Well ladys and gents, i wont be building to many spudguns anymore :(. But its for a good reason im gonna buy a 450 honda :twisted: its so fricken awesome it hauls ass in the dunes or on the trails thank god i live on the oregon coast right next to the dunes but the only bad part is the gas (its a four stroke) is 6 dollars a gallon, its racing fuel but the downside is its 6800 dollars :cry: but yet happy

Yea CRF's are 4 strokes. CR's are 2 strokes.

QUESTIONS: Why raceing fuel? Is the bike/quad allready set up for that kind of gas?

Either way sounds like fun to me, the last ride i got to take was on a Honda TRX Fourtrax 200, with reverse automatic transmission and hand brake and eletric start, i could ride it, (i'm in a wheelchair), can use left leg and hand.

Some friends of my cusin have a 350 Honda, it's a really good running quad, i can only imagine how good the 450 runs!

Get some pics up. I wanna see it !

TECH TIP: Do not run any kinda leaded fuel in todays engines!! Heres why, todays engines use a kind of hardened valve seats, leaded fuels ruin these hardened valve seats = early demise to your brite new shiny worked hard for engine, this kind of damage is not covered by warrentys. Research the fuel your useing, make dam sure theres no lead in it because alot of raceing fuels use lead to boost octane, for real! I'm not sure about other additives, do yourself the favor, do your homework, follow the manufacture recomendations, after all it's your hard earned money, CORRECT ?? That is a nice bike! The Honda CRF's 650's won the Baja races 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, 3 years running ! Race proven speaks volums to me.
