Wr 450

Hey guys I am looking at buying a wr 450. I use my bike for transportation and put about 800 miles a month on it. I live in Belize and our roads are bad so I want a dirt bike. Will the engine hold up fine if I change the gear ratio? Another thing what are the best tires for running both pavement and off-road? What is the best oil for that bike?

WR is a great bike, but IMHO I think youre better of with an XT...

Though heavier...

But for your purposes better suited...

Maybe only thing to alter would be suspention...

Good luck with your choice!

U can only get the xt in a 250 though? There is a 350 but it's old

Id look for a 660..

Maybe even the Ténéré model..

Not sure if thats available @your end...

Not a USA model

No it isn't available over here.

Oww... poor you....

Not even the normal 660?

Nope.

I'm running a 15/46 tooth setup on my '08 450 for highway speeds.  It cruises along at 65mph easily now.  With the stock gearing (13/50) it started getting buzzy around 45mph on the pavement.
