how do i disconect the neutral switch so that i can sart my wr 450 in gear. what I was thinking for dead starts i could put it in second or first and just hit the button and if the battery has enough power it would just take off and start. Just a theroy but would like to see how it would work. Would this be really hard on the sarter? I tired just unpluging the connecter for just the clutch but then it would only sart in neutral. Any info would be greatly apprecated before I go and wreck somthing

I removed the clutch switch on mine. Removed the contacts from the connector behind the number plate and shorted them out. Now my button works all the time.

I haven't tried starting in gear though, and I don't plan to unless the clutch is pulled.

Is the May 11 HS at porky's still on, or is there too much snow still?

I plan to do Porky's on the 18th and the 25th. I was down the #2 last weekend and the Porky's hills were white even before it started to snow.

I thought the CMA race was at Porky's too, nope. Oh Sharpless is off the #22 :)

I'm nervous about sound testing this year. I just ordered up a silent insert for my pipe today just to CMA for the 18th. Let me know if they do sound test at Sharpless? :D

the race at sharpless creek was cancled. it would of been nice if they would of told us. but there was still quite a few people there and we just did a couple of laps for fun. there was no mention of a sound check and if there was there would have been alot that would of failed. man was it ever slick there was quite a bit of snow. lots of paddling and slidding around but it was fun. I needed some time any way to try out the new bike.(i love it) is the e-button ever nice. i wont be making it down to porkys on the 18th but i will be there on the 25. :)

Glad you made the most of it. A few of the guys that went to Sharpless ended up at the Raymond MX, so I heard about it there. There was so many entries that the day went from riders meeting at 7:30am to last moto at 7:00pm. And my motos were only 4 laps. :)

I think the button is great too, however I think that it will be invaluable in an HS or XC race. See you at the races. :D
