I blame the mess on all the unnecessary KTM talk
@gt750 if there is something specific your looking for most people on this thread can steer you in the right direction or help with what’s worked for them and what hasn’t.
And my occasional Beta shout-out.
It’s been a subject on here that’s been beaten to death for at least the past 10-12 years. It was determined that by doing what you’re asking would’ve been quite an undertaking. Plus, the forum(s) would’ve lost much of their ‘personality.’ The whole premise of ADV in the first place was/is that personality. You can take that however you want.
The last few upgrades to the site software have finally resulted in a decent search feature as described a few posts back. It works well. It didn’t use to. In fact, it sucked. Hence all the talk about chapters and tabs and organizing. The info you seek is here, and not hard to find. If you can’t find something specific, ask, as others have stated.
I went through 3/4th of the WR250R thread before changing my mind on the 450L... now I've read through all this one! Haha, it was fun though.
If you just take your time and go through it all, you'll find answers to about everything and discover things that you didn't know you needed, lol.

FYI - for anyone intrested in a bigger tank I just got this email back from IMS.
"We’ve talked about making a larger tank for those 450L and 450X models that would be around 4.0 gallons, but we have yet to start on that new project due to all the other tanks we are still finishing up. 2019 was a big year for the industry as almost every manufacturer released a new big bike, so we were very busy trying to keep up with all new molds/tanks. We know that we’ll be building some larger tanks for the big KTM & Husky models at the beginning of next year, and hopefully after that we can start a new project for the 450L. I suggest checking back with us sometime in the Spring to see if there has been updates with that tank. Happy holidays from IMS!"
A few snaps of the CRF 450L in her natural habitat of Baja. I just finished a two month trip of the US West and Southwest and the bike held up fantastically
Made it out to the desert today.
Crikey mate, for info hungry people that have waded through 326 pages of (unsorted ) info, thats awesome, but can you throw us any more breadcrumbs?
You have been busy.
I'd like to hear how the 2" lowered bike is working. I'm thinking about doing that too.
I just lowered mine with adj dog bones and sliding the forks up and it handles great. Now I will say I am 60 yrs old and not going to ride it hard core but again I am very happy with the way it works now.
Anyone running a SUB mount stabilizer? I'm curious what bars you went with to get back to original bar height. I'm looking at Pro Taper EVO - Steering Damper Low (024028)
Like this? Kept stock bars.
And a Merry Red Christmas to all.....
Can we see a pic of your 2" lowered bike?
I went with the EVO RM low
POS stock chain falling apart at 800 miles even with Honda chain lube (good stuff). This one rolls so much smoother.
I added dog bones to lower the back 1 1/2 in. I have not dropped the forks yet. It rides fine.
Our house was a flash flood victim. I was off a dirt bike for 2 years. Yes it took that long to get the house back in shape. Pre flood I was more aggressive, and felt in control off road. That's gone, now I'm more out sight seeing. So loosing a full 2 in front and rear will not hamper my style. Pre dog bone, I tried to plant a boot and, donut, spin the L around on an off camber ATV trail. I dropped the bike. I blame my stubby legs and non aggressive approach. Two inches would help avoid, if not prevent that kind of thing. I Hope!
Under mount stabilizer: Simple as a call to Scotts.
Went and looked at the bike. Now I need to get motivated, and install my new MotoZ / MoToz front tire. It's been siting there for at least 2 months.
