    Honda CRF450L (2019)


  2. 0 comments

    I love riding this bike, probably more than any bike I've ever had (and I've had a lot). I have had many other dual sports and even traded in a 2014 KLR650 for this one. This bike has great power and looks fantastic. The suspension is the best on any dual sport I've had, even better than my Husqvarna TE450. The bike is nearly perfect, in fact the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the seat (too hard and narrow), the lean fuel delivery (has cut out on me several times) and the small gas tank. It really needs at least a 3 gallon tank. Granted these are all fixable things but for the price of this bike...you shouldn't have to fix anything IMO.

    Very good lights, suspension, riding position, mirrors do not shake much, instrumentation is basic (should be a Garmin). Maintenance interval is considerably longer than my EXC that required expensive top end rebuild at 205 hours instead of 2000 hours with 450L. 530EXC was awesome performance, expensive to ride. Weight is slightly more noticeable vs other dual sport eurothumpers. Delivered with low idle: stalled constantly until turned up counterclockwise. Had D606 installed as stock tires not good for dirt. Abrupt on/off throttle useless on tight single track or slow cruising in town. JD Jetting tuner helped, not a smooth roll on of throttle still even with throttle tamer. Tuner helped power too. IMS tank required for most rides, 2 gallons for highway is silly. Seat like sitting on a 2 x 4 after a couple hours: Seat Concepts low seat helps 2 ways. Oil drain plug was rusted after first splash (100 miles); it is huge so oil flow is very fast!
  4. Hey everyone, I wanted to go about adding gel and a black seat to my bike as I am constantly scuffing and scrubbing the red seat and my rear hurts. Yes I am very aware of the seat concepts setups and have been in contact with them but its nearly impossible for me to justify bringing it to Canada. As of right now I am looking at a seat concepts race 2.0 and with a local company(which normally does motocross seats) filling it with gel and shaving down a bit of foam. Price I have been able to get it to around $200 out the door but still seems really high considering I just want a standard black seat with gel. So if I open the idea of another seat cover and just put his gel in stock in I could really use any seat cover. I have tried a 2016 cover and it does not fit, 2017+ seems to fit but cant find one in rotation. Let me know if you see any options and I would be more than happy to take a look! Thanks guys! -Ken

    Crf450l piston

    I was wondering if anyone thinks the R modle piston would work in the L. I know they have the same bore and stroke. Same valves just different cam and piston and the wrist pin is different also. I have had my L for weak now and I'm missing the power from the R models. The R has 13:1 and the L only has 12:1 Also thoughts on the fuel adjustment when doing this. I don't think rasing the compression ratio would affect the fuel mixture.

    Honda CRF450L (2021)


    Bought because it’s a Honda. I may be more relaxed on maintenance.

    The trails are calling, and the all-new, road-legal CRF450L answers, expanding customers’ off-road possibilities by enabling access to the best riding trails on public lands, even when that means connecting them via asphalt roads. Based on the CRF450R, the durable CRF450L is a full-fledged off-road machine, but with street legality achieved via features like LED lighting, mirrors, and a dedicated exhaust system, making this bike equally at home in the woods, desert, or the roads in between. CRF450L Key Features • Lightweight, 2.0-gallon titanium fuel tank for long range • Riding time maximized by lightweight, compact LED lighting system, featuring headlight with high-intensity projection for illuminating broad area • Rear-view mirrors • Lightweight lithium-ion battery with increased capacity compared to CRF450R, to power electrical components • Lightweight, compact digital meter with black characters on a white liquid-crystal background is easily legible while riding Engine/Drivetrain • 449.7cc Unicam® engine specially tailored for trail-to-trail riding • Finger rocker arm contributes to compact layout while using dedicated design to attain off-road-specific power characteristics. DLC surface treatment reduces friction • Dedicated valve timing for smooth power delivery in technical riding • High crank inertia (up 12% over CRF450R) for tractable power delivery in technical terrain • 12.0:1 compression ratio • New piston with three-ring design • Wide-ratio six-speed transmission is ready for a wide variety of off-road terrain or road going • Special clutch design enables light lever pull. Primary damper mechanism with friction springs suppresses engine torque fluctuations, ensuring smooth running • Large-capacity radiators with high heat-exchange efficiency for strong performance in demanding off-road conditions • Electric fan and thermostat control engine temperature in brutal conditions • ECU with dedicated settings • Noise emissions minimized via covers on the left and right crank cases • Powerful AC generator for street-legal lighting • Air cleaner box • Dedicated single-muffler exhaust system provides great sound while meeting emissions requirements Chassis/Suspension • Aluminum twin-spar frame designed for nimble-yet-stable handling on trails • Subframe designed to ensure optimum rigidity balance appropriate for carrying tools • 49mm Showa fork with dedicated settings for trail-to-trail riding • Shock based on that of the CRF450R but with dedicated settings and link ratio for off-road riding • Front brake uses design from CRF450R, but with better fade resistance thanks to thicker discs and large-capacity reservoir • Endless sealed chain withstands the elements • Front and rear sprockets, produced in durable steel material, feature damper system for smooth, quiet running • Urethane injection in swingarm to reduce road noise • Fuel tank cap with a cut-off valve prevents fuel from flowing out of tank if the bike is on its side • LED turn signals with flexible mounts for durability • Easily accessible electronic component box on left side of the frame • Black 7/8” Renthal handlebar with red pad • Compact, lightweight handlebar switches • In-mold graphics are resistant to peeling caused by washing or abrasion • IRC GP-21F/GP-22R tires provide great balance of on- and off-road performance • Black rims for strong presence

