Lonestar CRF 450

4 posts in this topic

I have a '02 crf450 /Lonestar chassis quad I have been building.It has a 480cc. kit,Hotcams stage 2 cam ,ESR clone stepped header& silencer.and a ESR TRX450r airbox eliminator. 45 pilot. second clip from bottom on the needle,210 main. The problem I'm having is that the bike will not pull on the top end!! It has great bottom and a wicked midrange,just is really flat on the top. WTH?? :bonk:

its the intake tube you have clamped to the carb.the bell mouth is not tapered on the carb.the air hits the flat surface and creates major turbulence.

the velicity stack is built into the crf air boot.

basically,those air box elimanator kits are an expensive way to slow your stuff down.

you need to call RHC and have him modify your carb so it will work with out the air box.

heres a dyno graph from a crf that has one these air box eliminators.


the blue line is after installing the air box eliminator.the customer threw it away and went to a 05 crf air boot.

      I've been in the hospital for two months. During those two months I was bed bound so I didn't move so I got really weak. After that they made me go to physical therapy for 2 and a half weeks. I was discharged two days ago.  I'm a 21 year old male. I was burned 57 percent of my body with 3rd and 2nd degree burns on both my legs, my back, butt, and right arm. Mainly the back of the areas are burned but the front isn't as bad as the back. Anyways, I had to learn how to walk again and as I see my progress, I can't help but wonder will I ever be able to ride again? My strength is coming back slowly but I still feel stiff and very weak. Has anyone else on this board gone through this? I would hate to give up on riding due to this. No smart ass comments please and no rude answers. Thank you!

      What's going on guys, so I'm making my ssr 125 into a stunt bike, i put rear pegs on and I need to make a rear handbrake setup, I was thinking of buying a front brake setup and disconnecting the hose with the banjo bolts and buying a longer hose, then making a bracket to mount the caliper on, would that work? does anyone have a setup that they know forsure works that won't cost an arm and a leg?

      Well, I did everything that I could, but it turns out that I am just not able to afford to keep my bike.  This is truly a sad time for me and now I'm trying to recoup some money on all of these parts I had bought.  From my understanding, the classified section of the forum is down? I'm looking for a good way to post what I have for sale.  Parts include: Full FMF exhaust with the megabomb mid-pipe, EJK tuner, and Racetech Suspension kit (Gold Valves, Spring kit, and rear shock) which was never installed.  I weigh 165lbs and had the rear shock set up for enduro style riding.  I will post pics of everything when I get home along with rough prices on everything that I have. I just wanted to put this info out there, and to see where the most appropriate place to post would be. Thanks in advance for any information that you can give me, and feel free to PM me if you want to make an offer on anything before I post again.
