I went to my local mx track on Sunday and basically tried the TT setup to find the limits , but with 22" tires allround. The Speedracers would drop it another 2".
It was scary at first till I got it dialled in , tankslapper in 4th gear and serious amount of understeer.
The front 450r front shocks were fully tested as I over shot the bombhole ,missed the downslope and landed in the flat part at the bottom(about a 30' drop).
Good fun and surprised at the outcome but would go for stiffer springs on the front before I try it on tarmac.
Enjoy.

I put the EHS Big 3 back on. Only second try with it and love it ,the torque is unbelieviable. As for rest of the mods very little. Need more parts Ed !
There about 30/35 450's there but they all pulled off the track as soon as appeared at the start . The only people who would ride with me , where the kids.

I wish I lived closer to you Lee....would love to see the real deal! around 54 is that you or the quad making that squeal???

nice video! your quite the pro video from back then flipping to front!!

I did 3 flying laps with the Gopro on the back , but it packed up after 1/4 lap. Batteries flat !
The noise was the fronts bottoming out , I had the wrong springs on . I was having too much fun to change them and went threw 2 tanks of gas.
Going back shortly with a few tweeks and more gas.(and batteries). :xx: :D

It shouldn't but it does work and I like this setup "big time" . Now I have to figure how to make it work with 23" rears. The 700xx is so easy to make work and fun to ride and I am using this setup for Round 6 in 2-3 weeks.
There is no guide book for the 700xx , so I am just gunna have try stuff and keep trying. There is a few things I will change overtime.
Like the stem , you need taller . First lap out , I felt like I was sat on the front light. If you know someone with a set of TRX450r stock front shocks put them and try to ride it . Be careful as it is a weird feeling and twitchy. :D
Also 450 riders scare easy ! and the kids have no sense of direction ,racing lines etc. Good to watch though. We have all been there .:xx:

do the 450r shocks botom out more or less than the stock shocks?
Alot less. But would NOT recommend this on a totally stock 700xx , theres more to it than swopping them.
Having a compression adjuster , correct spring rate and custom valving makes alot of differance.
