Hello everybody,
i'm happy cause i will buy a wr450f and i want to ask some question about this motocross.
I want it for road(i mean i wanna change the wheels and i will do it supermotard),my problem is the moto is enduro and the person who have it he use it for mountain.I think so if the moto have something wrong because if it use it only for mountain maybe is tired and if i use it for road maybe face a problem.

You're thinking the WRF may be too worn out since the previous owner used it for mountain riding? If he took good care of it the motor and transmission will not be too used for your motard use which will require longer periods of higher rpm riding.

There are quite a few WR450F owners who have converted theirs to street use. Good info is on ThumperTalk and Supermoto Junkies.


Good luck and have fun!
