Hello everyone! Born again n00b, haven’t been riding since I was about 12. Just picked up a new 21 450r and looking forward to getting her dirty. Not a total off-road newbie, spend a lot of time riding and wrenching on my Maverick X3. Looking forward to learning from you all. Thanks for having me.

put an 09’ clutch basket in it, this will save you 1 rebuild at some point. There are springs that fail behind your basket. I did my own with a kit from Bnr motorsports (I think it was bnr?) Was super easy didn’t even have to drain my bike just tilted I over so oil went to other side and took me about 30 minutes max. Easy stuff. Need clutch basket holder and torque wrench among basic tools and knowledge.

Do a billet intake kit, uni 2 stage foam filter and a pipe and tune, remove air box lid. (I like HMF or RP race pipes)

I would also recommend AIS delete and a breather box mod and removing parking brake as some basic easy preventative maintenance type upgrades.

good luck, enjoy!

Oh, also.
Check all your bolts. The power sports dealers put these things together out of the crate behind the damn building with hand tools and a bunch of 18 year olds.

i had untorqued bolts on my 22’ and even had a timing check bolt come out during a race. I had never touched it, it was “torqued” from the factory. So yeah, definitely do your own bolt assessment it shouldn’t take more than an hour or two with a manual and a torque wrench.

check your shocks adjustment settings, I bet they are way out of wack.
