I actually think the dual exhaust is pretty sweet. But than I got to thinking. if they made both pipes the same weight, there'd still be more weight on the right side, because of where the pipe connects to the cylinder. It's probably not on the 450 because the 450 is the BEST 450 out of all the manufacturers.

Yeah, it looks good. Another reason why it's probably not on the 450 is because Kawasaki would have to steal it just like the did to honda's 450. If you look at 2 pictures of the 2006 CRF450 and KX450F you'll see that both bikes are exactly the same. I wonder who's idea it was to take a honda and put green plastics on it :

Honda claims its only purpose is to move some of the weight forward to centralize the weight. I don't think they are claiming it is less weight or to have more power, is it a "technical marvel"? No. Just something that may work....... unless the guy on the blue bike is a better rider.

Look closer schwen, they are similar but not the same. Look at all the manufactures prior to alloy frames, not much difference at all.

Yeah, I'm a little puzzled why Honda is marketing it as a "better balance" thing. Come on. 99% of the base Honda riders couldn't tell the difference in a few ounces/grams either way! : I know tens of thousands of dollars went into this research. Surely it was to get the leg up on quieter exhaust rather than a better balanced bike. : I'm just not buying the balance thing.
