As I recall some of the 06 KX450’s had problems with the piston skirt (or something like that). Check the KX450 forum out and you will find what I am talking about. Other than that they were quite reliable and very powerful for their class. The down side of the 06 is that they only had a 4 speed transmission. They were fine on the track but could be a bit limited on the trails. the 07 and up models were 5 speeds. I owned an 07 and it was a great bike that never gave me any problems.
