i don't think he picked it up. some other people picked it and he is just holding it in the air. just like how it is easier to pick something heavy up off a table than off the floor.

Its legit, he picked it up. I'm sure its pretty light judging by the a-arms, swinger, shocks, etc. To me the frame looks like a ti frame to me.

Thats what I was thinking as well, frame just dont look big enough.

Look at the dude though, big hands & no telling what his sholders are like.
I would say the expression on his face is saying, come on you guys grab this thing.

Yea thats exactly what made me beleive it was bullshit. I cant see how he could gold something 300+ pounds and be smiling without his muscles being flexed...

I would be willing to bet that the bike weighs less than 300, especially if it is a Ti or aftermarket lightweight frame. Where did u find that pic? I know that those tires/wheels on the front and back are VERY light, because I have pretty much the same thing. The fronts are straight spindle mount with no front hubs or brakes. Its definately a drag 450.

I think it's legit. Reasons why:

1. Look at his left leg at his shorts..Looks like it's being pulled up by the foot peg or something.

2. Someone said that there is noway that the header could hold that much weight...I have pulled several v8 engines with just a strap on the headers..You would be surprized how strong they are.

3. Look at his feet one is in front alittle more then the other just as it would be doing a dead lift.

i believe it. Thise YFZ engines arnt alot heavier than an R engine. I bet with light weight suspension components it could be under 300lbs. although the frame looks stock.

it was probably up in the air for him already then he got a good grip and the stand was moved. you can see he is resting it on his leg some too.

Idk. There is still something that waves the red flag and says its fake. I cant really imagine how he is holding something like that straight up and down. He doesnt have his back bent or anything.
