  1. Here is my 07crf 450r since this picture last month it has all new plastics handle bars and seat cover installed will load pictures of the recent overhaul. Since my accident yes this bike put me into the hospital for most of all last summer now that it's bin gone through to better condition before the accident. I'm thinking of selling it. I would like to get a Honda TRX 700XXyes a sport quad laugh all you guys want I broke my leg in three places I'm lucky I didn't loose my left leg from the knee down. My leg causes me lots of pain still 10months since my last surgery so thinking a sport quad would be easier on my leg and I'd still be able to ride.
  2. No but I've had my share of wipe outs stiches and broken bones and I'll tell you one thing them chest protectors specially the good ones like the new Fox raptor chest protector with least protect your ribs and if you slide across the dirt a good ways lots of stiches aswell. I plan on buying that Fox Raptor chest protector looks to be a well built one I think it'll be worth the money. But cheap $80 chest protectors ya don't expect much.
  3. Please wear as much protective motocross equipment as you can buy believe me I had a really bad accident last summer I broke my leg in three places was off work all summer and lost $15 000 in lost income as well as damage to my Dirt bike witch I'm almost done rebuilding. Were a neck brace once you get into a wreck like I did you will know what I'm taking about. Ill explain a little bit it was after supper figured I'd go for a quick rip up couple back roads before I call it a day then I screwed up wipped out broke my leg in three places. But before I left I thought to myself ma I only need my jersey pants and helmet well while I was laying on that dirt road wondering if I was going to be found ( laid there with broken leg just over two hours)before the coyotes eat me I said to myself never again will I ride this bike without all my gear had I bin wearing knee braces I think I would of had a better out come. Believe me a month in the hospital is no fun I almost had a stroke at 26 years old cause they could not control my swelling since it was so long before I was found and rushed to the hospital. My point is were as much protective equipment as possible I also now have a mouth guard as I had a what they told me was TBI tramadic brain injury plus a chipped tooth. Believe me you don't wanna be stuck wereing this for 2 weeks. That's a xbrace and yup them bolts go straight into my bone the swelling was so bad I had they could not do surgery on my leg to I had to lay in bed for almost two weeks with a broken leg broken in three places waiting for the swelling to go down to then have three plates installed.That exbrace was need to keep my leg stretched out cause the swelling with the bones beeing broke shrunk my leg 6 inches. Hope this answers your questions and everyone else's question when it comes to how much gear they should were.
  4. Thanks took all weekend lots of tedious sanding couple coats of primer but sure was worth taking my time. No leaks and already had all the supplies sept for the JB weld so cost me about $10.
  5. Also I have a 4.5 Leatt neck brace and I would not ride without it. Most MX guys don't like wearing them because it limits movement of your head witch is a good thing means less chance of breaking your neck. I don't think good neck braces like the leatts are a marketing scam.
  6. I think all the gear is important in it's own way you can never were enough ridding equipment. When I had my accident this summer things would of bin alot worse then my broken leg if I wasn't wearing most of my gear.
  7. I think if it were me I'd replace both sides. But it's hard to tell how deep and long it really is until it's all removed. How did it break?
  8. Hi I haven't posted in a while didn't get much riding in this past summer due to my dirtbike accident in June and my broken leg. But did get to do a little back road cruising before it snowed. But to get to my point I had my 07 CRF 450R leaned up against my deck and when I was at work we had a 110+ KM/H windstorm come up and it slammed my bike into the ground put my new shifter into my Stator cover. So I after I calmed down I went on eBay and was going to be way to much with shipping and the duty Fee's and the dollar difference since I'm in Saskatchewan Canada. Thus I'm kinda strapped after being out of work all summer due to my accident. So I got a thinking theres got to be a way to fix this thing for cheap. I got on Google and turns out I'm not the only one this had happened to so I bought so JB weld did some Bondo and paint. Now going to paint the clutch cover nothing like a job well done. Sorry I didn't take pictures of it before I started on it phone was dead had to let it charge a bit but as you can see from the back side it wasn't good leaked like a siv. So I ruffed the area up with 80grit the took a diegrinder and ground the in side of the crack and braked cleaned the crap out of it . Lots more upgrades to come now that winter is here it's getting a massive over haul all new plastics new rads rebuildt front end new chain and sprockets brakes handle bars pegs seat cover tires brakes wheels and more.
  9. I went from a 2016 700r Raptor to a 07 CRF 450 Honda and I got to say it's a lot to handle iv already broke my leg in three places I'd like to trade it for a 250 Honda. If you're a small person like me 5foot 7 and 155lbs a 450 dirtbike is hard to handle but I'm getting around to it but I'd rather a 250.
  10. I know I'll piss people off buy I went from Yamaha Raptors to Honda dirtbikes cause I can't afford to keep rebuilding Yamaha raptor 700 Motors. My Honda CRF 450R is 10x more reliable and would embarrass my 2016 700 Raptor
  11. Took my CRF450R for my first ride today since my accident it's bin 5weeks since my last surgery (two plates and bunch of screws and 38staples) felt good to get back on even though I looked like someone that has never rode a dirtbike. I took it very slow just itching to crack that throttle it was temping.
  12. In Saskatchewan in the summer the sun doesn't go down till 9:30 9:40ish it's still kinda light till about 10pm on clear nights.
  13. I just can't wait to put on all that weird smelling Motocross gear and kick that bike over grab that throttle and go for a ride again counting down the days till August.
  14. I was at the Colvile track here in Saskatchewan on Sunday June 11th with my CRF450R and was riding and jumping my bike all day then the weather got bad so I went home. After a few hours round 8 pm it cleared off and decided I'd go cruise couple back roads I was about a mile away​ from home standing on my foot pegs first gear part throttle deciding were I wanted to go then for some reason my foot slipped off the peg I fell to the one side accidentally cracked the throttle and I just remembered the bike standing up and then when I came to i found myself laying in the middle of this dirt trail/road I realized I broke my leg and couldn't move pain was intence leg was burning. I didn't phone on my since I was wereing all my motocross gear including my Leatt 4.5 neck brace glad I was wereing it so no pockets for phone. I basically laid there for a few hours and I remember being really tired wanting to fall asleep then when it was starting to get dark out I heard a truck roll up. He was my land lords dad ironicly and my land lord is a Motocross guy as well so this was no new sight to him. He called his wife she came out I they helped me sit up and tried calling 911 but for whatever reason 911 service wasn't working every time they dialed it would just hang up so once we determined I only had a broken boke and possibly internal bleeding they loaded me up in the back of her Chevy suv and took me into kerrobert hospital were they couldn't do nothing for me there so I stayed the night and was rushed to Saskatoon for surgery the next day long story short I spent week and a half in the hospital wishing I could get back on my bike. Luckily it was a slow accident and only ruined a handle bar grip. The worst thing about breaking my leg ( broke my tibular in three places) is I can't stop thinking about riding it's killing me having to Sit around not being able to ride. Mid August I'll be able to get back on and just do easy ridding no tracks till late fall if not till next season. I had to sit around for a week with that x brace on and yes it was drilled into my leg to keep the leg straight till the swelling went down I now have plates and screws in my leg I'm on week four since my last surgery the doctor is getting me to put little weight on it and said buy mid August I'll be off my crutches but will have a bad limp till the mucles regain strength.
  15. Took my CRF45R out for my very first ride today it's my first dirtbike ever and was my very first time even sitting in it. Dam it's got some power it's going to take some getting used to ridding I came from a piece of junk 2016 700R SE Raptor. This bike is a whole different animal. The full Titanium T4 exhaust system sounds amazing to boot.
