New from Ride Engineering: 2013 CRF450R
Complete Suspension Linkage
Ride's newest product is a full linkage system for the 2013 CRF450R. The combination outer link and center knuckle has two effects on this new Honda. It improves the suspension action and handling entering corners (by holding the shock up in the stroke) and it is more plush on acceleration chop exiting the turn. By offering both components instead of just the outer or inner one, ride height remains unchanged. We also found that the shock setting doesn't have to be altered (your favorite setting will work great), making this a true bolt-on and go product. Recommended sag with the Ride Engineering Linkage is 102-104m.
You can view this linkage, our other Honda mods as well as products from FMF, TCR, SDG, Renthal, Shock Therapy Suspension, DT1, Dunlop, Tokyo Mods and Works Connection here: http://www.ride-engineering.com/videos.php . This video discusses Ride Engineering’s recommendations on how to turn the stock 2013 CRF450R into a great performing race bike.
