    16 Crf450r mods

    Ron Hamp will make it a ripper with his port, polish, and cam, mine is awesome!! I put A kit suspension on and the bike is phenomenal, way better than my 17 was, thing handles like a dream and power for days, but is super easy to ride.

    2019 steering loose

    I tightened the spanner nut before I installed the top clamp. I had the forks off and head unit apart to pack bearings. Put the lower clamps back on, installed spanner nut, tightened it, then installed the top clamp, slid one fork leg in, snugged lower clamp, and tightened the steering stem but down as tight as I was comfortable, still more slop than I would care to have, doesn’t take much to slap the bars from side to side, they won’t hold themselves off the stops if you turn them a little.

    2019 steering loose

    I tightened the spanner nut under the top clamp until I couldn’t get it any tighter, and then I tightened the nut on top of the upper clamp until it started making men nervous. It made it better than it was, but I can still bump the bars with my hand and they will slap from stop to stop. I didn’t know if I could have a bad race or bad bearing or anything like gay from the factory.

    2019 steering loose

    Just wondering if anyone else has a problem with the steering on their 19 being loose? I repacked the head unit bearing with a good heavy grease and tightened everything down as much as I thought I could without damaging something. It helped but it is still pretty loose, it doesn’t take much to make the bars slap from side to side. Anyone have the same issue or know how to remedy this?

    Amsoil 4 Stroke Oil any good?

    Did not know that lol. I saw grey oil and assumed it was just breaking down faster or something so I got scared and went back to Mobil one.

    Amsoil 4 Stroke Oil any good?

    I wasn’t a big fan on their oil. I had always heard how great it was so I decided to try some and every time I drained my oil it was dirty. I have always used Mobil one 4t 10-40 in the past and it has been great. I change my oil every ride, sometimes every other ride and it is normally just as clean as when I put it in, but the amsoil was grey every time I changed it so I went back to Mobil one.

    13-16 tall seat?

    That is what I was afraid of, it isn’t terrible so I will just deal with it and get used to it, thank you.

    13-16 tall seat?

    Anyone out there running or ever ridden a 13-16 with a tall seat? I am not that tall, 5’9”-5’10”, and I love the ay the stock bike fits me, but I put some neken sfs clamps on which raised the bars a little, and I had to go to an oversized bar also and the fat bar version of the stock bend bar is just a little taller, bike still feels good but when I sit down in corners and try to get my elbows up I almost have to shrug my shoulders a little now b cause everything is just a little taller. I was considering using a GUTS tall seat to try to get me up over the bike a little more when seated, their web site says they are 1” taller than stock, but then I start wondering about if it will make moving around on the bike feel different or if that plan would even work, anyone on here tried a tall seat on a 13-16? Thoughts on it?

    16 crf450r recall not done

    I think any dealer would do the recall, if that dealer truly didn’t do either of the things they told you they did then I wouldn’t trust them to take it back to them, I would take it to another Honda dealer and have them look at it, if that Honda dealer confirms that the update was not done and such then i would think you could contact Honda about the whole thing.

    Magura clutch fit from 2016 to 2017

    Slave cylinder is the same, Magura just forgot to send me the spacer that goes behind the bracket at one end and the longer bolt that goes with it also. Kind of a hokie design I think, not a fan of the spacer thing, thinking about converting everything over to a 2013-2014 setup that mounts the slave cylinder on top of the case, will have to get a different actuation arm also though and possibly a whole new magura set up.

    Magura clutch fit from 2016 to 2017

    Anyone have a picture of the bracket that fits the 2016? Magura told me all I need to swap from 17 to 16 was the bracket so they sent me one but it does not seem to fit, can’t seem to find much as far as a parts on their web site, so I was wondering if anyone has one they post a picture of so I will know if I got the wrong part or if I’m just not as smart as the parts I’m working with.

    Magura clutch fit from 2016 to 2017

    I just swapped from a 2017 Honda Magura setup back to a 2016. Talked to the guy at magura about it, everything will swap over except the bracket, they sold me just the bracket for $30 after shipping. I haven’t bolted anything up to confirm it yet, but he assured me all was the same on the 16 to the 17 except the slave bracket, I even have a 2017 bracket if anyone wants one.
