Hi All, I recently sold my beloved 1995 XR600R CA lc plated, 11 awesome years, never cracked open up the cases. A few oil changes, air cleaner, tires etc. NEVER, I mean never a problem. Why did I sell, well, let's say I am in an new zip code now. The CRF450X (a 2006) is flat awesome, it feels 100 pounds lighter, it's only 50 though. I did get a plate on the new bike, not as easy as was the XR. I know my old maintenance schedule (annual oil change) will change dramatically, but it's worth it! Oh and I did need to come up with 5 grand to cover the difference. If you get the chance to ride a CRF450X, DON'T DO IT, unless you can afford the upgrade. Thats what happened to me.
