The newest dirt wheels is saying that the next 450R is going to have fuel injection, an aluminum frame, and all new suspension. Page 10...

Fuel injection sucks....Ill take a carb over efi anyday....I use to have a 1986 5.0 mustang that was carbed and would beat the **** out of the fuel injected stangs at norwalk in ohio...Dont get me wrong fuel injection is more of a linear power but not raw power like a carb....Mod for mod carb wins hands down....If everyone has noticed they are starting to do atv and dirtbikes like the newer cars and trucks...impossible to work on without special tools and a computer...they are tryin to stop the shadetree mechanic from being able to do your own work so you have to pay them to do it for you....$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I wouldnt mind the aluminum frame, but not EFI. Also by the seat of the pants weight, my R feels just as light as driving the new kawi aluminum fram or the DS 450 aluminum. I prefer the feel of the R. they all feel around the same weight, but the R has a better comfort position.

Finally got another 450R!!!!

If you love your carbs you better keep em cause there soon to be a thing of the past...Its a shame in my book......I think ill keep my carbed R forever...If you wanna try somethin new you can always buy new and keep old....Thats how I look at it...

thats why i love that im getting into this business..... but no in reality, i love carbs and wish they would stay away from EFI. i no longer fear it like i use to BUT why mess with something that works? you are right in the fact that they manufacturers no longer want people working on their own machines which is a real shame because thats part of the passion. thats how i started.......

I dont think anyone is responding negatively just giving there opinion and furthermore we all must like Honda cause we own them...Simple fact im trying to point out is a carb will beat efi hands down mod for mod.....If you like efi no one is bashing it just merely pointing out there likes and dislikes....When my project R is done bring on the efi and ill prove to anyone mod for mod that the efi isnt all its cracked up to be and thats with any dealer...Ive seen it to many times at car wars/street car shootouts...Ive also seen people at the track with efi get smoked by carb cars and within months have converted from efi to a carb just to keep up...This is in drag racing 1/4 mile....Efi would probably win in a long run but not in a drag race....To me there is no difference from a car efi to an atv efi....Same set up in the way they perform and what you can do to it unless in the last year they have come out with a different type of efi I havent heard of and I doubt they have....Just tryin to point out my experience with carb vs efi...Just my 2cents

Dunno. Honda is still 2/3 of the GNCC top 10 just how it is. I don't see how theyre falling behind.

I think it'll be cool for another change on the bikes, kinda like from the 04-05 models to the 06-09 models it'll make what we have harder to find and make them more unique.

Im ready for a fully revamped trx450r.

carb's will never EVER be a thing of the past so i dont see any reason to worry, if your worried about cost, just sell the EFI unit and buy you a nice carb, im sure you'll be able to get some good money out of em.

just like how you can pretty much build a brand new honda trx250r from aftermarket parts, the options will always be there.

When in doubt Pin it out!
