I have a question about the 380 kit.

The question is really quite simple, what is the reason to make a 380 out of a 450?

Too much power in tight wooded trails. Yes you can have too much power sometimes.

Soft manageable power is what you want in the tight stuff.

The mellower bike actually turns better and feels lighter due to less inertia from the bigger motor.

My buddy has a 380 and swears it feels 15lbs lighter than when it was a 450.

I agree...much lighter feeling when riding in the tight stuff...little harder to loft the wheel, but still capable...I liked it and normally I like the 450 and 550.

I believe you use old FE400 top end to make the 380.

I've rode both an Fe 380 and an Fc 380. Both give you the impression of being 15-20 lbs lighter than a 450, but the Fc is much raster revving, a real barn burner of a bike. Its will be a real option for those who ride a 250 f offroad and would like a little more power and less weight, ( remember the 450 is 10lbs lighter than a CFRX/WR/TE 250 )
