Best bike for 4k?

Recommended Posts

Riding will be mixed - everything form sand dunes, dirt road, trail, mountain, woods, you name it. I am 5'10, generally a 30-32" inseam, 195lbs and pretty strong. I'm also a relatively new rider but have experience on street bikes. 


I'm looking for used, but not knowing much about bikes don't really know where to start or what to stay away from. I don't really want to have to much to worry about in terms of maintenance, but I don't mind doing the routine stuff on my own. 


Would appreciate some recommendations on specific models and years, as well as mileage/hours to stay under. 




How about something like these?

09 YZF250


10 KTM XC-F 450


07 KTM XC-F 250


05 KTM 250 SXF


08 YZF450F


07 YZ250F


03 YZ450


12 YZ250F


'00 YZ250


09 CRF450R


12 KX250f


'00 YZ250


06 CRF250


04 CRF450R

The Duke is more for on-road riding. If you get the 09' CRF450, the first thing you should buy is a lowing link for the back end. Makes a WORLD of difference in handling.



I know, just another bike I've been wanting ;)

Honestly bro, if your looking for some straight torque and power, you cant go wrong with a newer kx450f. The question is can you handle it? I dont know your abilities but I can tell you if you want the fastest bike around get a kx, cr, rm 500. I ride a kx250f and insanely worked kx125 comfortabley but like I said I dont know your riding ability so I dont know what to tell you to get. Just make sure if you get somethings thats crazy you can handle it. If your not too experienced I can recomend the kx250f. I went from a put bike straight to mine when I was either 12 or 13.
