I did the thing with the kickstarter to drain more oil, it's working well, and I think no harm is done.

I also have to mention that my bike is an US model, not an european one.

How often do you guys check/replace the coolant ?

I wait all of you guys in Romania to have some nice rides.
Just a reminder that a quart is a little less than a liter. A full liter may overfill it.

my buddy's 250X has the expansion tank in that location, on my 450x it's behind the skidplate under the front of the engine.

mine is an '06, great bike. last bike was an XR 650L, love the X.

It would be nice if you could use the expansion tank from the 250x on the 450x for gas. Not necessarily connected, but for spare fuel that could be drained. The parts are only $35 for the tank and cap (parts #15 and #17). Might be a great option if it is durable enough.

Anyone know the capacity of the expansion tank on the 250x?




Rear of 250x:



Rear of 450x:
Not sure if it would fit in the same position, as the electrical parts in the side panel may be in the way.

SYCAMORE, great pics and videos. What video equipment and software did you use to make those videos? And are your seat covers camel hide?

great idea JTO, about using a exp tank as reserve of fuel
I have a friend with a CRF250X transformed into a CRF300X I will ask him about capacity
by the way the CRF300X prepared goes event better than my stock CRF450X, but anyway I love my 450X as it is.

Who makes that huge CRF450X gas tank, and how much does it hold? Also, I am interested in the GPS cluster - do you have a close up photo of it?

What does a 450x weigh in at? How would this bike compare to a XR650R? Currently Im riding my XRR as a play bike for New England back roads, trails and woods. It does OK, but I cant help thinking that its a bit much of a bike for what I use it for. Maybe id enjoy a lighter, peppier bike for my style of riding. I dont want to give up the power and performance of the big XR, I love how it will loft the front end at will, but dont like struggling with the weight in the real tight stuff.
