Any Ideas , I want it down to 425 lbs. I do cross country which means no lights etc.etc.:nuts:
I haven't weighed it so I can't say for sure but I cant see a 450R engine weighing more than the 700XX's. The 700XX has bigger everything plus reverse and the sub-trans where the 450R is based off a MX engineTitanium parts, lighter shocks, the stock ones weigh a ton. The engine actually weighs less than a 450r's does.
Oh and the stock exhaust is heavy as well.
I would say it's mostly in the rear suspension. You have 2 of everything. 2 shocks, 2 springs, 2 upper and 2 lower a arms. It's heavy duty stuff built to withstand most of what the average rider will throw at it.425lbs
IMO most of the extra weight on the 700XX is in the engine. It's a heavy engine in the first place but then you add the sub-transmission and you end up with one heavy mother.
I agree that the IRS setup is heavier but to get a more accurate (guess) idea you only need to check the weight difference between the Poolaris Outlaw 525s and the Outlaw 525IRS..........not as much as you may think.I would say it's mostly in the rear suspension. You have 2 of everything. 2 shocks, 2 springs, 2 upper and 2 lower a arms. It's heavy duty stuff built to withstand most of what the average rider will throw at it.
Billy,easy killa, it was a joke.
Quick question my van is set up to take 450r on motocross setting. I am picking my 700xx on Saturday and have to reduce the overall height by about 4-5" . Any ideas ?
