Mx setup

Hello everyone. I’ve been racing my stock 08 450r with HMF bolt on. Been doing really well and looking to make about a 3-4K investment to really charge the ride. What should I do? I have little knowledge of what is best. I’m planning on new suspension and a arms and handlebars but I have no clue what to get.

I would start with a rpm dominator 2 axle. And either houser or jb +2 or +3 a-arms. Get a good set of nerf bars. I really like my houser pro bounce nerf bars. Then start looking for suspension. In order from best to worst. (PEP, Custom Axis, Fox, Elka, Works) do a nice remote resi or piggy back setup for the front. And get the same brand rear shock. IShock can hook you up with this. I would also get a mx long travel link aswell. From there with whats left i would get some fasst flexx bars. From there if there is anything left in the budget which there most likely wont be i would get dwt champion in a box rims and front and rear tires. For hard pack/loam riding surface i race on the maxxis razr mx rear and maxxis razr cross front hook up real well. I run 18s in rear and 20s in front for mx style racing.

Handlebars I’ve always used Pro Taper for MX and Renthal for trials and road applications, both suitable and made for all applications.

As slammed said, making it wider with better suspension will make the biggest difference. I feel like the right setup in those areas is more important than having a hot motor.

I agree with the above, with suspension set up correctly youll gain overall speed, Im not a sports ATV guy but brakes havent been mentioned yet, not sure how the stock items hold up when going quicker?
If I plan on any motor work/transplant in cars/trucks the brakes are the first thing I improve, just a thought.
