  • Geraldton to perth on a crf450x!!!

    this is something im gunna have to attempt soon so i can check out some rentals for my move in october.

    ive got a 450x motarded running 15/44 gearing i think. already have a long range tank that came with the bike. i think i might drop another couple of teeth on the back and ill be right.

    apart from the fact my arse will be extremely numb....can anyone see a problem with doing this???. if the bikes serviced and valves are adjusted i think it should be sweet.

    cheers, ned

      Good luck, riding with someone? Rode from Kal to Southern Cross on TS250X with a mate who had an XR250 once.

      Once.

      By gearing up yourbike might make it cruise better but you are making sacrifices everywhere else.

      Allow plenty of time and take breaks.

        Fuk- 400kms on a crfx, I run 13 / 51 and it is screaming at 130kms. That is one oil & filter change per trip. Good luck. A supermotard may be different. I would not do it on my bike.

          full throttle at current gearing is about 145kmh, will wind out to 150 after a bit.

          yeh i realise i will loose acceleration...but its got plenty of that right now haha so it wont be too bad. plus, i aint going down to have fun...strictly business haha.

          but yeh, with my current serivce periods of 300kms technically i should do it on the way down hahaha but i wont. filter and oils once i get there and again before i leave depending on how many ks i do in perth of course.

          yeh i figure as long as i stop every 100kms or so, and not try and rush it i should be sweet.
          should make a dvd player mount for the handlebars ahahah...JOKES!!!

          EDIT: no, it will be a solo trip unfortunately

            Agreed... it's not about the destination, moreso how you get there!

            Give you something to tell your grand kids about...

                  Fuck it dude, go for it. 400kms isn't that bad.

                  Be sure to let us know when you are coming down and you can come out with the perth motard crew. Not that you'll really want to ride much after that haul. You can use my garage/tools to do an oil change while you are here if you want. We've just started getting a regular crew together so you'll have to come out when you are settled in.

                  Cheers
