If I were to buy another 450 for the purpose of desert racing it would most likely be the XC-F or XC-W. I own an 09 XC-W and it is a great desert bike. The SX is going to need suspension work to make it work well and the transmission will never work well for desert.

What's leading you towards the SX?  As just mentioned, the SX isn't built for desert racing.  The XC-W/F are both geared much more for that type of riding.
