CRF450R plastics on a CRF450X?

I tried the search button but could not find anything useful.

I've seen some people say you can cut the graphics of an R to fit the X but does the plastics of an 2008 R fit on an 2008 X bike?

I've just changed from a 2003 CRF450R to a 2008 CRF450X and they are way too dissimilar to tell. Anybody know?

I am looking for a set of black plastics and Monster Energy graphics for my 2008 CRF450X if anyone know of a place that sell them :busted:

Try UFO plastics I think there the only after market Black for the X

I don't believe the plastics from an R will work on an X. There have been a few posts/?'s on that- but the differences I've noticed are:

The shrouds are different because the tanks are not the same. They might fit with some modification or trimming- I'm not sure.

The left sideplate is definitely different (because of the door), I'm not sure about the right side.

The rear fender is a lot different, as the X has a large section running down the left side (underneath) which the R doesn't have.

The numberplate is obviously a lot different- Putting an R plate on an X would be a lot easier with aftermarket triple clamps, but the stock upper triple has tabs for the odo, etc which make mounting an R plate (& have it look decent) difficult.

The front fender is the only piece that's the same or easily swapped.

Nope the R one will not work. Shrouds holes are off, and like guycomer said on the number plate and rear fender. UFO makes them in black for the X. Call the TT store they can order them for you. :busted:

Will do, thanks guys :busted:

      Hey guys I could really use some help. I bought a 2005 CRF 450x that has an aftermarket air filter, full FMF exhaust system (pipe and header), removed backfire screen, and removed air snorkel. Bike idles and starts just fine, but when I hold the throttle anywhere from barely at all to about 1/2 it bogs, wants to die, and backfires. Seems like lean running conditions to me because if i leave the choke on the problem mostly goes away. Additionally, if i move the air screw out almost all the way (to the point where it could vibrate off), it seems to clean up a little bit. I am trying to determine whether bigger jet(s) would fix it or if its something else. My dad thought it might be the float level, but I'm really not sure. Thanks in advance for your help!

      hi, I'm buying a crf450x and this is the first 450x I'm gonna own but i was a bit confused on one of the pictures. i checked on other crf450x pictures and could not find this on any of the others. There is a gap right below the air filter and above the swingarm and I was wondering if it was normal.

      I have a 05 CRF450X that was just rebuilt that is not starting via its electric start. I can start it with the kick starter as well as a rolling start down a hill though. Once started it seems to run just fine. I have it at a bike shop right now and they are stumped as well. So far I know the battery has been tested/replaced, the carb has been cleaned, jetting is good, and they have also tested the starter motor and things all look okay. Any ideas where to look next?
