The bikes good street manners really can't be overstated. Out of the 5 big bore street legal thumpers I've owned it handles the road the best. The 14T CS sprocket adds to the goodness. Doesn't hurt it in technical two track either.
Have fun and if you stop in Asheville, a few favorites are Salsa's restaurant, Wicked Weed brewery (downstairs) and the Salvage Station.
Sooooo.... I'm all jazzed up to install the power commander into my 2022 CRF450RL which showed up today and after getting the bike torn apart and unplug the MAP etc. I discover the PC's MAP plug has a different profile than stock and will not fit. WTF. Why would that change from 2021 - 2022 and why doesn't dynojet know this and have a warning on their website? I'll be contacting them in the AM hopefully they step up and offer a solution or take it back and refund the $ Anyone else run into this?
Can get an adapter and ODBII for relatively cheap and also a cheap rugged large android phone. Want to run the Drive Mode Dashboard so should get speed from the GPS but get a tacho plus some other data. Probably the same cost as the 12 O’Clock labs mini gauge but should give me more options/flexibility
How dare you simply ride and enjoy it without measurabating the torkzzz curb?
Yes that should work. Speed itself is not really an issue as you can get it from GPS or simply look at the stock dash (), but as I like to do useless stuff just because it can be done.. speed+rpm = you can get a display of selected gear. With gps it only really works in a straight line/fairly open area.
I'm not saying don't ride and enjoy the 450L. Not looking for any arguments, just curious about the oddity of the chart and wonder if any other companies had repeated it. Riding my bike and being curious about a chart aren't mutually exclusive.
Say it, you are a chart guy! Just say it!
Ha, was just going to suggest that our next trip should be to a dyno shop. Why are we riding off-road anyway.
you need this plug:
it´s easy to confuse i had a wire break from that MAP plug and ordered the wrong one which is the same you have on the PC:
meanwhile i had used the stock plug and was able to mend and solder the wire long before i got the plug by mail from the US
Yes sir, that would be much more fun than crashing through the woods. Who needs that nature experience when you can hang out wrenching on one's cycle? (oh, forgot, we own hondas)
Love when shops put on dyno days. Fun to see what your bike is packing. My last one was a while ago when I still had my Z1000 - some pretty 'fruity' pipes on it, loved that bike. Ran 119hp that day..
Well, yeah, but, if I had 119 hp in the woods, I would be a dead man! Way too much power for my limited skills!
Hello everyone, I'm new to the thread after just having purchased a crf450l last week from a fellow inmate. I need some advice/suggestions for the correct size/brand spanner wrench for the rear shock. I don't want to beat this new one up with the hammer and screwdriver trick. I know the space is tight and want something thats convenient to do frequently.
Sorry if this has been covered before, I haven't figured out how to search thread by subject yet.
Rode about 150 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway today.
Lots of curvy roads and awesome overlooks.
Tomorrow I'm going to take a couple of detours and finish up the Parkway
I plan to stay at one of my favorite MC campgrounds, Ironhorse Motorcycle Lodge
My Speedo has never worked properly but never really worried about it. Not sure if it the cable or Speedo ring but I get a bounce of 20km/h when going steady in a straight line!
It makes more sense done as a pie chart.
Sensor rotor bent, take it off and hammer it flat - had the same
I could not see how I could get a bona-fide shock spanner wrench on the adjusters without disassembling the bike (even with my evap. canister out of the way), so I use an aluminum rod 3/8" in diameter and about a foot long as a drift to hammer the preload rings.
The soft aluminum will not mar the preload rings - just be careful that the rod is correctly positioned on the rings before you strike the hammer.
It doesn't require a lot of force, either.
I got the aluminum rod at Lowes.
It came in a several feet long section so I cut it into pieces.
