Testing on the 2019 honda crf 450 our works edition hand ported head definitely gives it a lot more power over the standard edition we learned a lot about the suspension on the works edition today it’s actually not that much different from the standard edition clicker wise they’re identical internals they’re identical except for the actual coatings

The the dlc coatings it moves around a little bit more maybe a little bit faster than what the standard edition does you just run some stiffer settings actually get it to hold up in the stroke a little bit more but we were definitely impressed with the power difference interesting to see what the yoshimura header pipe does yosh is offering a titanium

Head pipe for the works edition that will only fit on that motorcycle so suspension setting wise we went a little bit more compression in the front to get it to hold up in the stroke a little bit more and then sped up the rebound so it didn’t pack down low under hard braking or coming down on on hills we liked the sag at about a hundred and seven
