  1. I have a 2003 CRF450r. It does not have alot of hours on it but is has been ridden regularly since new - mostly in the winter season. I have had the valves adjusted a few times and the bike always ran and started perfect. The last 2 desert trips it started to run poorly, became hard to start and now after sitting for a week it won't start and it barely has any compression. Is it time for a rebuild of the valves, top end, both?? I am in East County of San Diego, CA and I was also wondering where is the best place to take the bike for the work? What can I expect to pay for a top end rebuild - piston and valves? I took a previous bike to Precision Concepts in El Cajon and they did OK. Any suggestions?

    How does a CRF450x do in the dunes

    I am thinking about selling my 03 CRF450r and getting a newer X. I ride in the Glamis and Gordons sand dunes all the time. I also ride at Superstition and Ocotillo Wells. I never ride at MX tracks. How does the X do in the dunes and how is it compared to my R? I love the power and feeling of the R in the dunes? Will I be disappointed with the X?
