  1. I assumed that the dedicated exhaust system would remain monogamous, with no chance of finding it messing around with orange or blue bikes.
  2. The only bikes I own with 7/8" bars are a crf150 and crf80. Even my crf250x has 1-1/8" bars.
  3. Agreed. Here are the specs from their blurb with the marketing hype removed: CRF450L Dual Sport - LED lighting - Mirrors - Dedicated exhaust system. - Wide-ratio six-speed transmission - Lightweight, 2.0-gallon tank - Crank mass is up - Large-capacity radiator Color: Red Target Price: $10,399 Availability: September What part of that list gets you excited about the bike? The mirrors? The small 2 gallon tank? The color red?
  4. Does "dedicated exhaust system" mean you don't have to share the header pipe with your buddy?
  5. Agreed, I think Honda will be the first major manufacturer of a kick start electric bike. Teslas are kick start too, right?
  6. Remember, it's all about the hype. The Honda marketing folks are paid a grundle to generate excitement around the brand and specific products. Look at this thread, for example, they have us talking and speculating about their bikes... and we're doing it for free. It's all part of their plan, and we're playing right into their grubby little hands.
  7. Been there, done that. Just make sure you use a new crush washer, the old one won't seal properly with the new head pipe.
  8. Considering the thousands of people I have known that ride dirt bikes, you are the absolute very first person to ever say that carb work and paying for gas and oil takes some of the satisfaction in screaming away. In my world, carb work and other wrenching is relaxing. I pay for gas and oil to drive my truck. In fact, I get satisfaction in paying for gas and oil to make my weed eater and leaf blower scream.

    Nice mid-level bike. Unfortunately it does't have a kick starter for when the battery dies.

  10. I grease up the inside of the boot and/or throttle body, which really helps. I don't know if there are specific types of grease you shouldn't use, but I typically use whatever I have within reach.
  11. Here's my suggestion... Rather than separate sub-forums, TT should use tags to break things down... and make the selection of tags mandatory for new posts. For example, the OP would have to select a tag from each of the following areas, which would be displayed as part of their original post: Model: 250RR, 300RR , 350RR, etc. Purpose: Engine, Suspension, Maps, Aftermarket Mods, General, BS, etc. Then, add filtering to the forum, where I would be able to filter on specific bike models (Xtrainer 300, 390RR, and 480RR) and/or a specific purpose for the post (Suspension), and only the relevant posts would be displayed. Or... I could choose no filters and view all posts. Come on TT, we want the best of both worlds... make filtering happen!
  12. I installed the 3.6 gallon Clark tank on my 2011 without issue. The fit is good with no mods required. I later installed the Unabiker radiator guards, which fit great as well with the tank and OEM shrouds.
  13. Have you checked into a quiet core insert for your exhaust? http://www.dubachracing.com/shop/quiet-core-insert/
  14. I was trying to solve another issue when Kran pointed me to the ACV. However, since I blocked off the ACV she seems to be running better than ever. Maybe it's just the cooler weather, but even the quirky things seem to be gone. Here's the link to the thread discussing my issue, which also contains jet sizes and part numbers: https://thumpertalk.com/index.php?/topic/1238147-Jetting-for-higher-elevation#entry13867786 I posted a picture in the other thread showing how I blocked the passageway by cutting a piece of bulk rubber to block the ACV path. I could revert if necessary, but don't see a reason I ever would.
