It’s been 14 to 20 degrees here (about 12 now), but I will ride it for a little time on a dirt road nearby. I won’t gain much info though. I’ll try to weigh it tomorrow night!

After that I have four days off to get it street legal. I want this because there is a little better trail I can ride on, about 5 miles away that I get to on back roads. There I can better compare it to the WR 426 I had. I basically live on the edge of a subdivision. For all our true dirt biking we have to go 3 ½ to 4 ½ hours.

I love the shape, very MX like, suspension needs to break in, and I need to set the sag.

Hey Jim, trick bike! but whats that yellow thing in the background of your 450 pic? See you this week. Oh, as for the street legal horn. You can have it for a free ride on your 450. Looks like I'll have to wear the bucket cam this year ah.

Cool!!!

Too bad that pretty blue bike has to share the garage with that yellow thing.

Nice pics. What is that white stuff all over your driveway??

Please find a good scale to weigh your bike on soon. I must know how much this bike weighs.

What are the gear ratios (should be in the manual, also probably unchanged from last year)?

What is the final drive ratio (sprocket teeth)?

What is the exhaust made out of (steel or Al)? Hard to tell from the pics. Looks like the coolant catch continues for the '03 model year though...




Thanks!
