crf450x vs. crf250x


Recommended Posts

hey, i was just wondering if it is true that the 450 will last longer (rebuild time) than the 250 and overall that the 450 lasts longer and doesnt go through parts as fast as the 250. Does anyone know if this is true? Let me know. Thanks

In theory if the bikes were ridden the same way by the same rider the 450 may last a bit longer between top end rebuilds as it will quite possibly be reved less. That said some 250's like Husqvarna share the same bottom end as the 450's. In that case the 250 bottom end would have less wear. I think the clutch on a 250 would wear quicker as it needs to be fanned more often causing heat, which equates to wear. In reality you are probably not talking huge differences.

^^^What he said.The clutch is the same as the CR125.However a 250X will be more forgiving of rear tires,chains and sprockets.For a fun off-road scoot I would like a 250X if there weren't a ton of steep sandy hills.Heck in a perfect world(not very likely)I would own both.
