Whats the best 450 overall from 05-09

Recommended Posts

Im looking to purchase a new dirt bike soon and really love the KX450f, I own an 06, just dont like the 4spd. ve rode a few CRFs and the power is awesome even though they were 03 models. Ive also rode an 05 RMZ450 but really didnt like it. So, what, in your opinion, is the best overall dirt bike year and model would be best for mostly trail and a few tracks. Im 6'4 and 190lbs, Thanks

I have a 09 crf450r and love it. can't imagine a better bike for me. but, it's not the best bike for everything, none are. it isn't as high speed stable as the others, because it's a very light, nimble, and sharp turning bike and you can't have 1 bike that's the best at both. I do hit 5th gear on open trails and it does fine because I lowered the rear, that took the twitchy out.

If your mostly riding tight tracks or smaller trails, I recommend it. If your riding big tracks or wide open high speed trails, you're better off with something else.

to sum it up...It would be the last bike I would get for desert, but the first for tight stuff.