    I'm enjoying it!
  10. Got my tank installed today. Pretty straightforward. Remove seat and front fork reflectors (they will rub on tank). Re-torque fork pinch bolts to 15 ft-lbs. Remove forward side fairings. Remove tank cover and remove 3 tank mounting bolts. Disconnect fuel tank electrical connector. Disconnect fuel connection by removing bolt on hold down clamp and lift up on green lock. Remove tank and transfer fuel pump assembly to IMS tank. Add additional washer under OEM washers and use supplied bolts. Torque bolts to 8 ft-lbs. Install front attach point bracket with rubber grommet on tank. Install tank on bike and connect electrical connector, fuel line and fuel line clamp. Install bumper on right rear mounting point. Install “L” bracket at left rear mounting point and forward attach bolt. Install forward seat bracket, side covers and seat. Thank you to IMS and ThumperTalk!
  11. I am in the market for a new dual sport and I’ve narrowed down my search to either a KTM 350 EXC-F or a CRF450RL. I realize the 500 KTM is closer to what the Honda is and I am keeping my options open. I like the idea of the lightest most nimble bike for single track, hence the 350 (my last dirt bike was a 125 2T) But I also like the idea of Honda reliability and better road manners, hence the 450L. My typical ride would be out my garage, ride 14 miles of pavement backroads to tight single track in the PNW. I guess my question is if the 350 would be ok for longer trips down the road if I felt the desire, or if the 450L would be too much of a pig in tight single track? What is your skill Level (be honest)? Intermediate 2. What's your height & weight? 5’10” 170 3. What year, make, & model of motorcycle are you coming from? And, what do you want the new bike to do better? 01 XR250R 01 RM125 03 SV650 4. What's your ballpark budget? New KTM prices 5. What types of terrain will you be riding? pavement/single track 6. Will you be racing or just play riding? no racing
  12. use the AXP19 code! You will get 20% off + an AXP cap! ordered skid plate and rad guards
  13. After riding the bike for a bit more its time to start adding some small parts to make it more "mine". First thing I did was toss on a Renthal Fatbar with the BRP mount and the option to add a Scotts stabilizer in the future. I also changed the grips. Removed the rear chain guard. Then I went ahead and removed the smog related items, bike runs fine with no FI lights. Mostly removed them for ease of cleaning/maintenance and weight. I also changed out the line that goes to the carbon canister for the line from the RX (I originally bought the tank cap assembly but it didn't fit). There is two lines coming off the airbox that I also plugged up and are not pictured. I also removed the kickstand switch. The PCV line from the valve cover goes into the clear plastic box and then into the airbox. I went ahead and joined it to some extra tubing and routed it down and to the swingarm. This is on the thermostat housing. There is a brass fitting that goes into the airboot, if you want you probably could swap it out with the one from the R or RX. Line that was swapped out that routes to the carbon canister. The Honda PGM-FI tool does not work, pretty much saw that coming but I found a used one off ebay for really cheap and my friend wanted me to tune his bike. I might be able to figure out something else out but haven't had as much time due to studying for a cert for work. Hopefully an exhaust is next on the list, maybe swap or modify the airbox but I don't want to do that until I can add more fueling. Im sure this bike is running super lean from the factory to pass emissions standards. I also have some levers that I purchased but need a different brake master to fit so that's on hold for the moment.
  14. Just in case you wondered... Line 2 is the X, line 3 is the L. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1_oROCr00bSTx2GpcYn0H_mMEVfHIoDj-?usp=sharing Data is sourced from EPA: https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2018-02/off-road-mc-atv-utv-recveh-2006-present.xlsx https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2018-02/on-hwymc-2006-present.xlsx

  18. Hello all, it’s been a while since I have been here, so long that I lost my previous account. I have a 2009 BMW f 800 GS I have had it since new. I love the bike, trailer it down to Arizona every winter ( not this year) :( I was hardcore off road dirt bike racer and sold that when I turned 40 :( I have taken that GS where it has no rite to be and treated it like a 250 on some rides. I love how versatile it is, yes it is heavy off-road but in the right hands with heavy springs it’s capable of things most would not consider, even some easier single track. The thing I liked best was when on the highway transition points between off road areas or BDR sections or it’s very comfortable and stable. But it’s been time for an upgrade for sometime, I kept hoping that Honda would get their crap together and make the African twin in a smaller version but as we know they are going the opposite way. My friend went the Yamaha 700 route and they got that bike right from the start feels very dirt bike like. Not a Yamaha fan from my racing days so I am looking at the Honda 450L with a bigger tank. So to my long winded question. Has anyone else gone down that far and how does it compare on the highway? I remember trying a very old 690 on the highway at 75 mph and being very uncomfortable when big trucks went by me it felt very unstable but that may have been the setup.
