hi all im looking at getting a wr450f and it has the stock wheels rims on it and i was wondering what a cush drive is?

it is road registered atm i will have dot approved knobbies on it (not road slicks) and  i was wondering do i  need a cush drive or is cush drive only needed for road tyres, I Dont want to stress my tranny by riding on road. Help is muchly appreciated.

No, it is not a critical item. It does reduce drive-line shock.

 

If things like cush drive are a concern, it is possible a race bike like a WR450 may not be the best choice for you.

You don't need it

I have been through (4) WR's and have never had a lower end problem of any kind, and I THRASH my bike on the street.
