A friend of mine says the 05 CR450s are coming with fuel injection. He said he has a friend that is a large Honda dealer in Oregon and told him that's solid info.

Anybody else heard anything about 05s of any color?

I was kinda hoping no one would change much and I could keep mine another year. But I think FI would change my mind. Or >5 pound weight loss.

Anyone heard FI? Any other rumors, especially Yamaha?

They are fast. That is all Doug Dubach is saying. He is/was doing the testing for Yamaha on the 05s.

Honda, I have talked to the rep around here. He also said there was going to be a 6sp in the CRF250X bike. So take that with a grain of salt until you get another source to back it up.

Looks like a possibility. Here is a thread on the general forum that talks about it (pics included). Thread on General Forum

Here is another thread on the CRF forum. Thread on CRF Forum

Here is the Racer X Illustrated article that started the whole thing. Racer X article

I heard Honda will need fuel injection to keep up with the Yamaha, because Yamaha is adding a super charger! :)
