no contest

Both bikes are killers but the 450 especially if you wait for the 06 is the one to go for.They are changing a ton on them this year. I have an 04 that will outdrag anything out there with the exception of the 500cc 2 smokers (of course mines far from stock) but trust me on this one. They do ride different than the 2 smokers but once you learn it you will have more control and it will blow your mind. I use mine for the enduros and harecrambles and ride some occasional motocross.

Heres a few pics of mine.
A few mods are;
03 cdi box,
zip ty fuel screw,
pro circuit ti-4 gp low boy exhaust full sys,
tag gold oversized bars,
tag black top clamp,
gpr stabilizer,
Gold talon hubs with black excell wheels,
oversize rotors,
alpinestar graphics,
sbf gold clutch cover,
works connection frame guards,
moto maider hand guards,
and a few more i cant remember right now.
It will fly!!

Well, I ended up buying a CRF450R and love it. It is taking some getting used to, but so far it has been awesome. Gotta find an exhaust now. I am thinking of getting an FMF titanium Q2. Has anyone purchased or heard this exhaust? I want something more guiet than stock. Everyone is going to have to get quiet soon. I have seen some tracks already get closed because of the noise.

crf? Ohh NOOOOO!

Please tell me you didnt buy an 02 or 03 model!!!!
I had an 02 and they are infamous for getting to zero clearance in the valve train. I dont think they have fixed it yet even in the new models but i dont think its as bad. I got ready to sell mine and like a crazy fool decided to fix it and sell it rather than sell it like it was and rig it. It cost me over $1000.00 to fix it and i did the labor myself. I sent the head out to have it re-worked at Eric Gorr. Remember that name, He's the pro for fixing it right.
Most people who are selling a crf are selling it for that reason. When it becomes hard to start you will now know where to look.
Good Luck!
P.S. i will say when those bikes are right they will fly and feel really good!
:2cents: :eek:
