I’ve posted several items about buying my 2017 Honda CRF450R from Horner at the Mesquite MX track when my grandpa and I couldn’t get the 2005 Honda CRF450R started. The ’05 was a great bike. Justin Batty found that the only problem with the bike was a loose wire on the kill switch. Valves were good and adjusted; everything was great in the engine but the stupid kill switch let me down. …lesson learned 😫
So, with that being said Horner was selling his 2017 Honda CRF450R. We were parked right next to him when he told us about the bike. Everybody seemed to know him at the track. We shouldn’t have trusted him at his word. He rode the bike into the ground. He said that his mechanic did this and did that. Yeah, right! Basically the guts of the bike wasn’t even really a Honda. We have put in over four-thousand dollars back into the bike. The following is the latest fiasco that costs us a ton of money.
At my last race in Mona at Mountain West I had problems with the clutch. After starting at the gate I couldn’t get it to do anything; the clutch was gone.
We took the bike into @RS Power Sports in Las Vegas where we met Ronen and his partner Johnny. Here is their information 4450 W. Donovan Way Suite 126, North Las Vegas, NV 89081 (702) 781-4433.
He had to order replacement parts which were going to take a while to get in. I had a race in Mesquite that I had planned on. Ronen said that he could grind down and machine the clutch parts to get it running for me but couldn’t guarantee that it would hold up in the race. It was really nice of him to try just for me; that’s the kind of guy he and his shop is. It started out great. With my new Pivotrax MX tires I won the holeshot and I thought it was going to be a great race but the band aid, duct tape fix just couldn’t withstand the race. The repair job only lasted for the holeshot and a couple of turns. Ronen tried but the Rekluse clutch was beyond repair.
If you would like to donate on my GoFundMe page which would really help me and my grandpa “Papa” out or even know of a company or somebody who would like to support and sponsor me let us know.
