The tyres are placed infront of my aircraft TX for a reference, but im sure all you guys know how big the bike is already!!

You might want to start looking at wheelie bar options also. Pays to do something before you destroy the rear of the bike.

Homemade Wheelie Bar

Hi guys! I made a wheelie bar for my VMX and it should be good for the MM450 too. I have posted it on the VMX thread at this link:

Don't bother with that, I'll save you the time and money as its made of something resembling solder wire strength . You need to make up something yourself as so far there are none available to buy. I just saw an idea on the VMX forum or here's what I do using the original wire and the front arm of a buggy and a wheel I'm sure you'll have lying around. Buy some shoe goo and coat the inside of the rear guard once or twice even before you've run then I tape the wire to the guard for extra strength. Although looking tatty this body has been around for over a year. You can use a big wheel which I prefer on rough ground or two of the smaller wheels.

I use a big wheel for big wheelies lol . The reason I use a big wheel is because of the crappy surfaces I drive on, the big wheel rolls over the rocks and sharp edges of my track. anything smaller will catch. Mines just made from bits floating around. A front arm off a 1/8 buggy and the original bar cut and straightened. You could use whatever size wheel suits.

Hi Guys, this is my first dirtbike which I bought from Atomic recently for the knockdown price of $399 - ( couldn’t resist), anyways I also bought a few parts like chain tensioner and on road tyres. I want to fit a wheelie bar and have ordered this one just to see if it will fit my MM450.

http://www.hobbywow.com/en-metal-upg...59-p232889.htm

Has anyone tried this option? I know its not designed for this bike but do you think it might work?
