'05 - '08 or 2013 CRF450 for the dunes?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for feedback from someone who rides sand dunes and has gone from a 2005-2008 CRF450R to a 2012+. My current bike is a 2005, and am thinking about upgrading a few years to a 2008 or going all in for a 2013, but don't know if it would be worth it. I don't race, very rarely ride tracks, but go to Pismo and Dumont a few times per year. Would there be any benefit from FI here? Would it be worth the $4k price difference? Also, I am 6'1 and have heard the new bikes feel cramped.

 

Thanks!

Id go with the 08 for dunes. the injected 450's have a lot less top end stock, is heavier, is cramped for a tall guy, and have weak gear boxes that see alot of false nuetrals and rounded dogs.
