    2006 Crf 450r vs 2008 Crf 450r

    Hey guys, first I'll start off with some background about my skill level. I am 15 5'10 and 170lbs. I ride a lot around my farm ( literally every day after school unless it's crappy rainy weather or I have baseball.) I love to gun through the hay fields and open trail that makes a huge lap around a corn/ bean field that has trees on either side of it in a few areas. The trail is pretty wide 12 ft in the skinniest area. I have a 2005 yz 125 that I like but my brother is upgrading from his 06 cr85r. He is 13 5'6 - 5'7 and weighs like 165lbs. I just can't think of the fact of having the same size bike as him. I also feel like on this long straight away I am going with the bike screaming. I have been driving since like I was 8 or 9 and have had 2 bikes 05 crf100f and 05 yz125. Both are solid bikes but the main reason I want a 450 is for the piece of mind that since I'm not pro or anything I'm not gonna blow the engine with the stuff I do. Compared to the yz125 I have heard can go through top ends like crazy. I also like the noise of the 450 more than a 125 and I get super annoyed having to mix gas which cost a fortune. If anyone gets what I'm saying and could help me out it would be much appreciated. Only reason it's 2006 vs 2008 is there are a couple good buys in the area. Thanks

    torn between new yz450f or crf450r

    The crf is a more balanced bike IMO because the dual exhausts ales the bike more balanced than just one muffler. Today all the bikes are putting out the same numbers so crf gets it for me

    This is tuff you have no riding experience but want something big. A 450f would be good but it's a lot for no experience. A 250f is good but you sin might out grow it fast if he turns out to be really good. The 250f might be to small for you right off the bat. Fourstrokes require more maintenece but smoother more useable power. Two stroke on the other hand 250 ( equivalent to a 450f) or 125 (equivalent to a 250f) have to keep up momentum to be able to run them with full potential. Two strokes Also have to be in the right gear to gain power fast especially 125's. Also two strokes don't have a engine braking device where you let go of throttle and it slows dramatically compared to two strokes where it takes a while. So basically a four stroke will get power right out of a corner where a two stroke you would have to keep that momentum all the way through the turn or wait a while to gain power again. 4 stroke = easy 2 stroke = hard but fun.

    450f vs 250f

    So the 250f won't blow if I'm going just as fast on a 125 which the 125 is screaming.

  11. I had a crf100 and it was bullet proof. My brother had a xr 80 same story smaller bike ( xr80 and crf80 and the same bike just changed the name in 03 or 04. )
