My bike is handling like a new bike in the tight east coast woods I ride in. I recently got the Clarke/Ims seat tank combo. Now I raised the fork tubes 8mm and put a 52 tooth sprocket on the rear with stock size chain shortening the wheel base. It is turning like an XR in the woods! I traded bikes for a lap with my buddies 99 XR400 when we got back to the truck all he could say was “I need to get a new bike.” I on the other hand couldn’t wait to get my bike back. Thanks Thumper Talkers for answering all my questions for the last 2 years. :)

Greg,
He doesn't need a "new bike", he is fast enough now!!! We need to slow him down a bit. :)
Just a thought,
C-ya at Wythville,

Your right Jeff, I am trying to tell him the CR450F is not the bike for him and to stick with the XR. Are you going to preride on Saturday?

Bill, I am actually coming up to Pa. the last week in September. I can't remember the name of the town but I think it is near Johnstown. I am going riding with my buddy who is from there, he rides a 400exc Quad. Before you say anything about ridding with a Quad you should see this guy ride this thing, he is very fast and can ride surprisingly tight trails on it. Oh by the way remember it was you who bailed on me and Jeff down in South Carolina. :)

Jeff see ya Sunday.
