    DUMB question.. BUT NEED TO ASK IT

    Hello, my son has a 07 150rb the drain for the engine is on the bottom close to tranny side. The drain for the tranny is like my 450x dipstick side behind the shifter. Tranny almost took a whole quart with the weep hole unplugged. Engine side takes almost 3/4 of a quart. Filter is the same as my 450x, I think all the oil filters are the same for the crf's r models.

    New Head - Where to start with shim sizes

    hello, put old or new shims in tork down cam shaft assembly don't put cam sproket on. I have 2007 modle left intake stock was 1.92mm right intake 1.96. Cam shaft assembly has to be torqed down to get good reading. I used 1.72 on left intake 1.78 on right ehxaust was fine.

    High Octane?

    Hello people i have a 05-450x and i run 93 octane. To make it short a airplane engine like a cessna would have lycoming 4 cylinder runs on 100 low lead gas this is a very high compression engine that has a very low redline. Check your homework but detonation is the fuel mixture firing before the piston is at the top of compression stroke not the valves clattering. What you are hearing is the piston ratteling the cylinder wall. In my flight training handbook i had to learn this. hope this helps.

    450X is killing me

    Bone stock, open the screw a little on bottom of carb. Not sure of your location i live TN most riding is less than 1000ft above sea level may be jetting. My 05 450x runs fine!

    whats the reality?

    Buy the 450x just don't twist the gas to much kids get pissed with the roost! My son has learned not to ride so close, he likes riding in front now. I have 700 miles no problems. 05 450x, 04 crf100, 04 rancher AT.
