What years was considered , not so good?

Recommended Posts

What year model would you avoid if you looking to buy a 450r. I think suspension was a issue a couple years.

MXA seems to always complain about the Honda's suspension. You'll probably want to have it revalved anyway so I wouldn't let suspension scare me off.

Of the carb'd bikes, the '02 had handling issues (front end washing out) but it can be fixed. Bad airbox too. '02 to '05 had valve issues but, again, that can be fixed.

'04+ had most of the refinements of the '08. Lighter flywheel/piston, 12:1 piston and 48T rear sprocket.

'08 had the shift sensor and is considered by most the best of the carb'd bikes.

No idea on '09+ bikes.
