450 as a supermoto?

Recommended Posts

So washington state has recently passed a law so you can plate any dirt bike as long as it passes inspection. I see 02-07 450r's all the time in craigslist for dirt cheap. A guy in my neighborhood just sold an 02 for 1500 with low hours(original tires) on the thing. I have a ton of cool zig zaggy 30-45 mph roads where i live as I am near the base of a mtn range. I was thinking on a fun reliabe cheap throw away bike for banging around on. Whould a cheap 450 be a good choice? Cost to add all the lighting too prohibitive and are they as reliable as I think they are?

I have herd there's problems with an r transmission when u ride it wfo for too long in 5th.

I'm not sure.

I think an x would live much longer it does have a stronger trans and better ratios for the street.

E start head light tail light.
