I have a 09 and I love it! I had a 05 CRF 450 before it and it felt like a tractor to the 09. I have about 50 hr on mine and no problem at all, the valves are even in spec! The bike feel so light and nimbel.

I have the slipstream filter in tank and I think that one is a must so that you don't ruin your fluid filter. I change the oils and oil filter every 5-10 hours.

I have the hinson six spring clutch and magura hyd clutch, becaus I like a easy clutch pull. Plus some other mods to my liking..

I love mine. It's the first 450 I've every had and coming from a 250f I was surprised at how light the bike feels compared to the other 450's. It's got a magura hyd clutch and after feeling the clutch pull on another with the stock set up I'd say it's a must have. I'm just over 50 hours and valves are still spot on. Some people have had problems starting the bike as did I when I first got it but once I figured out the correct sequence I can start in in 2 kicks hot or cold. I've always been a big Kawi fan and the handling took some getting use to but now I'll say it's the best bike I've ever ridden.
