WR 450 2 Trac, anyone else seen them ?

yeah, there are 3 or 4 different companies I know of working on them. Pretty cool huh.

the handling would be tricky i would think

I saw those last year when they were trying them out.They said they were pretty awesome the front tire was pulling them out of deep sand and washes also it pulled enough to get over things really well and out of corners. :applause:

my friend in qld australia owns one. he paid 22,000 for it and he can get up and out off anything

22,000 seems a little steep,

I think you can get them from Zach out of Canada for $12,000 USD. Imagine how that would take corners!

i would think it would pull you sideways in a corner if you went into it at any speed

he got one as soon as it came out. there is like only 5 in australia

22,000 AUD or USD?

22,000 AUD is about $16K USD

Hi,

Seen one at my Yamaha-dealer, looks great but that price tag is bid how would I put it.... I know one who was supposed to use it in finnish championship tour but said it takes bit too long to get use to it. Some team used at Paris-Dakar this year but ended up disconnecting the front wheel drive because it was too slow

Timo Mc

Yep, went on a ride with bloke who has one, he loves it and reckons it out-handles the rear wheel drive in any situation except wheelies.

The front wheel is hydraulic driven and only puts down about 30% of the power.

well if its only putting out 30% of the power the rear wheel is, then yeah i would think it would slwo you down too

cant wait to see motard version.

and why not hydraulic rear drive too? maybe someday.

I know whats gonna be on my wishlist next year!!!

This bike kinda seems too good to be true, I'd have to ride one to tell for sure.

There is some footage about a couple of French trailriding last year in the spring. One of them was riding a 2-track WRF. Search on "French Trail Ride"

I know whats gonna be on my wishlist next year!!!

This bike kinda seems too good to be true, I'd have to ride one to tell for sure.

I think they were 2004 only...... I could be wrong, we only got '04 model and they are as rare as rocking horse shit.

and why not hydraulic rear drive too? maybe someday.

my thoughts exactly :applause: add a torque converter setup it'd be sweet!

I thought a guy took 2nd overall in the 04' Dakar on one of these?

Yamaha was producing them and Int'l M/C brokers was selling them for $12K US.

I saw a video of french enduro, it was a pretty nasty event where riders had to go up a narrow ravine with a stream in it and the 2 Trac was out performing everyone, it was pretty impressive.

After some reading on it I found that the hydraulic pump is set up so that it really only transfers power to the front wheel when the back wheel breaks loose, the countershaft driving the pump has to reach a certain RPM. This is not a rock crawler or Rokon by any means.
