Alright so I'm looking at purchasing a brand new 450f. First ill give a little background on myself. I'm 20 years old, 6 ft and about 155lbs. I've been riding dirtbikes since I was 12 and on the street since I was 18. This was my first year racing in open C. My current bike is a 1997 cr250 with basic mods. I'm looking to upgrade becauese I feel like this bike is holding me back in the suspension department. Bike has plenty of power and is faster with a worn rear tire then a lot of the clapped out four strokes I race against in c class. Plus I have a decent job finally and wanna treat my self. Now i know I'm in c class and shouldn't be too worried about my bike, but if I keep the cr its gonna be over $1000 this winter to get it where I want it motor and suspension wise. I don't really want a 250f just because I feel like I will always regret not getting the power of the 450. So who here actually has or ridden some of the new 450fs? I don't want your 13 year old ass who read a review saying one bike is better then the other. I want answeres from people with real experience. Right now I'm leaning towards the new yz450f. It looks good, revolutionary design, lots of power, ext. Although the crf looks preatty sweet too. I used to be all about the kx but now I feel different and drawn away from them. Havnt heard much about the Suzuki and ktm either. So more or less yz450f vs. Crf450r, or if you have opinions on the others please chime in. Thanks.
