Hey guys, now since the husky is gone, I hope you didn't think that I am gone also. Here is my new build. This time it will be a pure racing machine.
Went the 450cc way, plenty of power with a serious weight advantage.
In the beginning of this summer I bought this:
First things first, all the rubbish stickers have to go.
It is only logical that before even start the conversion, one has to properly test the thing. ..both pigs looking for mud
A quick comparison: 2013 model was excessively regarded as the best CRF up to date. So here is my opinion,
It might really be true, but nevertheless 2008 was still a blast, it might handle not as good but the raw power it delivers with a built head and carb was enough to leave the twin piper in the dust while at wide open throttle. But never fear, the potential is all there, it just needs some work.
The chassis handled really well, indeed like it has been regarded to. The bike felt balanced and delivered the power really smoothly.
I hope this conversion succeeds!
To be continued...
