Default christini 450

Shipping company called today and my christini 450 DS will be delivered monday.
I had them lower it to 34.5 from the 37 seat height. This one is special because it is a show demo and has a few options plus 5hrs on it.
It is a birthday gift to myself two days early. That should justify it ,Right?

Well The Rokon must have impressed you didn't it....

Never tried many dirt bikes. I think AWD makes lots of sence however. If your as old as you seem to let on, don't let this new toy hurt you. Winter is amost here!

Happy birthday BTW...and many more.

Regards, Kirk

They need to do it for KLR'S

But for the cost of the KLR and the conversion I could get a jeep but that would be tough on single track!

Now there's a birthday smile if I ever saw one!

Pics when assembled required, I think...

Be carefull the first few runs. Hopefully it's a low end torque type motor with a smooth power band....with no surprises.

Regards, Kirk

Good to have more HP. I have an ATK 605. In the summer we sometimes go from Greenwater to whistling jacks or Easton on Thursday nights for dinner. Keep us posted on how it runs and works.

I added a few more things this year. rekluse auto clutch and the rekluse hand rear brake for holding it on the steep trails. extra fuel tank for that new larger gas sucking carb I needed and a cooling fan on the radiator .
I been thinking of a more aggressive front tire for the all wheel drive. but it just doesn't spinout very often.
with my rock climbing gearing I idle at 7 and do about 60mph on the road.
