New '16 WR450

How much does your new FC250 weigh w/ gas ready to ride?

I don't know.  

And do it get hot when riding slow? Do it got a fan or ability to add one? $1K less OTD is a smart move.

It doesn't have a fan.  Not sure if you can add one?  It's basically the same as the KTM 250sxf.  I tend to stay away from the super technical/slow stuff, as I enjoy the flowing singletrack.

in Australia WR450F come street legal from factory. Somehow in north American, someone want to make WR450F a hassle to get plated.

 

Here in Utah, its quite easy to get them plated vs California.

 

Headlight, Tail light, Turn signals, Horn, DOT tires and your on your way. We can even do 2 strokes if you'd like, not many do. Cali its almost impossible to do a 2 stroke!!

WHAT??

 

No japanese bike is anything like a KTM. They are in a class by them selve, with the goofy handling.

oOOPS MY BAD

 

It was a WR thread last time I looked...

We'll help you through this...  :)

backwards tilted cylinder/ head is to accommodate the injection system and get the coolest air into the engine

 

further.. the crf250rally is a looker too:

would love to see one in a 450 outfit (and affordable)

but it has a silly double exhaust muffler at the back..

Backwards tilted engine is to centralize mass

AND:

 to centralize mass

:rolleyes:

Doesn't it also help optimise the centralisation of the forces created by rotating mass in the engine

Didn't the Japanese determine that around 1974 an exhaust placed on a dirt bike UNDER the frame was a bad idea? :bonk:

Uh, that bike has 7 gallons of gas on board, all under the seat area. No room for a pipe.

 

That's why all Dakar type bikes have low pipes.

With the rear exiting exhaust this problem is more easily solved.

not really,

 

a dutch contender, newcomer in the last dakar suffered from boiling gas, (riding a 2012 YZ)

so, I'm not convinced that that rear exiting exhaust is a good solution..

or... maybe he was just riding tooo slow.... ;)
