    Starting issue - HOT_this is getting old!

    wow. if i had that problem with mine you can bet i would sell and buy one with a button. i do stall like you guys,tight woods and also in sand tight banks and i miss juge the line, in 1st. i pull the clutch in find tdc. and let it rip.1 or 2nd kick all day long with out hot-start. i must say that when i lend my bike out to a bud they always say man that bitch is hard to start. did i forget to mention that my uper lages make arnold jelous..lol time to hit the gym.

    Anyone using Michelin M-12's for woods use?

    i have m-12 front and back. wow what a change. now when i corner on hard compact stuff the front end wheelies out of the turn , the stock junk never did that. it would shred out and i would have to slack off. now i can gun threw. and for the mud it's beter for it is slim and tall. so it hooks up nice ,,for me and my style. i think that it will melt fast but if you ask me they all do if you ride hard.

    crf450 supermoto project

    here in montreal all bikes that been modified for the street and been running "" legal "" we got a letter saying that are registration have been revoked. we no longer can run a sm in the street. but if you buy a bike like a drl 400, xr650, klx 650, ktm sm with flashers you can run it. so if a guy spent big bucks on rebuilding his crf or any other moto x he will be in for a shock when he will go and get his sm plated and get sent back home. with the sm still in the trailer......that sucks

    Why all the trouble?

    same here i bought it and i did nt even see it, the only thing i saw was a brocher,and specs. that was a gamble. there was so much hype about the new rmz. with a few upgrade mods and i am going on my 3rd year and i would trade it for nothing else,beside a x modle,it it could get here.( or maybe that new aprila) god it's sweet efi twin cylender.

    5 speed 450 ???

    that 08 would sell like hot cakes. i would exchange for on a dime. i ride mostly trails and enduro race once and while. and the etart would be nice. got some buddies that ride with crf 450 x andthey like to rub it in, aspecialy on the wide open area. also it would be fun to get some rims and flashers and ride it in the street. can wait for the upgrade if suzuk can wake up.....
