ive never seen an 09 yet in person i love the new head lights and that it comes with 18s..... i raced my 08 bone stock and got the holeshot on modded yfz,suzukis,and hondas but it didnt take long for alotta the guys to get by me..(it was my first motocross race) all i can say is i bought a pipe the next day lol and im working on widening it out moneys kinda tight...especially driving a truck geting 8-9 mpg! i wish this quad had more low end power stock! o ya i took 6th outa 8 guys total... it was alot harder than i thought lol and i realized how outa shape i was!Not much said on the 2009 DS 450 MX. Any one that has one and wants to share their thoughts, or anyone that has raced there DS 450 let us know how you like it, what you would change, and how ya did![/b]
ya it was awesome i was very excited even tough i lost bad in the end lol it was still fun 4 me though.. ya all i gotta do is put the lonestar axle on n its finnished!Right on guys! Lets keep them all coming!
I've spent alot of time going over the 09 MX, but no time riding one hahaha. I've hear alot about the bottom ends being a little soft, but with the right touches i'm sure it can be woken up a bit. VT you say they require alot of maintenance? I'm guessing you mean more then other 450's? I've got an opportunity to race my suzuk again, or a DS, and wanna know the low down on the DS. Everything looks great on paper, but I have no riding experience with them!
Thats awesome Joey. Pullin the Holeshot in your first race! once ya get it widened you'll be tearing it up! I thought I was gettin bad gas mileage? how big is the hole in your gas tank lol.
Keep the info coming guys![/b]
Thanks Vt. Light is always good. I've spent the last 3 years with suzuki and thats been awesome. Last year had a contract, and the same deal for this year apply's if I want to renew, however the KTM and the DS look more attractive then ever. The 3 makes all have their strengths and weaknesses. As far as prices go, the deals that I have on the table, pretty much cancel each other out as far as machine goes. However, for parts that need to be bought to make it as competetive as I'd like, this is what i've found.Xrider: If you want a light quad for mx and so far very reliable, but harder to find aftermarket for right know, then you will love the ds.
Yes it has a few bad parts clutch assembly, but other than that away you go. One thing you must think about is what will be cheaper for you this year, that is a great decisions maker.[/b]
Lol. Who needs a whole when your driving a cottage lol. Thats awesome man. You should post a pic of that rig with your quad! you might need an airplane to take an aerial photo though lol. I got hookup to some fire trucks that can help ya withg the washing problem, although women usually like big dirty trucks even better than big clean trucks! If your ever North of the border around Toronto with your quad come tear it up at my place. WE have quite the compound hereya it was awesome i was very excited even tough i lost bad in the end lol it was still fun 4 me though.. ya all i gotta do is put the lonestar axle on n its finnished!
no hole lol i drive a f-250 super duty thats lifted and that has 35 inch mud terrains... goin to 38s though in the spring lol there is two bad things #1 is gas milage lol #2 is i cant find a carwash anywhere thats big enough lol i found out one thing after i bought this truck...girls LOVE big trucks! LOL[/b]

ya it is a bit dangerous to get it up there with the ramps i got lol...ill put a different pic of them together tomorrow... first ice race of the year for me!That thing is a monster man! Sweet set up! would look wikid with the DS in the back. . . Ya probably need custome ramps to get it up that hi into your box lol. Good thing its fuel injected too so ya don't have to re jet for the altitude difference when its sitting in the back of your truck. WE were planning a trip to the warmer parts of the states to practice for the spring, dunno where we are going though. Just picked up a snocross sled so i better focus on that a little bit[/b]
the mx motor is pretty much the same as last years but the clutch has been changed for 09 and the fly wheel and motor mount bolt have been changed other than that and the head lights its pretty much the same. i've had the chance to ride the 09 mx's but i still like my 08 better lol maybe its becasue its modded a bit more lol, but i do like the 09's feel no different form my 08i raced a stock ds450 last year i rode it for 6 months and i thooght it was really good, way better than my dads trx450r. Then i put a-arms and shockys and axle on it and it was way better to ride, then 2months later i got a pipe for it and then it was really fast for me. I get the new mx ds450 in 2 week. Are the motors different in the new mx ds450 or the same as last years
haha that's kinda funny. We have the same set up, and have the same opinion about it. I love mine too.i love the can am this is my first season on it and i'm doin great other than a miner set bacj last weekend when i got taken out but its pretty much fixed now and i got a big race this weekend so we will see how it goes so far i'm runnin 6th in points (was 3rd till the wreck) i race an 08 but its got all the 09 mx parts and got a motoworks sr4 and a new race ecm, so it just hauls ass lol. i'll let ya'll know how i make out this weekend, o xrider77 i'd race the ds over the suzuki anyday i've had the chance to compair highly modded suzukis, ktm, yamaha's, honda's, and kawi's, and i would never race anything but the can am.
