I really only ride for fun. Some drag races now and then at Winchester Bay Dunes, but mostly just ride and clime. The real reason I asked is because I currently have a DVX 400, and love it. I know that it is pretty much Suzuki, now my Bro-in-law, he has a TRX450 with the HRC kit in it, and the bike is mean. Its a great bike, and the HRC kit only made it that much better. Alas, I am not a big fan of Honda. I know the TRX450 is a lot different the the 400EX, but my 03 400EX was a piece, it really turned me off on Honda, my DVX has way more power, and didn't even cost as much! After the warranty was up on it, I had nothing but problem, after problem with it. So thats why I'm having the problem going back to Honda. So basically go back to Honda for the TRX450R? or go for the LT-R450 from Suzuki?
Price really isn't an issue either, a TRX450R with HRC kit = 6700 out the door, or a LT-R 450 = 6999 out the door, so price is a hard thing to compare the two bikes on.
