Honda CRF450X Forks
The twin-chamber Showa USD 47mm forks are among the best production fork available, but their spec in this bike is so aggressive that only the WFO experts like them stock. Joe Punter finds these forks harsh and deflective, and Enduro guys cant ride them without a re-valve for their style and conditions.
We've developed our own secret recipe for the Showa Twin Chamber Fork, based on our experiences with our 2006 MX Race Bikes. Once fitted with our revalve specification, this fork is transformed. It soaks up everything, with better high-speed compression damping that will eat up square edged bumps and reduce arm pump and rider fatigue. Snotty hills? Check. Tree roots? Easy. Loose rocky trails? Bring ‘em on.
They use 19-185 Series Fork Springs.
