RMZ 450 for trail riding ?
Posted August 24, 2009 - 07:46 AM
I tried the bike in open field and i can say it has awesome power and i like the handling, brakes and bike in general but i'm worried about 4 speed gearbox for trails. Its not that tight all the time but sometimes we come to places where you must ride really slow and i'm worried about long 1st gear but on the other side it has the best bottom end power of all the 4 stroke bikes i rode so it might be a good combination.
Bike is in really great shape, has all new on it and it is really awesome bike that i would really like to buy.
I would like an opinion from someone who rides it.
Is there a way to put a wide ration tranny in there?

If the price is right, buy it.

I think it will work for woods if i buy it, maybe i put a larger rear sprocket but only maybe because i might get used to long 1st gear. I'm just spoiled on EXC wide ratio trans ...
Well i'll talk to my sponsor(Dad) and propably will go for it in few days

I also have a KTM and have my eyes on the new RMX.
I have these aftermarket parts for the 07 RMZ450 in case you're interested.
Works connection Skid Plate

I'm thinking I'll take 1/2 - 2/3 price for them. PM Me if you're interested.

I talked to my dad and he is interested, i will wait few days and i will most likely take it. Bike has Pro Taper bar, bark busters and enduro tires so i can go visit the trails right away if i get it.
I really liked the bike, what i liked the most is how confident i was when i fired it up and rode it around, i was never so confident on other bikes i tried out. I was jumping it with ease, opening the throtle and sliding in corners like i'm in car. What a great bike, real eye opener for me. I would really like to get that bike.

But if i get the bike i will contact you and buy some parts if you are wiling to ship because some things like skid plate are ridiculously expensive in my country.
