Took my ds450 for its first ride today at ET mortorpark. I started racing last year on my LTZ400 with mucho mods...

I have the pink/black wire cut, lid off, and baffle out...

Had no problems starting when cold or hot..

Bumps were much easier on the arms / wrists. I didn't have any problems hitting anything at the track.

It certaily doens't like the lower RPMs like my ltz did, but once you get to just below mid RPM it really lites up and keeps on going to the end.

Steering was very crisp when you needed to change lanes in a straight. When in turns it wants to prop up on the outside wheels even with getting over the bike but this is a stock 46" bike. When I go 50" this won't be an issue.

Handling in the air was amazing. I could correct nearly anything that was happening. If you got on the gas to stop the nose diving it had an immediate effect. Even when I got off the gas it produced a reaction.

The stock shocks are also amazing. I was hitting a ~60 ft'er and came up short a couple of times and it was a soft landing. I even over shot it slightly once and had no problems.

I'm really happy with the bike and can't wait to get it to 50" for this race season.....
