WR450F vs. CRF450X

Recommended Posts

Has anybody had the chance to ride and compare the CRF and the WR? If so please advise, as I am trying to decide which one I want.

Thanks

What I can tell you is that the WR will be MUCH more reliable. No issues with valves. They haven't addressed the problem from the CRF on the CRFX. Everyone I know that has owned a CRF has had issues with the valves and overheating problems. A guy I ride with has had a CRF, KTM 450, and now owns a Yamaha. He's been the most pleased with the blue bike. Hope this helps you in your decision.

The CRF handles tight woods way better! :) Needs flywheel, lower gearing, soften the suspension and it is the best handling 450 on the market!

You need a new piston & rings often, new valves and adjustments very often. If you ride a lot buy 2 while one of the engines is being rebuilt you can ride the other. :)
