This new product from Ride Eng makes three improvements to the 2017 CRF450R chassis.
- They balance out the bike and make it easier to find a neutral position.
- Handling is improved even with the forks set at a more slack position (2mm up) in the triple clamps.
- The Ride pull rods allow the rear to squat and hook up better under acceleration over rough, slippery terrain.
Improvements are noticeable with stock valving or re-valved suspension and not just on the motocross version (R model). The RX became much more rider friendly particularly when changing direction on the heavier off-road machine. Recommended sag is 102-104mm since the rear sits 5mm lower with the Ride Eng. pull rods installed.
