450 advice

Recommended Posts

Hi,

i am looking for a 450 after years out of the sport (still have a mint 2003 CR250) and always rode Hondas for a local dealer...but Iam looking a all brands. I have a few used bikes i am looking at and wanted to know if you had any thoughts on the ones I have on a short list. I am looking fo a decent bike with out the need to revalve suspension or fix major items... adding a new re-map or an exhaust is fine.

2009 RMZ450 - I read the rev limiter is an issue, but found a really clean one

2010 RMZ450 - do not know much about the 2010

2009 CRF450 - may be quite a few issues ?

2009/2010 KX450F - supposed to be big and bulky, but was top in some shooouts ?

2010 FZ450f - do not know much about the 2010

I have pretty much ruled out the 2009 YZ450 for the motor, I am looking to stay on the low side for cost as well.

Any advise would be appreciated.

There's gonna be a few guys tell you that the 09 is not a good choice. Just doesn't handle all that great. I for one can't tell you yay or nay since I've never been on one. Apparently the 09 also had fuel pump issues as well. Good luck in your search.
