Hi all, Not new to TT but new to the CRF forum so hello everyone..... I've been hanging around on the XR400 section as I have owned one now for a couple of years. I'm thinking of upgrading to the CRF450X and would like your general opinion and it would be great if anyone could give me a like for like comparison if you've owned both back to back. First off what is the weight of the CRF compared to the XR, the XR is a bit of a lump to haul around especially picking it up when you are on a slippery muddy hill facing the wrong way LOL.... Secondly, power ? I love the grunt the XR has low down and the way it will just chug you out of trouble if you are halfway up something steep and slippery and you picked the wrong gear and have no time to change down. how does the CRF compare? Thirdly handling, is the CRF that much better than a well setup XR ? (XR is standard and so will the CRF be) Simplicity, Air cooled versus water cooled, the XR takes a regular beating, is the water system on the CRF well protected and robust, I don't want to move onto to something more delicate than the XR. I love my old XR but we are getting more and more into the tough green lanes/enduro stuff and I am looking at a more focussed bike, is the CRF the one ? any advice welcome as well as any buying advice would be great, anything to look out for ??? p.s. I don't want a KTM Cheers, Gibbo.
