Maybe a 450X ?

Recommended Posts

I installed a Thumper Racing 270 kit on my "04 CRF250X, opened up the air box, pulled the plug on the muffler, jetting and the stock cam. I'm running a 165 main, 45 Pilot, 55 leak, @4500 altitude in northern CAL. I bought it in RENO nev. But I have been ridding it for a year now and I'm thinking of selling it and getting a CRF450X. Any thoughts?

Why? Do you need the extra power and WEIGHT? Or do you have money burning a hole in your pocket?

The CRF450X looks like it will be 250lbs +. I'm sure it will be a great bike, the 450R sure is. But think hard about the weight and fatigue of managing a larger motor. If you've got the $$ maybe consider an RPM 302 kit on your X. Outrageously expensive but 37 - 38 hp in a 220 lb bike that handles the way an X does you might be approaching dirt bike nirvana! BR8
