Mine are with the big bolt in the center hole, risers biased forward, and the handlebars are essentially neutral, maybe a hair of forward roll.

thanks,
My local stealership in Melbourne had a few of the One Industry graphics kits. So at a guess the your BM dealer may have them.

And here it is sitting at the dealer!! I'll be riding it home tomorrow as they needed to put it together and do the pre-delivery inspection/service on it!

I couldn't take it. I at least had to go down and take a look at it.







First things first when I get it home: remove ALL four turn signals, remove OVERLY large DOT spec tail light and put on LED tail light, remove mirrors, and remove huge stock exhaust and install race exhaust!

Oh, and remove charcoal canister too.

Really got to rip on my bike Saturday. Couple things I've found about it.

1.The 450 appears to have limitless power.
2.OEM DOT approved tires hook up much better than expected
3.Stock suspension isn't really meant for harder mx hits (still takes it though )
4.This bike is hella fun.

Oddly enough though, I was worried that in woods stuff the 50hp would get to be too much, but it just felt so light and nimble that it wasn't an issue. I was also not worried about lack of grip, so that really helped me to push and not get worn out. It obviously doesn't feel as "toy" like as my 125 in the woods, but didn't feel like my 650 either.

I'll work on getting some video up. I forgot to adjust the camera for the BMW bars being lower in position than my YZ bars, so my head is looking down a bit too much.

Great bike

Speedbrain has a small rear light & plastic bracket combined which I installed to my bike.

Right on. I'll give it a shot. Does the tail light you have in this pic get brighter when the rear brake is pressed?

thanks,
I'm pretty sure One Industries is an Australian company.
Send them an email with a link to this pic and if they made it they should have it on file and could help you.

If you're not doing competition I would sell the FIM tyres before they get worn down (1 ride) and get something with decent size knobs.

What were FIM thinking when they made that rule about the size of the knobs? Is it just to frustrate the teams with tyre wear issues?
