I primarily use mine for a DS, I use the 250 for the tight woods stuff.
Thanks for the input. Although not as light, I have an F8GS for DS, and also have a plated CRF250R woods bike with a 270 kit for tight stuff. I want to add an E start FI dirtbike hense the fe390/450.
The map switch can make the 450 behave like the 390? I beleive they both weigh the same.
