Here is my LTR and some pics of me practicing on my buddies track. I love the way this thing feels. It handles good, jumps good, feels good in the air. I can't see myself owning anything else!! Still waiting on my nerfs and cherry bomb.

In the still photos I have 20" Shredders on it. I also put some 22" Holeshot HD's on the front and that's what I ran in this cross country race. The rears seemed to work pretty good, but it was so dry that nothing was hooking up. I loved the HD's on the front. I will probably get some for the rear as soon as money allows.

As for the jumping pics, I had the stock tires on it. I plan to run them only for motocross because where I usually ride I need more ground clearance.

Oh yeah!! All of my buddy's have hopped up YFZ's. We have an arenacross race this weekend so I will show them what a Suzuki can do! I already beat them last year at this race on my LT250R. I think they are really scared now!

Not sure what you mean exactly. If you mean do I have the settings dialed in then yes. I played with the settings at that track until it felt right. For that cross country race I backed the preload and compression all the way off and nearly all the way off on the rebound.

action shots

I was just wondering how those shocks work on your ltr450 compared to your buddies suped up yamahas?


Is your suzuki snappy?

Believe it or not (many people don't actually realize it), but shocks do break/wear in similar to how say riding boots do. Internal oil heating and such is needed before they will run to maximum performance...it doesn't take an extremely long time for them to break-in, but they definitely "loosen up". It isn't like a motor where there is an exact science to the procedure, more or less just using them and they will work much better after normally two hours.

I love the shocks on the ltr. They feel a ton better to me than the stockers on the yfz. My brother and one other buddy have long travel elka quad rate elites on their yfz's. In comparison to them, I would say the elkas soak up a lot more of the small bumps like in cross country racing the shocks on the ltr are pretty stiff. However, for motocrossing, I think the ltr shocks feel almost just as good as the elkas. I don't know for sure as I haven't ridden it in a motocross race yet just practiced, but I will find out this weekend.

Actually the more I ride it the better the shocks feel so maybe they are getting broken in. I just thought maybe I was getting more adjusted to the quad.
