I would say that the Honda is in a little better condition. Or at least it's been cleaned better. Plastics and graphics are flawless on the Honda and there is hardly a speck of dirt anywhere. The Yamaha has a few scratches and hasn't been shined up. Only cosmetics but it's a first impression type of thing. I'm leaning toward the Yamaha since its newer but still not 100%
I'm trying to decide between 2 bikes. 2005 CRF 450 or a 2006 YZ450. The Honda is a little cleaner but the Yamaha is newer. They both have pipes, Jardine on Honda and White Bros on Yamaha. Yamaha has factory connection suspension. They're both the same price ($2000). The Honda is owned by a friend of a friend, so I know a little more about it, but the Yamaha looks to be in good shape. Any suggestions? Thanks!
