On this week’s 4-Stroke Project Bike Spotlight we give you a sneak peek at our L.A.SLEEVE Honda CRF450RX off-road build that we just finished up.

L.A.SLEEVE CRF450RX Project Bike

We built this CRF450RX with Mark from L.A.SLEEVE as an all around machine. Something you can take on a trail ride with your buddies one weekend and then race a grand prix or desert race the next. This was accomplished using bolt-on items from Pro Circuit, Seal Savers, Cycra, Supersprox, IMS, Dunlop, TM Designworks and more.

L.A.SLEEVE CRF450RX exhaust

Pro Circuit stainless-steel and aluminum T-6 dual exhaust systems are designed to improve performance throughout the power curve and come with removable forestry service approved spark arrestor screens.

L.A.SLEEVE CRF450RX skid plate

Cycra Full Coverage plastic skid plates provide tons of protection from the elements, include all mounting hardware and are available in a variety of colors. We also added matching red Cycra hand guards.

L.A.SLEEVE CRF450RX damper

GPR Stabilizer Version-4 Pro-Kits are now available for most popular 4-Stroke models. Pro-Kits include the billet top-clamp along with V4 damper mounted under the bar and oversized bar mounts. We mounted ODI CFT bars for some added damping and lock-on grips.

L.A.SLEEVE 4-Stroke engine repair

L.A.SLEEVE does a variety of 4-Stroke engine work and repair. Our CRF450RX had some minor modifications performed on the head but they can build complete engines.

L.A.SLEEVE CRF450RX chain guide

We decided to use an SX style rear chain guide from TM Designworks. This gives us wear protection and increased strength all in a compact package.

Precision Concepts took care of our suspension needs and we added some Seal Savers to the front fork tubes. An IMS oversized tank is a must for most off-road builds and are available in a screw cap or quick dump design. We also used Dunlop AT-81 tires and Nitro Mousse foam inserts to eliminate the possibility of getting a flat.
