    CRF450X Questions...again??

    After a brief look through the owners manual of my new bike i was a little horrified to discover Honda recomend the Piston and Rings be replaced every 15hrs.... Is there anything other than the loss of power that is likely to be effected if i at least double this interval...or just wait till it starts to lose compression before getting this seen to???? I can cope with doing the valve clearances every 1000k's or so, but a whole new piston and rings every 6 months seems a bit excessive! While im here i wouldnt mind hearing if anyone has managed to find some good settings for the suspension for a 95kg rider. Ive only racked up 65k's so far but the front end feels a little dicey, not nearly as planted as my XR400?? At this stage all settings are stock, will get the static sag dialled in tomorrow but not sure were to go from there tho?

    whats up with the xr suspension

    Hmmm that explains a lot, including my ignorance :-) Will have a chat to someone who actually knows poo from ice cream when it comes to suspension and give some heavier springs a shot! Thanks for the tip!

    whats up with the xr suspension

    Maybe at 93 kilos i'm just too fat, the under side of my bashplate has been absolutely tortured...... Since when did riding trails become the easy life for a dirt bike anyway? WR's were also designed for trail riding and they some how managed to get kick ass suspension!

    Good info thanx, unfortunately if it's gonna cost you guys $400 in the states it would be like the cost of a whole new bike in oz...oh well!

    I'm getting those ideas again...

    Oh yeah...there is nothing like stuffing an xr up the inside of 450exc or a wr and giving em a good hosing as you make them wonder why thier doing twice as much maintenance as you are and why thier bike cost shitloads more than yours did, having said that tho i'm always ten times more stuffed than anyone else after hauling the xr around at ten tenths all day but i can live with that for now and i don't have to listen to the...it's coz you got a faster bike than me bullshit...i fu--ing love it
