Re: MX a FX450 for an old vet rider?

Good input guys, I'm pretty sure if I go with the Core EXP, I'll leave the clutch lever. I guess the up side is I can always add the LHRB later if I find I just don't need the lever. With out any experience with one, I just don't know..
I do plan on a little Vet MX, not sure how I'd get off/over the gate from idle and/or no lever to help slip going from 1/2 to full throttle while slipping the clutch when the gate drops...?
Thanks again for all the help and suggestions

Some on this forum says the Bergs are pigs in the air. What's your opinion?

I can really only say that for my age and old school jumping style (No real whips) it feels fine in the air to me, yes maybe a little heavier than my 06 KX450. For my son who is a 450B racer, he has ridden it on our fairly fast Hare Scramble loop and prefers the feel and brutal hit and quick rev's of his 09 KX450 (He can throw some pretty nice whips and can hang on to that monster). After i get the suspension back from factory Connection, I'll turn him loose on it on our local MX track and let him throw it around a little bit and see what he says (I'll gets some pics too).

Yeah Taffy I caught that part. I'm just not sure how you would control wheelieing with out a clutch to slip when going from idle to full throttle over a starting gate with out letting off the throttle. With a clutch lever you can be at 3/4 throttle with the clutch just starting/trying to engage just before the gate drops and full when it does, useing the clutch to control front wheel loft and at the same time being up on the cam. I just don't see how you could possibly get off/over a MX starting gate with everyone else from Idle then just hammering it. Like I said, haven't road with one yet, hope to by spring
