I race an 06 honda 450r. Just got this low hour creme puff in a trade. Still has the original tires (not dry rotting) with the tits on them. My honda has mega hours on it, but I'm still happy with it. I'm wondering if this 04 would make me a good race bike since it is like new. I cleaned the carb and ran it down the street. It feels pretty strong. I hate to get it dirty. I can't find much on the internet about the strengths and weaknesses of this bike. I'll add some pics shortly. Opinions?
