2005 CRF450r prices?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to get some opinions /feedback. Local dealer here in IL wants $6500 out the door. He claims that Honda had a price increase across the board on all units. Specifically the CRF450 went up $200. Is $6500 in the ballpark?

Yep, correct. As of Feb. 1st of this year, Honda increased prices on ALL everything. We are helping customers purchase 2005 CRF450Rs for $6899 plust TTL and Freight/Assembly. The 450Xs are going for $7199 plus +++. Good Luck!

No, I'm not joking...They are the Hottest four strokes on the market and they are in high demand. Believe it or not, there are people in this world that don't think profit is a dirty word. And they are not afraid to spend some money. :)

I bought an 05 last weekend 2 hours east of Chicago for 6100 OTD. It was my first time in the dealership, and I was out the door with my bike in 30 minutes with a free pair of Ancra's. That's my idea of helping a customer.

$6100 OTD? I'll have to call BS:applause: FYI; OTD includes sales tax, reg., and licensing. So when you got your bike home, what was the final amount you paid, all said and done?

They must have been starving to make a deal. :)

I'm aware of the definition of OTD, which is why I said it. They gave me the 6899 + this, that and whatever else you say. But they advertised on Cycletrader.com, $6050. When I told the salesnewb what I saw, he promptly got his manager, and he gave me the price 6100 out the door. No BS, I paid MSRP on my 03, and I'll never do it again. There are dealerships that like to give DEALS on CRFs.

So what was the final price including all applicable fees?

6100, Out the flipping door. :)

Great! Post your invoice...Because I'm calling BS...Why would a dealer sell a 2005 CRF450R for approx. $50-100 over invoice???

Thanks for the info. I'll shop their price when I get to work on Monday. So how much was your sales tax, reg. and lic. in Michigan?

I bought it out of state, so I don't need to pay sales tax. I don't ride it on the road, so i don't need to register and license it.

Wow! Lucky you...Here in Utah, anything purchased out of state is registered for an Off Highway License. So we have to pay sales tax as well. Then we pay a yearly property tax. SUCKS!!

So I must apologize about my comments above. I guess states are different around the US when it comes to fees. Anyways, you got a great price.

:) Still would like to see your bill of sale.

      I just bought a Magura hydraulic clutch for my 2014 CRF450R.  Bought it thinking install would be easy, and I'm not sure that's the case now that I have the product in my hands.  I have searched the forums, YouTube, etc for install help specifically for my model year (2013 and 2014 are same really), and haven't found anything specific for the 2013-2014 model install at all.  Instructions from Magura are TERRIBLE, and are not specific at all to the Honda - generic instructions - so I'm debating if I want to return the product, cuz I don't want trouble or a big install job.  Question: for the 2013-2014 CRF450R install ONLY of a Magura Hymec hydraulic clutch - other model years are different and thus it won't be helpful for other model years - do you have any tips or feedback?  My concerns are below...
      1.  The 2014 model has a sleeve behind the clutch actuation arm that the Magura clutch slave cylinder fits into.  Stock, the sleeve holds one end of the cable, with a nut on the other end to keep the cable end tight in the sleeve.  The Magura slave cylinder, however, slides into the mounting sleeve  - but does NOT have a nut: the tension from the clutch actuation arm pulling on the metal Magura slave cyl tip end is apparently supposed to keep the Magura slave cylinder tight in the mounting sleeve.  Q: Will the Magura slave fit in to the mounting sleeve easily, stay tight, and is there any adjustment needed in order to keep the 4-6mm of freeplay that Magura recommends?  How easy is it to get the Magura slave fitted into the sleeve and the metal tip in place?  Is there enough freeplay between slave and tip end to mount in actuating arm AND the holding sleeve, so that the holding sleeve doesn't need to be unbolted?  
      2. The stock clutch cable and OEM setup runs out of the mounting sleeve (see pics marked "metal starts", and then runs through a metal sleeve that routes the cable through the engine compartment - keeping the cable away from the hot parts of the engine case, so as not to melt the cable insulation (I believe).  That metal sleeve is about 6-8 inches in length.  The Magura clutch cable, on the other hand, exits the Magura slave cylinder at an angle - yet has no such metal routing.  I don't think the OEM metal routing sleeve will accept the Magura cable either, so a) the OEM metal routing sleeve would have to be removed first before installing the Magura - and then b) you have to hope that the Magura cable can be routed in such a way with zip ties holding the hydraulic line that line will not touch or be close to the hot metal engine casing as you route it through the engine.  Q: how easy was it to get the OEM clutch cable and metal routing sleeve out?  Easy as unscrewing the nut on the other end of the OEM cable, on the other side of the black rubber cable flange in my pics?   
      3.  My stock clutch pull isn't bad.  I just like the feel of a hydro clutch.  Any feedback on how much better feeling and easier pull will be with the Magura?  What's your feedback on the difference?  FYI, I'm leaving my clutch plates and springs stock.

      We have a 2016 CRF450R with about 11 hours out. never ridden hard always check the oil and change when needed along with the air filter. Took care of the recall that was required as well. Well when riding the bike was stalled out. Went to try and kick start the bike again. the kick start lever just back up jamming my knee into the handle bars and some how ended up cracking the case right by where the kick start goes through the case. Has any one had this happen or heard of this happening? What is the cause?

      Any advice on what should be replaced while I have the top end off for a valve replacement. Will do headgasket and springs of course, anything other parts you would recommend while I'm going at it?
       
      Thanks!

      The dirtbike is on it's forth year right now on the same motor job. I have to jump start it. Is it worth me trading for a 2009 650 brute force with7000 miles? Need some expert advice. Thanks

      Just wondering what you guys do to remove black marks on your seat. My 08 crf450r has the red/black seat, and after each ride there are some black marks on the red from my riding pants. Not scuff marks, more like patches of black residue from my pants rubbing on the seat. I’ve tried the magic eraser which seemed to do the trick, but lately they seem like they aren’t coming off. Also tried scrubbing bubbles with a brush and no luck. Not too worried cuz I have an spare OEM seat, but I’d like to keep this one nice. Any ideas? Maybe I shouldn’t wear black pants?
