i am looking for a 450 after years out of the sport (still have a mint 2003 CR250) and always rode Hondas for a local dealer...but Iam looking a all brands. I have a few used bikes i am looking at and wanted to know if you had any thoughts on the ones I have on a short list. I am looking fo a decent bike with out the need to revalve suspension or fix major items... adding a new re-map or an exhaust is fine.
2009 RMZ450 - I read the rev limiter is an issue, but found a really clean one
2010 RMZ450 - do not know much about the 2010
2009 CRF450 - may be quite a few issues ?
2009/2010 KX450F - supposed to be big and bulky, but was top in some shooouts ?
2010 FZ450f - do not know much about the 2010
I have pretty much ruled out the 2009 YZ450 for the motor, I am looking to stay on the low side for cost as well.
Any advise would be appreciated.
I used to race A level back in the 90's, i have not ridden in 7 years, but will most likely go back to MX, possibly some trails, 170lb in the 40's for age....
