Hello! My name is Toby Meissner i am from Westminster Co i bought a 08 ds 450 about 6 months ago i was searching for tuning tips for the ds 450 and this site popped up, thats how i learned all about the ol' pink wire cut. i am currently all stock, i run with no air box lid and i also took the sparky out of my pipe and drilled some holes in the baffle. it ran well after that i just cut the wire today and there is a noticable differance. if anyone knows of any performance parts or engine mods let me know cuz i cant find any parts for the thing

Welcome to the forums Toby. For bolt ons theres pipes, air filters, fuel controllers and engine mods theres pistons,cams, stroker cranks and big bores. I just purchased a air filter and HMF slip-on for my ds. Atv Galaxy carries alot of parts for the ds.

The Hmf is still on order. Which one did u get, i choose the ironman series cuz its got the biggest core. I think OMW Racing has the 6mm crank. Rossier has pistons, cams, exhaust, and a intake.

Hey Zach, welcome to the site. Sounds like you've got a great list of mods already on order and I'm sure you'll enjoy riding the DS around when you get back. Post up some pics and vids when you get a chance, and also maybe some opinions on the mods, which ones add power, etc.

Hello,
My names Travis, i recenty purchased an '08 Ds450x for my mrs for her birthday so she could come riding with me on my '09 CRF 450. I live in Perth Western Australia.
The bike is stock apart from a full yoshi system, it only has 3.5 hrs and we've had it roughly a month. My brother has a raptor 700 and in the dunes i was all over him, he couldnt get away. When i pruchased the yoshi came installed but apparently didnt need to be re-mapped/tuned.... thought that was a bit strange?

I love the bike and so does my mrs, but today after its second outing, its having temp problems and is now in 'limp home' mode. As you can imagine we are frustrated, we had been looking forward to it for ages. I'm going to do some searching and find out if this is a common problem.

Cheers

Hello,

Just went and sat on a 08 DS450X today and it is the bike for me. It has been about 8 years since I have owned a quad....87 Honda 250r which I loved.... I have been doing quite a bit of research on all quads and due to the weight and the innovative things going on at DS w/the 450s I'm going to jump in.

Have to sell the wife on the idea of buying it 3 months premature but there's only 1 left at the local stealership and they want $5500 for it. Seems like a great deal...Very excited to see what the bike can do! 4 strokes are insanely powerful, only from riding my buddies mx prepped yfz450r...man they have some serious pull!
