Yeh Royce probably not a bad bike, but not real keen on the hole where do i get parts from dontknow and or plastics icon_scratch and just out right knowledge on the TM brand...... Italians are known for great things, that are unreliable.

A guy rides a 449 supermoto at Lakside SWS, I can catch him easy on my DRZ400. I reckon it doesn't have much more power than the DRZ. I have much more trouble trying to slipstream and outbrake the WR450's, CRF450's, KTM 450 SMR's, etc. I know I am talking supermoto's here, but the engines are similar in the dirt and supermoto models. I think the TE449 and supermoto version have the same motor.

Chasing the 449


As a comparison here I am following a KTM 450 SMR and a Aprillia SVX550, you can see I have to work a lot harder. Then at 3:19 a TM450 comes past and hands me my arse. He is one of the best supermoto riders in QLD though :)

I don't know about the 449 S/M but the TE 511 is on a whole different level to a DRZ 400,
the only other modern 4 stroke I've ridden is a 2010 KTM 530 and my 511 was a lot more responsive and
was quite a bit faster up to around 120kph or so.

A DRZ is about 40HP, with a aftermarket pipe and simple things it can get to mid 40's. The TE449 is only about 46/47HP. They aren't much different. Especially after both get restricted back down to meet noise requirements for that track.

The TC449 has more power.

Next time I'm riding with my mate I'll see how his stock Drz goes compared to my 125.
I would be real surprised if the 125 isn't quicker.

Ive got a 511. 3000ks & not one problem. 511 is smoother than a 449 & HAS POWER to burn. Keep an eye on the shifter though Ive been through 2. They need sprockets changed though. Mine came with a 15 tooth on the front & they do about 180-190ks top speed.


So what would be the recomended number of teeth on these then?
