KX450F or CRF450R

Recommended Posts

I start off by explaining what I what to use the bike for. About 60% of the time would be for MX and the rest of the time would be on and trails and i would consider my self a novices ride. I have found a 2010 kx450f for approximately $ 600.00 lest they the 2010 CRF450R. I always have been a Honda guy but after reading all the problems with the current Honda’s (09-10) I am not to sure that I want buy a Honda.

I also found a new 08 CRF450R for approximately $2,500.00 less then the 2010’s, and I read a lot of good thing about the 08 but I want to get on the EFI train.

Thanks for your insight and opinions.

Seeing as how you want on the EFI train, both the green and red 2010 model will be good choices. The fact the Kawi is a lot cheaper and the valves should be a bit less maintenance heavy, I'd go green. The motor is a rocket so think about your needs on the trails.

The KX450's I have ridden are better in the open areas - CR's are much faster handling - no so good in the wide open - can you say "tank slapper".
