i rode an 04 crf450 and it was easy to ride and had tons of power. im small, 5'4 125 lbs but it was still a good bike. The CRF's valve train isnt that good I hear...if you're pinching pennies get the 2-stroke, 2-stroke oil is cheaper then valves :cry: :cry:

I would have to say the CRF because of the five speed trany, and I think it has like 1 more horse power?

But truthfully I really dont know :cry:

But I do know that my old 426 with a 5 speed got flat out whiped in a drag race with a stock CRF 450. My 426 had a Full white bros exhaust, and a few other little mods :cry:

I have both of the YZ's and like them both although the 2 stroke is alittle funner(yes its a word) to ride. Handling is much better and it's got more of an instant punch. The 450 is good for torque though.

The Honda is a great bike too although the ergo's fit me funny. The bars always seem high on those.
