r to boost the over rev...if someone with expierence with these cams jump into this thread it would be awesome cause i have some questions too!!

    Questions concerning '06 CRF450r

    fork rebuild should be good, make sure your sag is set right.... and theres nothing like a fresh bridgestone 403 on the front
