Ride Engineering’s 2019 KX450 arrived this week! This bike has been getting a lot of great reviews and with so many changes (new frame, new engine, new spring forks, hydraulic clutch, electric start and new linkage) we had to get one to see what improvements can be made!
Ride Engineering needs your support - How can we earn your business? After barely surviving the real estate crash in 2009-11 Ride Eng. managed to get back on track and increase sales to an all-time high in 2014 of about $650K.
Ride Engineering Billet Brake Caliper Version 2 is in stock now! Without sacrificing performance, version 2 is much easier to bleed and reduces drag on the front wheel. The 1.5mm larger pistons are now nickel plated with deeper o-ring grooves over version
Last year’s test bike is for sale! This bike is a tribute to the 2017 MCR team riders Mike Alessi, Justin Brayton and Vince Friese (hence the #816). It’s in excellent condition with only 51 hours of use. The bike was primarily used for product testing and marketing/sales photos and videos.
Check out all the modifications we made to new 2018 RMZ450 to get the bike competitive with the other 450s in class for motocross and off-road riding. See what Gary Sutherlin (2017 WORCS champ) and Carlen Gardner (supercross rider) have to say about our build as they compare it to the stock bike.
Showa Damper Mounts: how we install onto aluminum frames - Ride Engineering offers Showa damper mounting kits for the following brands: Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki, KTM and Husqvarna to further improve handling and control entering and exiting corners. Honda CRFs have come with these parts stock from 2008-2016 and we continue to provide the lower mounting point on our CRF triple clamps as Honda continues to provide the frame mount on the 2017 & 18 models.
Why use a suspension link? There are lowering links and performance links. Ride Eng. performance links are typically between 1 and 1.5mm longer than stock. For example the one we make for the 2017 yz450f is 1.5mm longer. What this link does is it helps balance the bike with a sag setting of around 103/104mm.
RMZ VIDEO COMING SOON: Check out Gary Sutherlin, the 2017 WORCS champ and Carlen Gardner, rookie supercross racer both ride the 2018 Ride Engineering RMZ450 and compare it to the stock bike at Competitive Edge MX Park. Can the bike that finished last in all the shoot-outs move into first?
