Find one difference :D

CRF450R2013-92-.sized.jpg?1405362693

And aside from this, I accidentaly bought this, unfortunatelly they don't fit 13' but it should fit like a glove to 09-12 CRF450ies.

Selling it for the exact same price as bought. 55 EUR shipped to EU.

Most of you already know that I am also selling the wheels and triple clamps. Just saying.

Big fail, dude, big fail...

Besorg dir bei Zeiten den Kolbenkompressor beim Aldi mit 50l Tank. Kostet glaube ich 180€

und geht Preis/Leistungstechnisch EXTREM klar. Da kommen auch die Angebote auf eBay

nicht mehr mit, weil Druckluft ist teuer - speziell gute. Was gebrauchtes aus der Industrie

lohnt sich dann nämlich auch nicht mehr, weil da setzt du dich dann richtig auf den Arsch

und die haben trotzdem Betriebsstunden nahe der 10k, was man als Laie auch nicht ein-

schätzen kann (ich zumindest nicht)

Ich bräuchte den eigentlich primär dafür um das Moped nachm waschen mal trocken zu pusten oder um Teile auszublasen beim reinigen. Fehlt mir echt noch, aber das geht hier in der Kackostadt schlecht aufgrund des Lärms.

Hey Andis,

I have another question that I have been thinking about lately.

I personally would only consider a TM or a CRF 450 at the moment, if I was to go back to a four stroke. As we had a chat before I know you were contemplating about buying a TM, but you didn´t. Can you let me know about your motives?

Usually as much as you need it for just projects/builds, the amount of working hours that compressor has to do is minimal compared to whats been pushed in industries/services etc. the gains that you obtain from cleaning with it far overweighs the electricity costs simply because it does the job extremely well.

Hey Andis,

I have another question that I have been thinking about lately.

Heres a couple of reasons:

- Honda is Honda, they are one of the leading manufacturers in both MX or any other areas associated with IC engines including racing.

- The bike itself is well thought out, it is very easy to service and work on when compared to most MX/SM bikes.

- The spare parts are also relatively easy to get (OEM or aftermarket). Everyone makes parts for them, so the competition between aftermarket manufacturers is great, thus the price low. Very easy to get the parts epsecially if you have friends in US who can send you the parts.

- We also have some interesting projects awaiting in the future that could produce ready products. Honda is widely used in many parts of the world.

- But the most important of all, it starts with the same letter as Husqvarna! :)

TM is good enough, but it is noticeably more expensive parts wise. The possibilities TM gives you in the riding can be properly evaluated only by the best of riders. But now as it seems Honda is their direct competition in SM racing. Currently TM is filling up the void in which Husqvarna used to be. That is a race associated void which means that their marketing is directly regarding to racing. It had racing parts from OEM, something that other manufacturers didn't. But lately, they haven't been the only ones. Not any more.

This is all my subjective opinion.

Now, about some a bit more shiny things,

Here's most of the parts saved up for the build except for the slipper clutch which is being awaited.

- FaBa wheels kit

- Beringer front brake system

- EK Chain + JT sprockets

- Mitaka clutch basket

- FaBa triple clamps (adjustible)

- Revalved, serviced OEM suspenison

The triple clamps first.

These triple clamps give you the ability to adjust the front fork angle in boundaries of +- 1.5 degrees which translates to approximately +- 15mm of wheelbase change, it also changes the trail. It also gives you the ability to place the handle bar in several different positions both closer or farther from the seat. It has the standard offset 16mm in the middle position. It can be changed in boundaries from 22 to 10 mm. This offset change suits perfectly for MX also. The width between fork centerlines is 200mm. The manufacturing quality looks good enough, pretty robust joints and all other critical areas. We will have more opinion on this once we start to ride it.

It's written Faor, but Faba are the ones that manufacture them.

Otherwise the suspension is all stock for now.

Here the triple clamps are in place with the handle bar mounted.

Like I already mentioned earlier, one of the front shocks was damaged on the back side, apparently the previous owner had crashed it during a race and someone ran over or into the bike hitting the backside of the shock cylinder. This however has been fixed with polishing and done so well that you can't even visually find the dent anymore, hence it's useless to try and take pictures :D

Polishing is widely used for fixing various stem damages that don't have sharp edges. That's the best way to go.

The clutch!! Part one..

So why Adige APTC?

Unfortunately it proved to be very difficult to find a rider that is actually racing the clutch, so obviously we didn't. It is hard to get accurate feedback in this case because most of the riders only use or have used one clutch and have their opinion about it. That is why it is useless to try and compare it to something else.

After an extensive investigation we have finally decided to choose adige. First of all because it was relatively cheap, second the tech behind it lightens your lever a bunch. And third, the construction idea is completely different from all other manufacturers though simple. It functions basically like a screw and a nut (the engine cranks a screw, and the wheel is connected to a nut, spin it in your head and see what happens.) It may not have such good looks because it is cast and has a silly first impression look, only three springs. That might be the reason why not so many people choose it over something else.

The downside however is that the only compatible discs are adige themselves.

And so, the I.t.a.l.y. begins here, after four tiresome weeks, the clutch finally arrived :D

Looks like Italy is not out of cardboard yet. I think I found a label on the back somewhere that said, "Do NOT save the trees"

CRF450R2013-95-.sized.jpg?1405622906

Let's see whats inside the belly.

Gotta pull the old guts out first.

CRF450R2013-100-.sized.jpg?1405622952

Judging by the look of this, the previous owner had REALLY raced this thing hard, what an animal..

Yepp I've read about it's Construction, Years ago (for Ducati's back then) and found it very cool, as it works in both Directions: uses Acceleration-Forces to compress the Clutchpack even more. That's why you can use few Springs and have a light Lever!!

Do you need Special-Tools to mount it??

No, it requires no special tools. All you need for the job is hex-barrel #8 and # 10 and of course a proper wrench to loosen and tighten the primary shaft nut.

Continuing with the "disassembly" of the stock raped clutch and it's successor. (Mission clutch part 2)

CRF450R2013-105-.sized.jpg?1405798757

Thought I'd press it out with a vice. Believe it or not.. That was the only way to do it :D

Honda engineers have done an outstanding work to screw with the business of aftermarket clutches...

CRF450R2013-106-.sized.jpg?1405798772

Here's why:
