I am planning on purchasing a 450 in the next year and am wondering which model is the best out of the 2009 and 2010 years. I cant afford anything newer than that and I think that is when fuel injection was added to the honda (09) and yamaha (10). My biggest concerns are reliability, fit and easy maintenance. i had a ttr225 when i was 13 but have ridden quads till now and have lots of experience on a yfz450. My younger brother just bought an 04 crf450 and i was shocked at how much freaking power that thing has when i tested it out. Almost too much power for me, but i am 6'1 185 and i think a 250 wont be enough when we go to the dunes. I was recently gifted a 1989 XR250r due to a death in the family of a friend. its a little rough but should be fine with some TLC. I plan on riding this for a year to get comfortable on a dirt bike again and hopefully by next year ill be ready to move up to a 450. I will be doing a lot of trail and dirt road riding but also multiple trips a year to the coast. which 450 should i be looking for?
